Melville, NY, May 14, 2010 — American Institute of Physics (AIP) and the American Physical Society (APS) named Dr. David K. Christen as the new Editor of Virtual Journal of Applications of Superconductivity. Dr. Christen is currently Group Leader of the Superconductive & Energy Efficient Materials Group at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. Dr. Christen was also a recipient of the "Nano-50 Award" by Nanotech Briefs magazine in 2006. The award recognized “the top 50 technologies, innovators, and products that have significantly impacted, or will impact, the state of the art in nanotechnology.” AIP and APS would like to extend a warm welcome to him along with thanks for his willingness to serve the applied superconductivity community in his new role as Editor.

Dr. Christen succeeds Dr. John R. Clem, who as the founding editor of Virtual Journal of Applications of Superconductivity (VJAS), was at the helm of the journal from 2001 through April 2010.
