Kalpathy B. Sundaram of the University of Central Florida will be awarded the 2015 Dielectric Science and Technology Division Thomas D. Callinan Award at the ECS 227th Meeting in Chicago this May.
This prestigious award was established by ECS in 1967 to encourage excellence in dielectrics and insulation investigations, as well as recognize outstanding research contributions in the field.
Prof. Sundaram will receive this award for showing excellence in his field through his research in thin film technology for low dielectric constant and high-k dielectric materials. Both academic and industrial researchers and engineers cite Prof. Sundaram’s contributions in solving fundamental problems with high-k materials.
Since joining ECS in 1994, Prof. Sundaram has served various leadership roles in the Dielectric Science Division of the Society, as well as receiving the ECS Fellow Award. His efforts in education have resulted in four “University for Excellence in Teaching Awards” given by the Board of Trustees.
