Dear Colleagues/Friends,

It is with my great sadness to inform you that Professor Peter Clarricoats died on Friday, January 17, 2020, after a short illness.

Professor Clarricoats received his PhD from the University of London, UK, in 1958 and he was Professor of Electronic Engineering at Queen Mary, University of London, UK, from 1968 to 1997. He was appointed a Fellow of the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK, in 1983 and was awarded the Sir Frank Whittle medal of the Royal Academy of Engineering, UK, in 2015.

Professor Clarricoats was a long time MTT-S member and he was Life Fellow of IEEE. He made major fundamental contributions as a microwave engineer in the fields of applied electromagnetics for microwave and optical waveguides, and microwave antenna feeds. He will be greatly missed.
