Abstract:
Dr. Paul Barnes, an Air Force Research Lab scientist, has been selected as the winner of a 2009 Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics, or STEM, award. Dr. Barnes has received the John L. McLucas Basic Research STEM Award for of his outstanding scientific achievements in superconducting materials.

AF Research Lab scientist wins award for groundbreaking research

Posted on August 19th, 2009

Superconductors are responsible for carrying electric currents without any loss. Dr. Barnes' research explored new and innovative ways to make more advanced superconductors through the use of nanotechnology. Electric power applications using these advanced superconductors are more compact, lightweight and efficient. Lighter and smaller superconductoring power systems are beneficial because they reduce the load on aircraft and weapon systems.

"The AFRL Propulsion Directorate is proud to have Dr. Barnes leading the way in the invention and application of superconductors for improvement of current and next-generation weapon systems," said Dr. Alan Garscadden, chief scientist in the AFRL Propulsion Directorate. "His superior technical skills, prolific publication record, involvement and leadership are tremendous assets to the U.S. Air Force."

"It's a great research team to be working with at the Air Force Research Laboratory and Air Force Office of Scientific Research," said Dr. Barnes. "I'm fortunate to be surrounded by talented people where we are afforded the opportunity to make a difference for the future of our country."
