Professor Safari Receives the 2017 IEEE-UFFC Robert E. Newnham Award

Ahmad Safari is recipient of the 2017 IEEE-UFFC Robert E Newnham Award for his sustained and impactful contributions in structure-property relationships of ferroelectric and piezoelectric ceramics, composites, and films. The IEEE Robert E. Newnham award is intended for international investigators in the field of dielectric, piezoelectric and multi-ferroics materials that have contributed significantly to the understanding of structure-property relations. The award is given at any stage of the career for an outstanding contribution or for overall contribution to the field during the career, resulting in measurable impact. The award is named in honor of Robert E. Newnham to recognize his leading role in understanding the relationships between structure and properties of materials and to honor him as a scientist, teacher and an advisor to numerous researchers and engineers.
