Work Experience: 

Dr. Peter Hwang has over 30 years of experience in the area of superconducting magnet and cryogenic system. He has been involved in the design, engineering, and manufacturing for many cryogenics and superconducting magnet systems and components. Prior to joining AMC, he was the president of ACE (Advanced Cryogenic Equipment Inc.). He has successfully designed and built a high field cryogen-free superconducting magnet system for LACARA application. Presently he is a co-investigator for a HTS open MRI magnet system for a NIH SBIR program and a principal investigator of an insulation research project for HTS Bi2212 wire and coil for DOE SBIR program. His work experience includes the following:
