On Feb. 25, we honored employees for their technological innovations in a celebration of inventors, creators and entrepreneurs at Fermilab’s annual Inventor Recognition Awards Ceremony. As part of a celebration, which was dedicated to Fermilab pioneer Alvin Tollestrup, we recognized nine Fermilab inventors who earned patents in 2020, 25 who submitted disclosures, and several unsung heroes.
A physicist making great advances in particle detector technology, Estrada is recognized by the American Physical Society Division of Particles and Fields for his creation and development of novel applications for CCD technology that probe wide-ranging areas of particle physics, including cosmology, dark matter searches, neutrino detection and quantum imaging.
Please join us on Thursday, Feb. 25, 2-3 p.m. for a brief online ceremony celebrating innovation at Fermilab and honoring more than 30 individuals who received patents or filed Records of Invention during calendar year 2020. The event is open to all interested employees. Please mark the day and time on your calendar. Zoom meeting information will be emailed to all registered participants prior to the event. Register for the ceremony.
After years of steadily expanding the laboratory’s patent portfolio and working to take accelerator-based technologies beyond the laboratory, I’m thrilled to report that the Fermilab has won the best-in-class DOE Technology Transfer Working Group Award in the Single-Purpose Labs, Plants and Facilities category.
