Esteemed Authors

Proceedings of the IEEE has published works of many extraordinary visionaries and continues to attract top researchers and scholars. Armstrong, de Forest, Marconi, Mauchly, and Zworykin are just a few of the esteemed authors highlighted below.

Edwin Armstrong

Edwin Armstrong

A Method of Reducing Disturbances in Radio Signaling by a System of Frequency Modulation

In 1917, Edwin H. Armstrong was selected by the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) as the first recipient of its Medal of Honor. The young engineer–inventor was cited for his “work and publications dealing with the action of the oscillating and nonoscillating audion.”

Frank Conrad

Frank Conrad

Short-Wave Radio Broadcasting

In 1930, the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (AIEE) selected Frank Conrad as the recipient of the Edison Medal. He was cited “for his contributions to radio broadcasting and short wave radio transmission.” Earlier, in 1925, he had received the Morris N. Liebmann award from the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) as recognition for his research on radio receivers and short waves.

Lee de Forest

Lee de Forest

Recent Developments in the Work of the Federal Telegraph Company

In 1922, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) selected Lee de Forest as the fifth recipient of its Medal of Honor. He was cited for “his major contributions to the communications arts and sciences, as particularly exemplified by his invention of that outstandingly significant device: the three-electrode vacuum tube, and his work in the fields of radio telephonic transmission and reception.”

Irving Langmuir

Irving Langmuir

The Pure Electron Discharge. And its Applications in Radio Telegraphy and Telephony

The Nobel Prize in chemistry was awarded to Irving Langmuir in 1932 in recognition of his fundamental contributions to the understanding of surface chemistry.

Guglielmo Marconi

Guglielmo Marconi

Radio Telegraphy

In 1920, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) selected Guglielmo Marconi as the third recipient of its Medal of Honor. He was honored for “his pioneer work in radio telegraphy.”

Michael Pupin

Michael Pupin

A Discussion on Experimental Tests of the Radiation Law for Radio Oscillators

In 1924, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) selected Michael I. Pupin as the seventh recipient of its Medal of Honor. He was cited for his “fundamental contributions in the field of electrical tuning and the rectification of alternating currents used for signaling purposes.”

Frederick Terman

Frederick Terman

A Brief History of Electrical Engineering Education

In 1950, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) awarded its Medal of Honor to Frederick E. Terman. He was cited “for his many contributions to the radio and electronic industry as teacher, scientist, and administrator.”

Vladimir Zworykin

Vladimir Zworykin

The Iconoscope - A Modern Version of The Electric Eye

In 1951, the Institute of Radio Engineers (IRE) awarded its Medal of Honor to Vladimir K. Zworykin. He was cited “for his outstanding contribution to the concept and development of electronic apparatus basic to modern television.”
