IEEE UFFC Rayleigh Award

Rayleigh Award

The Rayleigh Award represents the highest honor for achievement within the UFFC Society in the field of Ultrasonics. The achievement may be in technical innovations, research, education, publications and related professional endeavors. Typically, the recipient will have demonstrated these accomplishments over a sustained period of time.

Moises Levy: Major Contributions

  • Conducted systematic ultrasonic investigations of superconducting materials, rare earth metals and iron-nickel film alloys
  • First investigations of the properties of type I and Type II superconductors, including High Tc superconductors using bulk wave ultrasonics
  • First complete phase diagram of the heavy Fermion superconductor UPt3 determined from ultrasonic velocity measurements
  • First investigations of surface acoustic waves (SAWs)to study several types of superconducting amorphous films, granular films, and High Tc films
