Alvin Tollestrup

Fermilab, Batavia, Illinois
Award Recipient
For significant and sustained contribution in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity with emphasis on magnets for accelerator applications, in particular:
  • for his efforts in leading the pioneering design, testing and commissioning of 1,000 superconducting  magnets into the Tevatron at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory, the 
  • first large scale application of superconductivity, and,
  • for his efforts in applying the technology of superconductivity to all areas of particle physics and for his leadership in the collaboration of applying high temperature superconductors to advanced accelerators such as a  muon collider.
