Daniel F. Leroy

Award Recipient

For significant and sustained contributions in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity, in particular:

  • for his role in the design, specification, procurement, test and acceptance of 1200 tons of niobium titanium conductors that have been completed within budget and in time to be used in the manufacturing of the magnets for the Large Hadron Collider (LHC)
  • for employing his broad competences in material sciences, magnetic, mechanical and cryogenics engineering, in the innovative design and construction of the most successful superconducting accelerator magnet models paving the way to the LHC as well as in other relevant aspects of accelerator physics, in many CERN projects, and,
  • for educating and training many generations of young researchers at CERN.
