Jack W. Ekin

National Institute of Standards and Technology - Boulder
Award Recipient
For significant and sustained contributions in the characterization of superconducting materials, in particular:
  • for his pioneering work in the study of strain scaling of the pinning forc in practical superconductors,
  • for his insightful postulation of a unified (strain, temperature and magnetic field) scaling law,
  • for his discovery of the method of making practical low-resistivity electrical contacts to high-Tc oxide superconductors, which is now the prevailing contact method for HTS materials,
  • for authoring the book entitled "Experimental Techniques for Low Temperature Measurements", which has become the standard reference book for electrical measurements at cryogenic temperatures.
