The IEEE Council on Superconductivity sponsors the Van Duzer Prize, awarded to the best contributed paper published in IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity during each volume year.

The award is restricted to regular submissions to the IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity to encourage authors to prepare well written and comprehensive contributions which may have exceptional archival values and are likely to be cited frequently by other authors. Papers submitted for publication through scientific conference special issues are not eligible.

Candidates for the Prize may be nominated by the Editors of the Transactions and judged by the Editor in Chief. Papers are scored on the following criteria:

  1. Expectation that the paper will be highly cited by future authors,
  2. Technical excellence of the work described, and
  3. Completeness of the paper as an archival record of a finished body of research.

The recipients are announced in the year following the volume year in which the paper appears. Photos of the recipients will be featured in the front of the Transactions issue containing the announcement.


Prize Description

The Van Duzer Prize consists of a certificate and an honorarium of $1,000, funded by the Council on Superconductivity. For papers with multiple authors, the honorarium is divided equally among the authors. When possible, the recipients receive their certificate and honorarium at a scientific conference such as the Applied Superconductivity Conference or Magnet Technology Conference during an award ceremony sponsored by the Council on Superconductivity.

Prize Background

The award is named in honor of Professor Theodore Van Duzer, founding Editor-in-Chief of IEEE Transactions on Applied Superconductivity. Professor Van Duzer (M'60-SM'75-F'77-LF'93) received the Ph.D. degree from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1960. He has been on the faculty of the Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Sciences, University of California, Berkeley, since 1961. He is co-author of two textbooks, Principles of Superconductive Devices and Circuits, and Fields and Waves in Communication Electronics, and has published widely in the research literature on superconductor electronics. His current research interests focus on Josephson devices and multi-gigahertz digital superconductor circuits, including hybrids with cryogenic semiconductor components. Dr. Van Duzer is a Life Fellow of the IEEE and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Engineering.
