Professor Arogyaswami Joseph Paulraj was awarded the 2023 Faraday Medal from the The Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET). His citation reads, "for the invention, advancement, and commercialization of Multiple-antenna Input, Multiple-antenna Output (MIMO) wireless technology. MIMO is a fundamental breakthrough technology that multiplied the link speed and improved the range and reliability of wireless networks. The performance of today‚Äôs extensive 4G/5G mobile and WiFi networks would not be impossible without MIMO."

On winning his award, Professor Paulraj said: "The Faraday Medal is such an honour. I am humbled to be included in this distinguished cohort of former recipients. Though the prize is presented to an individual, it also recognises the field of wireless communications systems and the thousands of researchers and engineers who contributed to MIMO technology for the benefit of humanity."

The IET Achievement Awards exist to recognise individuals from all over the world who have made exceptional contributions to the advancement of engineering, technology and science in any sector. This can be through research and development in their respective technical field or through their leadership of an enterprise.

Please join us in honoring Paulraj for his contributions to the field!
