USPAS Prizes for Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology Con’t
Awarded to John Lewellen, Argonne National Laboratory
For his contributions to high-brightness electron beam source de- sign, in particular his seminal work on novel cavity geometries, field-emission cathode gating, and test facility design construction and operation.
John Lewellen received his Bachelor’s degree in Physics from Case Western Reserve University in 1991, and his Ph.D. in Ap- plied Physics from Stanford University in 1996. Lewellen then went to the Advanced Photon Source at Argonne National Labora- tory, where he worked on the APS SASE-FEL project. Lewellen was a founding member of the Argonne Department of Defense Project Office, where he has served as the Beam Physics leader. In 2007, Dr. Lewellen accepted a Research Associate Professor position at the Naval Postgraduate School, in Monterey, CA, as a joint appointment. His work there entails the development and construction of a high-brightness beam research facility.
