Herman ten Kate (Dutch, born in 1955) is, since August 2021, Professor Emeritus at the University of Twente where he was trained, and started his scientific carrier in 1980; since 1997 occupying the chair for Industrial Applications of Superconductivity.
In addition he worked from 1996 until retirement in April 2020 as Magnet System Project Leader of the ATLAS Experiment at CERN-Genève, comprising the world’s largest operational superconducting magnet of three huge toroids and a solenoid. With his team he supported other detector magnet developments with coordinated R&D for proposed particle physics experiments. He continued his work at CERN as honorable member of the Experimental Physics Department.
Expert on superconductor and superconductivity applications, in particular super-conducting magnet systems with more than 40 years of professional experience.
