CAE’s Uribe Receives Distinguished Award
In a February 20 announcement, Roberto M. Uribe, Ph.D., a professor at the College of Aeronautics and Engineering (CAE), was the chosen winner of the Randall S. Caswell Award for Distinguished Achievement in the Field of Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards.
This recognition comes from the Council on Ionizing Radiation Measurements and Standards (CIRMS), with award presentation occurring at the April 8 CIRMS Conference in Gaithersburg, Maryland at the campus of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
Uribe has served on Kent State’s faculty for more than 29 years, conducting research in the areas of radiation effects in materials as well as in radiation measurements and standards, specifically in the development of techniques used to measure the energy absorbed by materials during electron beam irradiations.
Uribe conducts experiments in the NEO Beam facility as well as in the College for several research institutions as well as private companies interested in studying the effects of radiation in semiconductor and solar cell materials for space applications as well as in food and polymeric materials.
