Kish receives the Doctor Honoris Causa from Uppsala University

Dr. Laszlo Kish has received the Doctor Honoris Causa from Uppsala University, Sweden, considered an honor of great distinction.Dr. Laszlo KishKish, a professor in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Texas A&M University, will accept the award in a formal ceremony in January.Kish directs the Fluctuation and Noise Exploitation Laboratory in the department and also is a researcher in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Division of the Texas Engineering Experiment Station, an engineering research agency and a member of The Texas A&M University System. TEES administers Kish's research.Kish received his doctoral degree in solid state physics from the University of Szeged in 1984. His general research interests include the study of laws, limits and applications of electronic noise processes for sensing, communication and information processing. Such applications are fluctuation-enhanced sensing, unconditionally secure communications, zero-signal-power communications, and noise-based logic.Honors include being the recipient of the year 2001 Benzelius Prize of the Royal Society of Science of Sweden for his activities on chemical sensing, and receiving the Doctor of Science (Physics) title from the Hungarian Academy of Science in 2001.Uppsala University is the most influential and oldest university of Sweden. Established in the 15th Century, honorary doctorates have been given out since the 1830s. In the subject of Technology and Science, the university has about 160 honorary doctors, including numerous Nobel Prize winners and other famous individuals.
