Professor William Bertozzi has been chosen as the first recipient of the Mentoring Award of the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society

Billerica, Mass.— October 1, 2008 Professor William Bertozzi, one of Passport Systems’ founders and a director, has been chosen as the first recipient of the Mentoring Award of the Division of Nuclear Physics of the American Physical Society. This award has been bestowed in recognition of the passion and quality of his career at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology mentoring graduate students and young scientists in experimental nuclear physics for over half a century. He has supervised the research of more than fifty graduate students who earned their Ph.D. degrees and are pursuing careers in teaching, research, business, and administration worldwide; twenty have become tenured physics faculty.

Professor Bertozzi continues to be an active contributor in his field. He was a founder of the MIT Bates Linear Accelerator Center where for many years he served as Head of Research Operations. He has served as head of the Experimental Nuclear and High Energy Physics Division of the Department of Physics at MIT. He now serves as head of the Nuclear Interactions Group in the Laboratory for Nuclear Science at MIT. He is a Fellow of the American Physical Society and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Professor Bertozzi brought his expertise and knowledge in nuclear and particle physics to Passport in the form of patents on Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence (NRF), a powerful non-intrusive technology for unambiguously determining the isotopic composition of cargo. At Passport he has been the inventor of several other core technologies, among which are: the use of prompt neutrons from photon induced fission (PNPF) to non-intrusively discover fissionable materials in cargo; EZ-3D™, a unique technology for mapping the effective atomic number (Z) of cargo in containers; and, a novel accelerator concept to be used as part of Passport’s inspection technologies. Professor Bertozzi also serves as the Science Advisor to Passport Systems as well as helping direct product development.
