Gerald B. Stringfellow

Citation: "For his pioneering contributions to the science and technology of semiconductors and his technical leadership."

Biography: Gerald Stringfellow is dean of the College of Engineering at the University of Utah. He earned a B.S. in ceramic engineering from the University of Utah in 1964 and an M.S. and Ph.D. in materials science from Stanford University in 1966 and 1968, respectively. He has received many honors and awards, authored and edited books, and published articles in key journals.

Quote: “Electronic materials has been a late-developing area of materials science. Thus, the accomplishments of people in this area have often been overlooked. Recognition by our peers represents an important form of positive feedback to the recipient and motivation to younger researchers in the field. We all hope that what we are doing is making an impact. For this reason, it is very meaningful to me to be recognized by my materials science peers by being awarded the 2003 John Bardeen Award.”
