Reiman, McCune honored for contributions at PPPL
Posted November 29, 2001; 01:57 p.m.
Allan Reiman and Douglas McCune, researchers at the Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory , are this year's PPPL Distinguished Research and Engineering Fellows, respectively.
Reiman, a physicist at the PPPL, was cited for his numerous contributions in diverse topics in plasma physics, including the theory of three-dimensional plasmas found in fusion devices called stellarators, and for his leadership in developing innovative approaches to the stabilization of plasmas in the design of the National Compact Stellarator Experiment.
McCune, co-head of the laboratory's computational plasma physics group, was honored for seminal contributions to computational plasma physics, particularly in the area of high-level data analysis in fusion experiments, and for his more recent work in establishing and leading the group, which has been vital to the development of modern computational physics and collaborative data analysis capability for both the PPPL and the fusion energy science community.
The Distinguished Research and Engineering Fellow Program, funded by the U.S. Department of Energy, was created to recognize members of the laboratory's research and engineering and scientific staff for their accomplishments.
