Congratulations Dr. Nathan Majernik on his Staff Scientist position at the Facility for Advanced Accelerator Experimental Tests at SLAC. More information on FACET-II
Prof. Jamie Rosenzweig, regarded as the father of the non-linear “blowout” interaction regime, was awarded 2023 EPS Hannes Alfvén Prize
Congratulations David Muller. Elected AAAS Fellow for his contributions to the field of electron microscopy.
s for so many people, 2022 has been a year of celebrating togetherness in CBB. For the first time since 2019, CBB met in person for our annual meeting and Symposium.  Gathered on the lovely UCLA campus, we shared our ideas, built relationships, and communed as a team.  We stayed safe, thanks to masking and lots of time outdoors, and it felt very, very good to be together again.
The proposed invention represents novel methods for forming ordered, cubic β-ZrNb alloyed surfaces that yield high critical temperatures in the theoretical limit and improved superconducting properties desirable for superconducting radio-frequency (SRF) and quantum computing applications.
CBB is pleased to announce the graduation of  PhD Nathan Sitaraman, whose thesis is “SRF Theory Work on SRF Materials” Congratulations Dr. Sitaraman!
Congratulations to new PhD Thomas Oseroff whose thesis is, “Advancing a superconducting sample host cavity and its application for studying proximity-coupled normal layers in strong microwave fields”. Congratulations Dr. Oseroff!
