Winners of the 2023 Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award announced
We are delighted to extend our warmest congratulations to Charles A. Guo and Y. Jay Guo for their paper titled "A General Approach for Synthesizing Multibeam Antenna Arrays Employing Generalized Joined Coupler Matrix" which has been awarded with the 2023 Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award. The award-winning paper was published in the September 2022 issue of the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation.
The paper presents a new concept, the generalized joined coupler (GJC) matrix, which encapsulates both the Blass matrix and the Nolen matrix, as well as their variants, and presents a novel theoretical framework for generating individually and independently controllable multiple beams using the GJC matrix.
About the award
The Sergei A. Schelkunoff Transactions Prize Paper Award is presented to the authors of the best paper published in the IEEE Transactions on Antennas and Propagation during the previous year. It was previously known as the “Best Paper” award and was renamed in 1985.
