Quantum Design Co-Founder Dr. Michael Simmonds Receives 2016 IEEE Award
- For his pioneering work in developing the revolutionary MPMS3 SQUID-VSM (SQUID based-Vibrating Sample Magnetometer).
- For his design of a double-balanced SQUID which uses a symmetrical geometry to decouple the modulation and input coils.
- For devising multiple methods of applying an AC bias to DC SQUIDs to greatly reduce low frequency noise, enabling their use in a wide variety of applications.
Dr. Simmonds, a long time resident of Bozeman Montana, donated the cash award to the Children's Museum of Bozeman. For more information about the IEEE Award, click here.
