2017 ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity

2017 ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity

During EUCAS 2017 the ESA Board will present the ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity to “recognize excellence in advancing the knowledge of applied superconductivity over the past five years”.

The ESAS Award for Excellence will be presented during the plenary morning session on Monday, 18. September, 2017.

The 2017 ESAS Award for Excellence Winner is

Dr. Ronny Stolz
Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT)
Jena, Germany

The 2017 ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity will be bestowed to Dr. Ronny Stolz from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT) in Jena to acknowledge his outstanding contributions in developing advanced Superconducting Quantum Interference Detector systems. Novel instruments evolved like in transient electromagnetic or airborne full tensor gradiometry, which offer unique properties and extreme sensitivity. Ronny Stolz gained international broad recognition through his thorough understanding of complex theoretical and practical issues, and his innovative thinking, which enabled the development, perfecting, and practical field implementation of geomagnetic exploration of mineral ores using SQUID magnetometry.
