Cuneo was selected for "developments in inertial confinement fusion with magnetically-driven-implosions and electrode cleaning." Over the course of his 25-year Sandia career, he has pursued the goal of pulsed-power-driven thermonuclear fusion.
He has authored or co-authored more than 150 refereed papers, with 18 in the premier physics journal Physical Review Letters. He was manager of Sandia's Radiation and Fusion Experiments department from 2007 to 2013 and is senior manager of the Pulsed Power Accelerator Science and Technology group.
Said Cuneo, "The award is ultimately a recognition of the research environment, talented people and two decades of achievement of Sandia's entire pulsed power center, which depends on the collaboration of large teams of scientists, engineers and technicians."
He received his undergraduate, masters and doctoral degrees from the
Brener, who joined Sandia in 2004, was selected for "contributions to terahertz science and technology." Projects on which he has worked include chem-bio sensing, terahertz science and devices, plasmonics, metamaterials and solid state lighting.
In 2008, he became nanophotonics thrust leader at the

Brener has also mentored doctoral students and postdocs, and is proud that some of his graduates went on to pursue successful careers and become leaders in their fields.
The number of fellows chosen annually by the IEEE is restricted to less than one-tenth of one percent of the total voting membership, or less than 400 of the 400,000 members in 160 countries. Members participate in research ranging from aerospace systems, computers and telecommunications to biomedical engineering, electric power and consumer electronics.
