September 28, 2017 (PA40). During the EUCAS-2017 Award Ceremony on September 18, 2017, the 2017 ESAS Award for Excellence in Applied Superconductivity was bestowed upon Dr. Ronny Stolz from the Leibniz Institute of Photonic Technology (IPHT), Jena, Germany. He earned this award in recognition of his outstanding contributions in developing advanced Superconducting Quantum Interference Detector (SQUID) systems. Novel instruments evolved like in transient electromagnetic or airborne full tensor gradiometry, which offer unique properties and extreme sensitivity. Ronny Stolz gained international broad recognition through his thorough understanding of complex theoretical and practical issues, and his innovative thinking, which enabled the development, perfecting, and practical field implementation of geomagnetic exploration of mineral ores using SQUID magnetometry.
