Paul L. Richards

University of California – Berkeley (Retired)
Award Recipient
For significant and sustained contributions in the field of superconductor high frequency detectors and mixers, in particular:
  • for pioneering the development of SIS devices as mixers and  detectors  of microwave and millimeter wave radiation  specifically for radio astronomy,
  • for pioneering the use of superconductor transition edge bolometers and arrays of these bolometers with SQUID readout  electronics which have been used for many astronomical applications, and
  • for his many contributions to the mapping of the sky at millimeter wavelengths using superconducting
