Dan Prober received the IEEE Council on Superconductivity award for 2018.
The award given in recognition of his continuing and significant contributions in the field of superconductive electronics, in particular:
- for pioneering work on SIS quasiparticle mixers, including the first demonstration of detector sensitivity approaching the quantum limit;
- for inventing the diffusion-cooled hot electron bolometer, a high sensitivity and large-bandwidth superconducting heterodyne mixer;
- for advancements in nanofabrication that have been used to develop ultra-sensitive devices based on superconducting nanostructures; and
- for fundamental studies of noise in mesoscopic superconducting systems, which have improved our understanding of the sensitivity limits of superconducting devices.
