The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award was given to Stephanie M. Choquette, graduate research assistant, and Iver E. Anderson, FAPMI, senior metallurgist, Ames Laboratory, Materials Science & Engineering, Iowa State University, Ames, Iowa, for their paper “Liquid-Phase Diffusion Bonding: Temperature Effects and Solute Redistribution in High-Temperature Lead-Free Composite Solders.”
They were officially recognized during the Industry Luncheon held during POWDERMET2016 in Boston. Over 30 qualified papers presented at POWDERMET2015 were considered for the award.
The Howard I. Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award (renamed in 2009), was established in 1993 to recognize authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from those papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual technical conference organized by the Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) and APMI International; to enhance the quality of technology transfer in the PM literature by increasing the professional level of papers submitted for the annual technical conference; and, to enhance and promote the science and technology which is fundamental to powder metallurgy products, processes, and materials.
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.
Metal Powder Industries Federation is the North American trade association formed by the powder metallurgy industry to advance the interests of the metal powder producing and
consuming industries and provides a single point of reference for all MPIF member companies.
