Award Recipient
For significant and sustained contribution in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity, in particular:
  • for the invention of the Tore Supra  conductor and for his major role in the commissioning of the Tore Supra superconducting magnet system at CEA–Cadarache, which has been in operation for more than 20 years,
  • for his involvement in the development of 40 kA dual channel niobium-tin cable in conduit, a new concept which has been selected  for use in ITER, the International Tokamak Experimental Reactor, and, 
  • for playing a major role in demonstrating that superconductivity and fusion are compatible technologies.
