Eleven scientists and a former high school intern were rewarded at a ceremony for inventions they created while pursuing the fundamental research mission of U.S. Department of Energy's Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility. Lukasz Majewski, now a sophomore at Johns Hopkins University, helped develop three inventions during his summer internship at Jefferson Lab. A ceremony was held at 1 p.m. October 30, 1997, in the CEBAF Center Auditorium at Jefferson Lab. The Southeastern Universities Research Association, Inc. (SURA), recently received eight patents for these inventions and will share royalties evenly with the inventors. SURA rewards these scientists $500 for each patent awarded to promote the development of new technology. The potential value is not only to SURA and Jefferson Lab's programs, but also to private industry through technology transfer.
JLab scientists and inventions:
