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:
1978-1980: Senior Research Engineer, Magnetics Corp. of America,
1980-1991: Senior Project Engineer, Intermagnetics General Corp. Latham,
1991-1995: Senior Principal Engineer, Gardner Cryogenic, Bethlehem, PA
1995-2002: Program Manager & Chief Engineer, Everson Electric Co.,
2002-2004: President, Advanced Cryogenic Equipment Inc (ACE). Emmaus, PA
President and Chief Scientist, Advanced Magnetic and Cryogenic,
LLC (AMC), Macungie, PA
