IEEE SPECTRUM reports on the invention of the SQUID at the Ford Motor Company 50 years ago

The story behind the invention of the Superconducting Quantum Interference Device (SQUID) by a team of scientists at the Scientific Laboratory of the Ford Motor Co. Dearborn MI, has been described a number of times in the past by members of the team that were involved in the discovery.  However, an author who was not involved in the event has now prepared an account of this event, which is presented from the point of view of an “outsider” and treats the story as history. This article has been posted on the IEEE SPECTRUM website, and appeared in print in the November 2014 issue of IEEE SPECTRUM magazine. Read more.

Student Support

The IEEE Council on Superconductivity (CSC) is committed to promoting students and recent graduates in the field of superconductivity. Student assistance for attending conferences (registration and travel stipends), an annual fellowship, and multiple student networking & professional development events are offered. Details are found here.
