Yakov Krasik

The IEEE (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers) Board of Directors elevated 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 Yakov. This is a great honor to our department!
