Lifetime Achievement Awards

A special aspect of this workshop is that we recognize leading members of our community by naming an asteroid after them. These individuals have made substantial contributions over the course of their career and continue to be active leaders in our field.

These asteroids were discovered by Alain Maury and his colleagues at the OCA-DLR Asteroid Survey at Caussols. We thank them for the gift of these asteroids. The official citations, which are registered with the Minor Planet Center, are found below.

Barry Burke, CCD Designer Extraordinaire # 20405 (1998 QP6)

Barry Burke (b. 1941), of MIT Lincoln Laboratory, has spent his career designing many of the world's best CCD sensors, including the 2K*4K devices that are used in many of the leading ground-based observatories and the arrays for the LINEAR Project that has discovered the most asteroids to date. His designs include orthogonal transfer, anti-blooming, electronic shutter and many of the lowest noise amplifiers ever made.

Gert Finger, IR Detector Meister # 21369 (1997 NO4)

Gert Finger (b. 1951), of the European Southern Observatory, applies his ingenuity in detector characterization and optimization to develop the highest quality infrared systems for astronomy. He uses his world-leading expertise to continually set new standards for "lowest noise" performance, and freely shares his knowledge with observatories and manufacturers worldwide.

Alan Hoffman, IR Detector Pioneer # 20259 (1998 FV10)

Alan Hoffman (b. 1948) has led the development of infrared detectors at Raytheon Vision Systems, whose InSb and HgCdTe detectors are in state-of-the-art instrumentation at major ground and space observatories. He has shared his expertise by training a generation of scientists and engineers via his IR detector course, which he has taught for the past 11 years.

Michael Lesser, Dr. CCD Quantum Efficiency # 20399 (1998 OO)

Michael Lesser (b. 1960), of University of Arizona Steward Observatory, is best known for his pioneering work in high quantum efficiency CCDs. His techniques for thinning, backside passivation and anti-reflection coating have been key to the high performance achieved in sensors made for the Hubble Space Telescope and many ground-based observatories.

SDW2005 Award Recipients

At the end of every Scientific Detector Workshop, the Scientific Organizing Committee selects those participants who have used their unique "faculties" to contribute to our meeting. With these awards we recognize scientific insight, a love of the oral spotlight, and the biggest array that views the night. We applaud these individuals for their talents.

List of Participants

This list of participants includes all persons who attended the Scientific Detector Workshop in Taormina, Italy during 19-25 June, 2005. We list the affiliations and E-mail addresses of the participants at the time of publication of the proceedings so that the most recent contact information is available to readers. Note that a few of these affiliations do not match the affiliations listed in the papers since some of our itinerant community have changed employers between attendance at the workshop and the publication of the proceedings.
