Scott Best

Scott Best received his PhD in Electrical Engineering in 1996 from the University of Utah as a member of the Air Force Thermionic Engineering Research (AFTER) program, which provided him with rigorous theoretical and experimental experience in Vacuum Electronics; Plasma Physics; RF, Microwave, and Millimeter-Wave Engineering; Electromagnetics; Guided Wave Theory; and Antennas.  All of this knowledge is fundamentally required to successfully design, fabricate, validate, and manufacture a vacuum tube, known today as a Vacuum Electronic Device (VED).  This knowledge has made it possible for Dr. Best to work seamlessly across numerous government and industry applications for the past 4-decades.  Dr. Best founded SiberSci, LLC ( in January 2013, which provides Electromagnetic Engineering Services to clients.
