Alan N. Willson, Jr.

Ned Mohan

For exemplary teaching and curriculum development
and for inspirational guidance of Ph.D. student
research in the area of circuits and systems

For pioneering and disseminating, worldwide, a novel integrated
electric energy systems curriculum for undergraduates, supported by
textbooks and laboratories, and for outstanding classroom teaching

With a teaching style that inspires and excites, Alan N. Willson,
Jr. has guided many students on career paths that have impacted
both academia and industry. An influential professor at the
University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) for the past 37 years,
Dr. Willson is known for his graduate course on nonlinear circuit
theory based on his book Nonlinear Networks: Theory and
Analysis. Dr. Willson creates excitement by supplementing fundamental material with topics from his own current research.
Several students have won awards and prizes for their research in
this field and in Signal Processing, in collaboration with Professor
Willson. He also created and taught UCLA's first graduate courses
on digital signal processing and has been responsible for
graduate student recruitment, teaching assistant training and the
establishment of a graduate student orientation program at
UCLA. An IEEE Life Fellow, Dr. Willson is currently the Charles P.
Reames Professor of Electrical Engineering at UCLA.

Ned Mohan is setting the new standard for electric energy
systems education with a curriculum that recognizes that many
solutions to electric energy challenges lie outside the traditional
boundaries of the field. Dr. Mohan has created renewed interest
with course enrollments increasing four- to five-fold at the
University of Minnesota, and his curriculum has been adapted
by universities worldwide. His student-oriented approach integrates power systems, power electronics and power drives
courses and laboratories and emphasizes renewable energy
sources, reliable delivery and efficient end-use. Dr. Mohan
supports his curriculum with textbooks and laboratories he
developed himself. His teaching philosophy is based on treating
students with the utmost respect and considering if new approaches will benefit their technical knowledge and long-term
career-development potentials. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Mohan is
currently the Oscar A. Schott Professor of Power Electronics and
Systems at the University of Minnesota, St. Paul.

Tsu-Jae King Liu

John W. Arthur

For contributions to nanoscale MOS transistors,
memory devices and MEMS devices

For his paper entitled "The Fundamentals of Electromagnetic
Theory Revisited," IEEE Antennas and Propagation Magazine,
Volume 50, Issue 1, Feb. 2008, pp. 19 - 45

Tsu-Jae King Liu has helped pave the way for continued transistor miniaturization to improve the functionality and cost of
electronic devices such as cell phones, MP3 players and
netbooks. Dr. Liu co-developed the FinFET multigate transistor with Chenming Hu and Jeffrey Bokor at the University of
California, Berkeley. This advanced transistor structure has
been established as a solution to the challenge of scaling
CMOS transistors to the sub-20 nanometer regime. Her
group was the first to demonstrate the benefits of fin-sidewall
surface treatments for improved FinFET performance and reliability, and it was the first to demonstrate FinFETs with
high-permittivity gate dielectric and metal gates for improved
scalability and a tunable-work-function gate technology for
threshold-voltage adjustment. An IEEE Fellow, Dr. Liu is
currently the Conexant Systems Distinguished Professor at
the University of California, Berkeley.

John Arthur's "The Fundamentals of Electromagnetic Theory
Revisited" sheds new light on the most fundamental concepts
of electromagnetic theory with a goal to eliminate much of the
confusion, contradictions and incorrect physics associated with
many approaches involving Maxwell's equations currently in use.
The tutorial paper, published in the February 2008 issue of IEEE
Antennas and Propagation Magazine, clearly, elegantly and
thoroughly addresses issues affecting electromagnetism such as
problems stemming from the original theory of magnetism and
Maxwell's equations. It also deals with the puzzle concerning the
many respects in which the magnetic field still appears to behave
as if it originated from poles. In a unique way he illustrates that
while Maxwell's equations do not rule out the existence of
magnetic poles, they provide a basis for magnetism that does
not need poles. An IEEE Senior Member, Dr. Arthur is an independent technical consultant and honorary fellow in the School
of Engineering at the University of Edinburgh.
