Richard D. Petrasso, head of the High-Energy-Density Physics (HEDP) Division of the MIT Plasma Science and Fusion Center (PSFC), received the 2013 Edward Teller Medal for his division’s work in inertial confinement fusion and high-energy-density physics.

The Fusion Energy Division of the American Nuclear Society (ANS) presented the award on Sept. 11 at the International Inertial Fusion Science and Applications Conference (IFSA) in Nara, Japan. Petrasso was cited “for pioneering the use of nuclear diagnostics for understanding inertial confinement fusion implosions and high-energy-density physics.”
