Jadidian receives IEEE Guenther and best paper awards at IEEE conferences


Jouya Jadidian recognized at IEEE conferences with Guenther and best paper awards
Jouya Jadidian has been selected as the 2012 Arthur H. Guenther Award recipient for outstanding contributions to the field of pulsed-power science and technology by the PPS&T Committee of the IEEE NPSS society. He is cited in this honor for “for academic excellence and research accomplishments in the areas of high magnetic fields, spark gap switches and modeling of streamers in liquids.”

The Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed-Power Award (established in 1997) recognizes outstanding contributions in pulsed-power engineering, science and technology and is presented every two years at the IEEE Pulsed Power Conference awards banquet. Funded by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society, the Geunther Award is given based on the quality of research contributions (40 points), quality of educational accomplishments (30 points), quality and significance of publications and patents (20 points). The Arthur H. Guenther Pulsed Power Award was known as the Pulsed-Power Science and Technology Committee's Outstanding Student Award before 2007.Jouya Jadidian's publication makes cover of Journal of Applied Physics

Dr. Jadidian (now a postdoctoral researcher at MIT CSAIL) received a monetary prize and a certificate indicating his achievement at the combined 19th IEEE Pulsed Power Conference and the 40th IEEE Conference on Plasma Science (PPPS2013), held in San Francisco, CA, where he also received the best paper award. This paper has also been recently featured on the cover of Journal Applied Physics (Issue of August 14, 2013).
