K. Kirk shung

akira toriumi

For contributions to ultrasound imaging
and transducer technology

For contributions to CMOS device design
from materials engineering to device
physics

A world-renowned leader of biomedical ultrasound technology,
K. Kirk Shung's pioneering discoveries have contributed significantly to the health and welfare of society. His early work involving the interaction of ultrasound and blood has set the standard
for research activities and the development of diagnostic ultrasound equipment. His study led to a thorough understanding of
the origin of echogenicity of biological tissues in an ultrasonic
image. Shung is also credited for developing the world's first highfrequency linear array at 30 MHz for imaging, an important
technological breakthough in the field. His recent inntovations
include applying high-frequency ultrasound beams to trap microparticles and cells and in assessing cellular responses to ultrahigh-frequency ultrasound stimulation.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Shung is the Dean's Professor in Biomedical Engineering at the University of Southern California,
Los Angeles, CA, USA.

Akira Toriumi's pioneering contributions to understanding advanced gate dielectrics and device physics are driving the continued miniaturization of components needed for current and
future electronic devices. His early work on random dopant
fluctuation-induced threshold voltage variation and its effect on
device reliability addressed an important source of variation facing
device design when trying to further scale power supply voltage.
In the area of high-k silicon dielectrics, Toriumi demonstrated
some of the thinnest reliable dielectrics to date to enable high-k
gate stacks. He has also pioneered the investigation of using germanium as an alternative channel material for high-performance
complimentary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), which will
be critical to providing the reduced power supply voltages needed
for even smaller future technology generations.
An IEEE Senior Member, Toriumi is a professor with the Department of Materials Engineering at the University of Tokyo,
Tokyo, Japan.

Technology Award

IEEE Control Systems Award

Michael pecht

arthur J. Krener

For visionary leadership in the development of physics-of-failure-based
and prognostics-based approaches to
electronic packaging reliability

For contributions to the analysis, control,
and estimation of nonlinear control
systems

A world leader in electronics packaging reliability, Michael Pecht
has developed prediction tools that enable manufacturers to make
their products safer and more operationally available. As an alternative to flawed handbook-based reliability prediction methods,
Pecht developed the physics-of-failure (PoF) approach to electronics reliability. The PoF approach provides greater accuracy by
taking into account the actual failure mechanisms of the device
in the operating conditions that the device would likely face in
the field. He also developed prognostics-based health assessment
methods that have been adopted by industry to predict reliability
for critical systems such as vehicle batteries, avionics, and alternative energy sources. Pecht also founded the Center for Advanced
Life Cycle Engineering.
An IEEE Fellow, Pecht is director of the Center for Advanced
Life Cycle Engineering at the University of Maryland, College
Park, MD, USA.

Arthur J. Krener's foundational work on nonlinear control provided the definitive treatment on controllability and observability
of time-variant, real-world systems and has spurred tremendous
progress in the development of nonlinear control theory. Krener's
work during the 1970s set the cornerstone for control of nonlinear systems and the resulting research paper was selected by the
IEEE Control Systems Society as one the 25 Seminal Papers of
the 20th Century for its far-reaching importance. Krener's work
on a bifurcation-based approach to controlling models of rotating
stall and surge has been invaluable to the U.S. Air Force's study of
jet engine instabilities. He has also been a leader in developing
software tools for implementing the latest methods of nonlinear
control.
An IEEE Life Fellow, Krener is a research professor with the
Department of Applied Mathematics at the Naval Postgraduate
School, Monterey, CA, USA.
