Inaugural Issue

Our Inaugural Issue has launched! Read it here.

The IEEE Journal of Microwaves released a special print and open access online Inaugural Issue containing a set of invited papers in January 2021. This introductory issue includes 38 overview, review and historically-focused articles covering the full scope of the Microwave Theory and Technology Society. It also previews several of our  featured and recurring Editorial series including Microwave Pioneers and Industry Pioneers (first articles on Dr. John C. Mather, 2006 Nobel Laureate in Physics for discoveries and measurements related to the Cosmic Microwave Background, and Professor Carver Mead, who first demonstrated the majority carrier transistor (MESFET/HEMT) and is the originator of Moore’s Law, and Microwaves are Everywhere unveiling unusual or overlooked applications for microwaves – in this issue a brief history of the Cosmic Microwave Background Hiding in Plain Sight, to accompany the Pioneer piece on John C. Mather.  There is a special preface piece from popular science author Tom Lewis (Empire of the Air – the Men Who Made Radio) preceding our 5G articles. Future issues will add a Women in Microwaves series – coming in July 2021, highlighting significant female members of the Microwave Community in Industry and Academia and Breakthroughs in Microwaves – premiering in April 2021, featuring exciting new developments and in-person interviews.

A full color 512 page print version of our Inaugural Issue was released and distributed free to everyone who sent in a survey request for it in 2021. We still have copies available. If you would like one, please contact our Editor-in-Chief via email to see if arrangements can be made to mail one out to you.
