Microwave Prize

The Microwave Prize is the oldest award granted by the Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, dating back to 1955. The Microwave Prize recognizes the author(s) of a paper published in any official IEEE publication during the calendar year (but historically selected from the IEEE Transactions on Microwave Theory and Techniques) that is judged the most significant in the field of interest of the MTT Society.

Publications which are the basis for awards are available via Xplore.
