The IEEE Council on Superconductivity Awards in the Field of Applied Superconductivity (2013)
The IEEE Award for Continuing and Significant Contributions in the Field of Applied Superconductivity
Stony Brook University
For significant and sustained contributions in the field of superconductor digital electronic technology, in particular:
- for playing a major role in the invention and development of Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) digital logic family based on processing of single flux quanta in Josephson junction circuits,
- for his work in developing superconductor analog to digital and digital to analog converters,
- for his effort in development and experimental demonstration of physically reversible superconducting circuits with ultimately low power dissipation, and,
- for mentoring a significant number of the current generation of superconductor digital circuit designers.
Plasma Science and Fusion Center Massachusetts Institute of Technology
For continuing and significant contributions in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity, in particular,
- for his contributions to numerous magnet systems for fusion energy, magnetic levitation, energy storage, power generation and transmission, magnetic separation, high energy and nuclear physics, medical applications, and,
- for his contributions as the U. S. Principal Investigator for the International Reactor (ITER) project which resulted in the design, fabrication and testing of the Central Solenoid Model Coil, then the world's largest and most powerful pulsed superconducting magnet.
CERN and University of Twente
For continuous and significant contributions in the field of Large Scale Applications of Superconductivity, in particular for:
- his pioneering work in the construction of the first full-size accelerator dipole magnet employing Nb3Sn wire, operating above 11 tesla;
- his technical and managerial leadership in the design, construction, commissioning and operation of the ATLAS Superconducting Magnet System, and,
- training numerous young engineers and scientists on technical superconductors and application in magnet systems.
Commissariat à l'Energy Atomique et aux Energies Alternatives (CEA)
For sustained service to the applied superconductivity community that has a lasting influence on the advancement of the technology, in particular:
- for promotion and leadership in the development of many large scale superconducting magnet systems, such as Tore-Supra, LHC and ITER, and for directing research for the next generation devices beyond LHCand ITER, and,
- for chairing numerous committees for promoting academic research and organizing workshops related to applied superconductivity and large scale superconducting magnets.
