Arthur Brooks, an engineer at the U.S. Department of Energy's Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory , is this year's PPPL Distinguished Engineering Fellow. In November, he was honored during a ceremony and reception at the laboratory.
The PPPL recognized Brooks for "outstanding engineering accomplishments in the areas of electromagnetic, thermal-hydraulic and structural analysis for numerous experimental devices and design studies," including the Tokamak Fusion Test Reactor, the Tokamak Physics Experiment and the National Spherical Torus Experiment. He also was cited for pioneering the development of electromagnetic codes that were pivotal in the design of the National Compact Stellarator Experiment.
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 staff, as well as engineering and scientific staff, for their accomplishments. Fellows receive one-time gifts of $5,000 and qualify for priority in regard to their research and engineering programs.
