December 2020, Our Lab Leader, Professor Yakov Krasik elevated to IEEE Fellow and received the IEEE Magne “Kris” Kristiansen Award
The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Board of Directors elevated Prof. Yakov Krasik to IEEE Fellow, effective 1 January 2021, “for contributions to plasma-based electron sources”.
In addition, Yakov also won the IEEE Magne “Kris” Kristiansen Award. The Kristiansen award is given to recognize individuals for outstanding contributions in experimental nuclear and plasma science with preference given to areas within the broadest scope of plasma sciences encompassing the generation of strong pulsed electromagnetic fields including their interaction with plasmas and other pulsed power applications
An IEEE Fellow is a distinction reserved for select IEEE members whose extraordinary accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest are deemed fitting. Each year, following a rigorous evaluation procedure, the IEEE Fellow Committee recommends
a select group of recipients for elevation to IEEE Fellow, the highest grade of membership in the IEEE. Less than 0.1% of voting members are selected annually for this member grade elevation.
Congratulations, Boss! This is a great honor to all of us!
December 2020, Yang Cao won the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society Best Student Paper Award for the second time
Our PhD student Yang Cao is one of the two winners of the 47th International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS 2020) Best Student Paper Award. Yang also won the award in 2019.
The Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society ( NPSS ) Outstanding Student Paper Awards seek to recognize outstanding student oral papers submitted to ICOPS 2020 and selected by a special committee.
The purpose of these awards is to encourage both outstanding student contributions and greater student participation as principal or sole authors of papers as well as to acknowledge the importance of student contributions to the fields embraced by the ICOPS 2020.
The award ceremony took place online on December 8th 2020. Congratulations Yang!
October 2019, Alexander Rososhek won the Igor Alexeff Outstanding Student in Plasma Science Award -PSAC
Our Ph.D. student Alexander Rososhek will receive the 2020 prestigious Igor Alexeff Outstanding Student Award of the Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society (NPSS, Plasma Science and Applications PSAC Awards). Earlier this year Alexander was one of the recipients of the 2019 Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society Student Paper Awards.
The Igor Alexeff Outstanding Student Award recognizes outstanding contributions to the field of plasma science and technology by undergraduate or graduate students. It is a prize of $1000 and a certificate funded by the IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society’s Plasma Science and Applications Committee. The prize will be presented at the 2020 International Conference on Plasma Sciences (ICOPS) to be held in Singapore. Our congratulations to Alexander!
September 6, 2019, IVS- IPSTA annual conference
The Israel Society for Plasma Science and Technology Applications (IPSTA) is a division within the Israel Vacuum Society (IVS), serving as a home for those in the community of researchers who work in various areas related to the science and technology of plasma.
As part of its activities, IPSTA arranges annual conferences, sponsored by IVS. So far, IPSTA has organized the annual scientific meetings. The 2019 IPSTA annual conference as part of Israel Vacuum Society conference was remarkable by our Ph.D. student Mrs. Meital Siman-Tov lecture.
She presented her experiments and results. At the end of the conference Meital was awarded the Goldsmith Prize for this work. Our congratulations to Meital!

22-28 JUNE 2019 The IEEE Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference, Orlando FL USA
The 2019 IEEE Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference (PPPS 2019) is the premier international conference dedicated to pulsed power and plasma science, combining the IEEE International Pulsed Power Conference and the IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science. Starting in 2001, the IEEE Pulsed Power Conference (PPC) and the IEEE International Conference on Plasma Science (ICOPS) have combined once every six years to become the Pulsed Power and Plasma Science Conference. PPPS 2019 brings together the fourth combined conference of the PPC and ICOPS.
18-22 JUNE 2017 21st conference of Pulsed Power, Brighton United Kingdom.
One of the greatest honors you can bestow on the distinguished members of our community is to nominate them for an award. The Pulsed Power Science and Technology Technical Committee (PPS&T/TC) honors contributions and achievements in the field of Pulsed Power through distinguished awards. One of them is the Arthur H. Guenther award recognizes outstanding students in the field of pulsed power by identifying their unique achievements in the field of pulsed power science, engineering and technology development.
JUNE 2017 David Yanuka has won the Arthur H. Guenther Anniversary Award
The winner of the 2017 Arthur H Guenther Student Award is David Yanuka. He has won Anniversary Award “for research on the implosion of shock waves generated by underwater electrical explosion of wire arrays”.
08 APRIL 2016 The Institute of Frontier Materials is hosting international experts in fibre and plasma technology.
The 2016 Thinkers In Residence program has introduced two renowned scientists to Deakin’s Institute of Frontier Materials (IFM), Israel’s Professor Yakov Krasik and Professor Gregory Rutledge from the US, who have shared their knowledge about plasma and nanofibre research and how it can be applied to industry.
A world leader in plasma research and application, Professor Krasik, Professor of Physics at Technion in Haifa, Israel has been working with IFM’s Professor Jane Dai and her team on plasma research and possible industrial applications, building on the Institute’s growing reputation in this area.
