John "Woody" Snyder '80 has been named a Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers for his "contributions to synthesis and characterization of magnetic bulk and thin film materials." According to IEEE, the grade of Fellow "conferred by the Board of Directors upon a person with an extraordinary record of accomplishments in any of the IEEE fields of interest." The total number selected each year does not exceed 1/10 of 1% of the Institute's total voting membership.
"I got my start in magnetic materials research through the Moravian College Honors Program (Physics Department, advised by Professor Joseph Powlette)," said Dr. Snyder. "I built part of the Mossbauer spectroscopy system that is still in use today." Snyder has collaborated on several studies with Prof. Kelly Krieble '86 and his students that have resulted in publications in the prestigious Journal of Applied Physics, as well as a presentation at the international Conference on Magnetism and Magnetic Materials. He plans to collaborate with Prof. Krieble and Moravian students on research this summer.
