The many honors he received included the Lenin Prize (1984), Academician (1997) and the Hannes Alfven
Prize of the European Physical Society (2001).
First theorized by Nobel laureate Hannes Alfven
in 1942, the waves could carry energy several hundred thousand kilometers from the surface.
They thought they were on the right track when, in 1942, Swedish physicist Hannes Alfven
predicted the existence of waves in magnetized plasma.
A phenomenon called critical ionization velocity, first proposed by Nobel laureate Hannes Alfven
[see "Dean of the Plasma Dissidents," The World & I, May 1988, p.
Thirty years ago, writing under the pseudonym Olof Johannesson, the Swedish nobel laureate in physics Hannes Alfven
authored a novella variously entitled The Tale of the Big Computer and The End of Man?
The Hannes Alfven
Prize has been awarded annually since 2000 by the European Physical Society (EPS) for Outstanding Contributions to Plasma Physics.
This phenomenon, called the critical ionization velocity, can help explain the formation of the solar system; it was first suggested by Hannes Alfven
, a Nobel-winning plasma physicist.
The Plasma Physics Division of the European Physical Society has announced the award of the 2006 Hannes Alfven
Prize to Dr.
In a 1954 book about the formation of planetary systems, Hannes Alfven
hypothesized that gas atoms having no electric charge can ionize -- acquire an electric charge -- by simply speeding through space.
The Board of the Plasma Physics Division of the European Physical Society (EPS) has awarded the 2005 Hannes Alfven
prize to Professor Malcolm G.
The term "ambiplasma' was invented about 30 years ago by the Swedish physicist Hannes Alfven
, who proposed that the universe began as an ambiplasma, a theory no longer very popular.
Rosenbluth has been awarded the 2002 Hannes Alfven
Prize of the Plasma Physics Division of the European Physical Society (EPS) "for his seminal theoretical contributions since the earliest days of fusion research in virtually all aspects of fusion plasma sciences which now form the basis of modern plasma physics.
