Jeffrey Eldred was recently awarded the NPSS Graduate Scholarship Award from the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society. The award recognizes contributions to the fields of nuclear and plasma sciences. Up to four awards are made annually of $1,500 and a one-year paid membership to NPSS.
Eldred is a Ph.D. candidate at Indiana University Bloomington in the Department of Physics and the Joint University-Fermilab Doctoral Program in Accelerator Physics and Technology. He studies under the joint supervision of Professor Shyh-Yuan Lee and Fermilab scientist Robert Zwaska.
Eldred researches issues concerning the accumulation and stability of intense, high-energy particle beams, including studies of the electron cloud in Fermilab synchrotrons and the slip stacking technique.
