Dear Dr. Selvamanickam:


Congratulations on being named - twice - a recipient of the 2008 Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer by the Federal Laboratory Consortium (FLC). This award recognizes laboratory employees and private collaborators who accomplished outstanding work in transferring technology developed in the Federal laboratory to the commercial marketplace.


In 2008, 28 recipient-teams were recognized among the works of more than 250 Federal Laboratories, research centers, and facilities represented by the congressionally-chartered FLC, indicating a selective process and a contribution of the highest caliber. Your award will be presented to you by the FLC leadership and the Department of Energy's FLC representative at the FLC National Meeting being held May 5-8, 2008, in Portland, Oregon.


In particular, I would like to recognize your successful transfer of the LMOe-HTS technology. The partnership between Oak Ridge National Laboratory and SuperPower, Inc. shows that bringing technologies from the laboratory to the marketplace results in products that have a positive impact in our everyday lives.


I would also like to recognize your contribution toward the development of Second-Generation High Temperature Superconducting Wire. This technology is a revolution in the electric power industry because of its ability to carry 200 times more current than traditional copper wires. The collaboration between Los Alamos National Laboratory and SuperPower, Inc. exemplifies the success of bringing together government and industry to improve the quality of life for all of us.


Your contributions are commendable and reflect well upon you, your colleagues, the supporting Federal Laboratory, as well as the U.S. Department of Energy.
