“for achievements in THz frequency characterization of advanced functional nanomaterials and their applications in THz devices.”
In 2021, at the behest of Professor Shenggang Liu, the IRMMW-THz Society Board is introducing the “Zhenyi Wang award for Excellence in IRMMW-THz” to recognize outstanding female contributors to Infrared, Millimeter, and Terahertz wave science, technology and applications. The Award consists of a cash prize of 15,000 RMB (approximately USD2300 in 2021) and a certificate of recognition stating the research achievements of the award recipient.
A committee of worldwide technical experts in IRMMW-THz science and applications evaluates nominations received for the award each year. The first recipient of the prize was announced at the 46th IRMMW-THz Conference, in Chengdu, China in September 2021. The 2022 recipient was selected at this same same conference. Subsequent winners are announced shortly following each conference in the given year (2023 will be announced after the 47th IRMMW-THz in the Netherlands). Each Award recipient will be invited to deliver a keynote presentation at the next conference in our series.
