The IEEE Council on Superconductivity Awards in the Field of Applied Superconductivity (2007)
For significant and sustained contributions in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity, in particular,
- for his leadership of the Magnet and Superconductor Group in the Accelerator Technology Department at CERN where he was responsible for the acquisition of 1232 superconducting dipole magnets and 392 superconducting quadrupole magnets for the Large Hadron Collider which was the largest single acquisition of superconducting devices in the world.
- for his contributions in the design of various earlier superconducting magnet systems such as the ATLAS BT toroid detector at CERN, and,
- for his mentoring and training, while he was at the University of Milan and INFN, of many of the next generation of leaders in the superconducting magnet community.
