Harold Weinstock received his BA in physics from Temple Universtiy in 1956
and six years later, his PhD from Cornell University. His first academic
appointment was as an Assistant Professor at Michigan State University and
moved to Illinois Institute of Techonolgy three years later as an Associate
Professor. In 1973 he was promoted to Professor of Physics and in 1975 he
was elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
Weinstock's career has centered around superconductivity. He has published
over 100 scientific articles and has edited 11 books, mostly on superconductivity.
During a sabbatical at the Naval Research Laboratory in 1979, Weinstock
launched a program in the use of Superconducting Quantum Interference
Devices (SQUIDs) for non-destructive evaluation.
In 1986, he left IIT to take a position at the Air Force Office of Sponsored
Research where he managed programs in electronics and electronic materials
that relate to superconductivity, magnetism, negative index materials and
nanostructures. Weinstock was selected as an Air Force Research Laboratory
Fellow in 2001.
