Evangelos Trifon Laskaris

General Electric Global Research Center
Award Recipient
For pioneering contributions to the design and construction of superconducting magnets for magnetic resonance imaging systems, and continued efforts to increase affordability and penetration of MRI equipment to underserved regions of the world, in particular, 
  • for his pioneering leadership in designs and technologies that resulted in commercial production of MRI magnets with reduced fringe field, improved patient comfort and higher image quality.
  • for his effort to produce the first cryogen-free conduction cooled superconducting magnet for MRI systems, 
  • for his pioneering contributions in the development of superconducting rotating machines for power generation including  a 20-MVA utility-type generator, and a 20-MW high-power-density generator for the U.S. Air Force.
