EDS Presidents - Past and Present

After a long day of meetings, EDS staff and Executive Committee were able to relax and reconnect. It was a treat to have so many previous presidents all in one room. Thank you all for the many years of service to EDS and the global technical community.

Congratulations to our Members Recognized at the EDS Board of Governors Awards Dinner

The IEEE Electron Devices Society is a vibrant community with members earning accolades in the global technical arena and volunteering countless hours. Join us in congratulating recipients of recognitions presented at the recent EDS Board of Governors Awards Dinner in San Francisco.


2023 Cherry Award Call for Nominations
Deadline: 16 January 2023

This award is named in honor of William R. Cherry, a founder of the photovoltaic community. In the 1950's, he was instrumental in establishing solar cells as the ideal power source for space satellites and for recognizing, advocating, and nurturing the use of photovoltaic systems for terrestrial applications. The William R. Cherry award was instituted in 1980, shortly after his death. The purpose of the award is to recognize an individual engineer or scientist who devoted a part of their professional life to the advancement of the science and technology of photovoltaic energy conversion.

New EDS Podcast - Professor Muhammad Ashraful Alam


Muhammad Ashraful Alam has made fundamental contributions to the physics and technology of a remarkable range of classical and emerging electronic devices, including the reliability of nanoscale logic and power transistors, sensitivity limits of biosensors, percolative transport in flexible electronics, atom-to-farm modeling of solar cells. He is known for his ability to connect deep, fundamental science to important practical problems. His research approach is informed by the simple belief that “The problem has to be timely, but the solution timeless.”
