The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award has been to Stephanie M Choquette, graduate research assistant, and Iver E Anderson, FAPMI, senior metallurgist, Ames Laboratory, at PowderMet2016.

The award winning paper is entitled ‘Liquid-Phase Diffusion Bonding: Temperature Effects and Solute Redistribution in High-Temperature Lead-Free Composite Solders.’ Announced after PowderMet2015, the winners were officially recognized during the industry luncheon held during the 2016 show. Over 30 qualified papers presented at PowderMet2015 were considered for the award.

The Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award was established in 1993 to recognize authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from papers presented to the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International, to increase the professional level of papers submitted for the annual technical conference and to promote the science and technology which is fundamental to PM. Paper excellence is measured using a system of four quality standards: (1) the paper is scientifically or technically new, innovative, or is a constructive review, (2) has clear presentation in writing, organization, graphics, format, and has professional integrity,(3) has clear industrial application and (4) has long-term value.
