Dr. Neil Morley Noted for Excellence in Fusion Engineering
September 12, 2005
The Fusion Power Associates Board of Directors has selected Dr. Neil Morley of UCLA to receive its 2005 Excellence in Fusion Engineering Award. These Awards, in memory of Prof. David J. Rose of MIT, have been presented since 1987 to individuals in the early part of their careers (maximum age 42) who have shown both technical accomplishment and potential for becoming exceptionally influential leaders in the fusion field.
In selecting Dr. Morley, the Board recognizes his outstanding technical contributions to fusion development in areas such as high heat flux components, liquid walls and MHD fluid flow and heat transfer. The Board also recognizes his leadership qualities in such areas as the US program for the ITER Test Blanket Module and the liquid surface divertor module on the NSTX facility at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory.
The Award will be presented at the FPA Annual Meeting and Symposium in Washington, DC on October 11. Details of that meeting are also posted on the FPA web site.
