This is a draft proposal, that has not yet been submitted. To submit this proposal, click on "Edit with form", check the "Submit this proposal for review" box at the bottom, and save the page.


Is the achievement you are proposing more than 25 years old? Yes

Is the achievement you are proposing within IEEE’s fields of interest? (e.g. “the theory and practice of electrical, electronics, communications and computer engineering, as well as computer science, the allied branches of engineering and the related arts and sciences” – from the IEEE Constitution) Yes

Did the achievement provide a meaningful benefit for humanity? Yes

Was it of at least regional importance? Yes

Has an IEEE Organizational Unit agreed to pay for the milestone plaque(s)? Yes

Has an IEEE Organizational Unit agreed to arrange the dedication ceremony? Yes

Has the IEEE Section in which the milestone is located agreed to take responsibility for the plaque after it is dedicated? Yes

Has the owner of the site agreed to have it designated as an Electrical Engineering Milestone? Yes


Year or range of years in which the achievement occurred:

1966

Title of the proposed milestone:

"Hollow dielectric beam waveguide technology of sub-millimeter wavelength range, 1966"

Plaque citation summarizing the achievement and its significance:

A pioneering achievement in the national development of the near-millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength ranges occurred at the Department of Quasioptics of the Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics NASU in 1966, when the hollow dielectric beam waveguide and the kit of associated components were designed. Led by Yevgeny M. Kuleshov and Moisei S. Yanovsky, this work laid foundation for the original transmission-line technology and measuring techniques, with main application in hot plasma diagnostics in the Tokamak nuclear fusion machines.

In what IEEE section(s) does it reside?

Please note: your email address and contact information will be masked on the website for privacy reasons. Only IEEE History Center Staff will be able to view the email address.

Street address(es) and GPS coordinates of the intended milestone plaque site(s):

Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IRE NASU), vul. Proskury 12, Kharkiv 61085, Ukraine

Describe briefly the intended site(s) of the milestone plaque(s). The intended site(s) must have a direct connection with the achievement (e.g. where developed, invented, tested, demonstrated, installed, or operated, etc.). A museum where a device or example of the technology is displayed, or the university where the inventor studied, are not, in themselves, sufficient connection for a milestone plaque.

Please give the address(es) of the plaque site(s) (GPS coordinates if you have them). Also please give the details of the mounting, i.e. on the outside of the building, in the ground floor entrance hall, on a plinth on the grounds, etc. If visitors to the plaque site will need to go through security, or make an appointment, please give the contact information visitors will need.

Entrance to the Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IRE NASU), vul. Proskury 12, Kharkiv 61085, Ukraine. Hollow dielectric beam waveguide technology of the millimeter and sub-millimeter wavelength range was conceived in 1963, developed since 1964, and demonstrated at that site in 1966. This is a corporate building. There are no historical markers at the site.

Are the original buildings extant?

Yes.

Details of the plaque mounting:

On the outer wall of the ground floor entrance hall.

How is the site protected/secured, and in what ways is it accessible to the public?

As the plaque is supposed to be placed on the outer wall, the plaque will be well protected by the sire owner, IRE NASU and accessible for all visitors and public.

Who is the present owner of the site(s)?

Institute of Radio-Physics and Electronics of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine (IRE NASU)

A letter in English, or with English translation, from the site owner(s) giving permission to place IEEE milestone plaque on the property:


A letter or email from the appropriate Section Chair supporting the Milestone application:


What is the historical significance of the work (its technological, scientific, or social importance)?


What obstacles (technical, political, geographic) needed to be overcome?


What features set this work apart from similar achievements?


References to establish the dates, location, and importance of the achievement: Minimum of five (5), but as many as needed to support the milestone, such as patents, contemporary newspaper articles, journal articles, or citations to pages in scholarly books. At least one of the references must be from a scholarly book or journal article.


Supporting materials (supported formats: GIF, JPEG, PNG, PDF, DOC): All supporting materials must be in English, or if not in English, accompanied by an English translation. You must supply the texts or excerpts themselves, not just the references. For documents that are copyright-encumbered, or which you do not have rights to post, email the documents themselves to ieee-history@ieee.org.
