CBB Ph.D. Student Ryan Porter Wins Young Investigator Prize at SRF '19

As CBB Ph.D student Ryan Porter advances his research towards triniobium-tin cavities at Cornell, he is being recognized for his work in the field.
This month, Ryan was awarded the Young Investigator Prize at the SRF '19 conference in Dresden. Ryan was selected based on his research and talk at the conference on "Field Limitations in Nb3Sn Cavities". 

The Young Investigator Prize for the best talk is quite competitive. First, only a select few speakers are invited to talk at the conference, and only two prizes for the best oral presentation are given. 

The criteria for which the winners are selected are based on:

  • Relevance and impact of the scientific work,
  • Novelty and quality of the scientific work,
  • Quality of the poster and oral presentation,
  • Interaction and professionalism towards the IPC.

The annual SRF conference held in 2019 in Dresden, Germany, serves as the premier gathering of superconducting RF accelerator experts from around the world to share their research and progress on accelerator projects.Ryan is in his fourth year of graduate studies at Cornell University. He works in the SRF group under the supervision of Professor Matthias Liepe.

Congratulations Ryan!
