 EMP Fellows

  List of EMP and HPEM Fellows

Every two years (in even years) the Summa Foundation recognizes the contributions of scientists and engineers by awarding them the title of HPEM Fellow.  These awards are based on many years of research and practical accomplishments dealing with high power transient phenomena.  The first Fellows were recognized on May 21, 1986. 

A special Fellows’ Committee appointed by the Board of Directors of the Summa Foundation performs the evaluation of qualifications.  The Committee is currently chaired by Dr. William A. Radasky, and all members of the committee have been previously recognized as HPEM Fellows.

Six awardees were selected in 2018 and were presented their certificates on August 18, 2018 at the Awards Ceremony held during the AMEREM 2018 Symposium in Santa Barbara, California USA.  Their names and citations are listed below.
