René Flükiger

University of Geneva
Award Recipient

For outstanding and sustained contributions in the field of superconducting materials and conductors; in particular:

  • for his early seminal work on the effect of atomic ordering on the electronic properties of A15 compounds and his contribution to the phase diagram of Nb3Sn
  • for proposing the unique link between materials science and practical conductor engineering that led to the decisive enhancement of the critical currents in Nb3Sn wires in view of NMR applications at very high magnetic fields
  • for his significant research on high temperature superconductors, in particular Bi,Pb-2223
  • for his developments in MgB2, and
  • for training generations of students and young researchers in his laboratory at the University of Geneva
