The International Symposium on Compound Semiconductors is the venue for presentation of three prestigious prizes. The awards to be made are:
- the Welker Award,
- the Quantum Device Award,
- the Young Scientist Award.
The recipients of all three Awards will be selected by the ISCS Award Committee. The Awards will be presented before the rump session at 4:15 pm on Tuesday 13th May 2014.
ISCS2014 awardees are:
- Welker Award: Dr. Gerald Bastard, CNRS, Laboratoire Pierre Aigrain, Ecole Normale Supérieure, Paris, France.
- Quantum Device Award: Prof. Connie Chang-Hasnain, University of California, Berkeley, USA.
- Young Scientist Award: Prof. Huili (Grace) Xing, University of Notre-Dame, Indiana, USA.
The Welker Award was established in 1976 by Siemens AG in honor of Heinrich Welker, the pioneer in the field of III-V compound semiconductors. The award is now supported by Osram GmbH and given away for outstanding research in the area of III-V compound semiconductors.
The Quantum Device Award was initiated by Fujitsu Quantum Devices Ltd. in 2000, and is now sponsord by the Japanese section of the ISCS steering committee. The Award honors pioneering contributions to the field of compound semiconductor devices and quantum nanostructure devices which have made a major impact in the past two decades. New device concepts and structures, device physics and modeling as well as device realization and characterization are covered by the Award.
The Young Scientist Award is supported by the Symposium. Established in 1986, the Award acknowledges technical achievements in the field of compound semiconductors by a scientist younger than 40 years on the first day of the Symposium.
The ISCS2014 Award Committee was composed of: Oliver Ambacher, Yasuhiko Arakawa, Roberto Cingolani, James Coleman, Hoshiro Hirayama, Umesh Mishra, Henning Riechert, Klaus Streubel, Tom Tiedje, Claude Weisbuch, and Naoki Yokoyama.
