William B. Sampson

Brookhaven National Laboratory
Award Recipient
For significant and sustained contribution in the field of large scale applications of superconductivity, in particular:
  • for designing some of the first superconducting magnets with magnetic fields exceeding 10 Tesla,
  • for pioneering the development of superconducting accelerator magnets using "cosine theta" windings,
  • for designing and building one of the earliest 6 Tesla wiggler magnets used in the Brookhaven National Laboratory National Synchrotron Light Source, and,
  • for pioneering development of HTS magnets capable of operating in high radiation environments and for possible use in future accelerator applications.
