Michael Tompsett Awarded IEEE Edison Medal for CCD Co-inventing

Michael F. Thompsett is awarded 2012 IEEE Edison Medal "for pioneering contributions to imaging devices, including CCD imagers, cameras, and thermal imagers." In September 2011 he also has been awarded National Medal of Technology and Innovation. A Youtube video talks about Thompsett's career:



With Boyle and Smith getting Nobel prize, Tompsett getting two medals in 2011-12, and Eugene Gordon awarded IEEE Edison Medal in 1984, it looks like most of the Bell Labs' CCD team got awarded.

  1. Yay Mike. And best book ever on CCDs. We are trying to get him to come to the 2013 IISW for an invited talk. We'll see if that works out.
