IEEE COUNCIL ON SUPERCONDUCTIVITY AWARD RECIPIENTS 2016

 
 
THE IEEE AWARD FOR CONTINUING AND SIGNIFICANT CONTRIBUTIONS TO
THE FIELD OF APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY
(SMALL-SCALE APPLICATIONS)
 
michael simmonds
MICHAEL SIMMONDS
Quantum Design
 

For continuing and significant contributions in the field of SQUID-based instrumentation, in particular:

  • for pioneering work in developing the revolutionary MPMS3 SQUID-VSM (Vibrating Sample Magnetometer),
  • for design of a double-balanced SQUID which uses a symmetrical geometry to decouple the modulation and input coils, and
  • for devising multiple methods of applying an AC bias to DC SQUIDs to greatly reduce low-frequency noise, enabling their use in a wide variety of applications.

Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory
 
For continuing and significant contributions in the field of 
large-scale applications of superconductivity, in particular:
  • for key contributions to the design, fabrication and successful testing of multiple record high field accelerator magnets, including the record Cos(θ) magnet D20, the record common coil RD3B and the record block magnets HD1 and HD2,
  • for innovations in high field accelerator magnet structures that has enabled the use of strain-sensitive Nb3Sn in high-field accelerator magnets, and
  • for major contributions to modern high-field magnet design and, in particular, to the formulation and systematic implementation of integrated design processes that incorporate 3D magnetic, structural and CAD integration.
 

THE IEEE DR. JAMES WONG AWARD FOR CONTINUING AND SIGNIFICANT
CONTRIBUTIONS TO APPLIED SUPERCONDUCTIVITY MATERIALS TECHNOLOGY
 
Edward Ted Collings
EDWARD W. “Ted” COLLINGS
The Ohio State University
 
For continuing and significant contributions in the field of superconducting materials research, in  particular,
  • for showing that proximity effect coupling between closely spaced fine filaments in multifilamentary NbTi/Cu composites could be suppressed by the addition of Mn to the Cu matrix,
  • for leading the development of NbTi and Nb3Sn Rutherford cables in which cores of selected materials and widths were introduced to control interstrand contact and coupling magnetization,
  • for leading a group that developed the world's first HTS Rutherford cable based on Bi:2212/Ag and that went on to produce long lengths of continuously melt processed Nb3Al strand and hence Nb3Al Rutherford cable, and
  • for contributions to the understanding and development of practical MgB2 conductors.
