D. Bruce Montgomery

MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center
Award Recipient

For significant and sustained contributions in the field of superconducting magnet technology, in particular:

  • for the leadership he provided in the development of magnet technology for numerous large scale superconducting application including magnetic confinement fusion, MHD power generation, magnetic levitation and propulsion, magnetic separation, and medical applications
  • for his long service as a technical leader at the MIT Francis Bitter National Magnet Laboratory and later at the Plasma Science and Fusion Center
  • for his authorship of the book entitled "Solenoid Magnet Design: The Magnetic and Mechanical Aspects of Resistive and Superconducting Magnets," which was published in 1969, but has remained a standard reference book for magnet design
