Dr. Rainer Meinke - Co-Founder and Chief Technology Officer
Dr. Rainer Meinke is an international expert in the science and application of superconductivity and advanced magnetics.
With over a decade of experience in superconducting magnet design and testing for major science projects, Dr. Meinke co-founded and has led the company's technical developments, which has culminated in a radical new end-to-end process for magnet design and manufacturing that yields magnets with virtually perfect fields.
strategic achievements include a rich IP portfolio, including AML CoilCADTM, the most sophisticated magnet design software ever devised, as well as dozens of breakthrough innovations such as the Double-HelixTM family of magnet technologies.
In a career in physics and engineering that spans more than 30 years, Dr. Meinke
has led some of the world's most advanced accelerator facilities.
As Senior Scientist at the Superconducting Super Collider Laboratory (SSCL), in Dallas Texas, he was the Collider Machine Leader, and was responsible for technical design, budget and schedule of the 20 TeV proton-proton Collider.
Previously, he led the development, build-up and operation of a test facility for superconducting magnets at HERA, in Hamburg, Germany-the first accelerator to employ industrially produced magnets of this kind.
work in physics included development of phenomenological models for elementary particle interactions, and hardware development and experimental data analysis for high-energy physics experiments at different accelerators and laboratories, including construction of the world's largest streamer chamber detector at the European Center for Nuclear Research
has numerous patents related to superconducting systems and has authored over a 100 publications.
accomplishments in creating practical solutions for complex technical problems has been recognized throughout the science community, making him a frequent invited speaker and reviewer for international science conferences and journals.
He received his Ph.D. in high-energy physics from Technical University in Munich, Germany.
