2018 Excellence in Fusion Engineering Awards will be presented to Chad Parish (ORNL) and to Wayne Solomon (General Atomics).
Chad Parish is recognized for "your many scientific contributions to advance microstructural characteristics of materials for fusion energy applications, including the surface morphology evolution of tungsten, and the productive collaborations you have established with other institutions in this important field of research".
Wayne Solomon is recognized for "your development of unique diagnostic capabilities and pioneering contributions towards the understanding of momentum transport and intrinsic rotation generation, and discovery of experimental access to the super H-mode regime, and for your leadership as the Deputy Director of the DIII-D National Fusion Program".
It is planned to present the awards at Fusion Power Associated 39th annual meeting and symposium, December 4-5 in Washington, DC. A list of previous recipients and information on the annual meeting is posted at http://fusionpower.org.
