8 National Medals of Science awardees to be honored at gala, then the White House
Date:9/29/2008

His textbook, Principles of Magnetic Resonance, now in its third printing, has served as the standard in the field for three and a half decades.

Charles Slichter received his A.B., M.A. and Ph.D. degrees, all in physics, from Harvard University.

Andrew J. Viterbi - University of California, San Diego

For his development of the maximum-likelihood algorithm for convolutional coding, known as the "Viterbi algorithm," and for his contributions to Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) wireless technology that transformed the theory and practice of digital communications.

Andrew Viterbi is a pioneer in the field of wireless communications. Viterbi was a member of the communications research section of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory at CalTech where he was one of the first communication engineers to recognize the potential of digital transmission techniques for space and satellite telecommunications systems. Today all four international standards for digital cellular telephony utilize the Viterbi algorithm for interference suppression, as do most digital satellite communications systems.

Viterbi was a co-founder of Linkabit, a small military contractor, and co-founded QualComm with Irwin Jacobs. He created the Viterbi Algorithm for interference suppression and efficient decoding of a digital transmission sequence, used by all four international standards for digital cellular telephony. QualComm is the recognized pioneer of the Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) digital wireless technology, which allows many users to share the same radio frequencies, and thereby increase system capacity many times over analog system capacity.

Viterbi received his bachelor's and master's degrees from MIT, and his Ph.D. in digital communications from the University of Southern California.
