NSCL Student Wins APS Beam Physics Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award

Eduard Pozdeyev was awarded the 2005 Beam Physics Outstanding Doctoral Thesis Award of the American Physical Society (APS) for his Ph.D. thesis. This award recognizes research of outstanding quality and achievement in beam physics and engineering.

For his thesis research at NSCL, Eduard developed a multi-particle code to simulate intense beam in isochronous accelerators. Based on his simulations he designed, assembled and commissioned SIR, a small-scale, low-energy isochronous storage ring. This ring provides the opportunity to perform accurate experiments on space-charge effects that are difficult to assess in detail in large-scale accelerators.
