Advocates and reviewers will post their comments below. In addition, any IEEE member can sign in with their ETHW login (different from IEEE Single Sign On) and comment on the milestone proposal's accuracy or completeness as a form of public review.

Milestone Citation -- Jason.k.hui (talk) 00:33, 19 February 2018 (UTC)

In the last sentence of the citation, should the last word "eletronics" be "electronics"?

The Czochralski method of Crystal Growth definitely deserves the IEEE Milestone, and the proposal is well put together and substantiated. It would benefit from adding few extra commas, spaces, checking for typos (Jason found one) and possibly numbering the plagues in the section describing the security of the sites.

Wikipedia calls it the Czochralski Process. Is there any consensus on whether it is a process or a method?

As many of you know, I generally don't like naming individuals in plaques because the plaque is supposed to honor the technological achievement, not the person. However, in this case the achievement has become eponymous with the person, so I have no problem with it.

For the average, non-engineer passerby, I really like the story about how he accidentally made the discovery. I think the citation could also benefit from describing more of the applications and why this is so important.
