The Metal Powder Industries Federation (MPIF) has presented its Howard I Sanderow Outstanding Technical Paper Award to Stephanie M Choquette, a graduate research assistant and Iver E Anderson, FAPMI, Senior Metallurgist, at Ames Laboratory, Materials Science & Engineering, Iowa State University, USA, for their paper “Liquid-Phase Diffusion Bonding: Temperature Effects and Solute Redistribution in High-Temperature Lead-Free Composite Solders.”

The authors were officially presented with the award at POWDERMET2016 in Boston, USA, June 5-8 2016. 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 recognise authors of manuscripts for excellence in scientific and technical written communications from those papers presented and submitted for publication from the annual technical conference organised by the MPIF and APMI International. The aim is 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.

MPIF states that 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.
