Frank Johnson

CTO at Niron Magnetics, Inc.

Minneapolis, Minnesota

I am a materials scientist with experience leading global, multidisciplinary teams. My work has focused on the development of magnetic materials for power generation, distribution, and conversion technologies. These include amorphous, nanocrystalline, and crystalline soft magnetic materials for inductors, transformers, and electrical machine laminates; sintered and composite permanent magnets with reduced rare earth content; and novel magnetocaloric alloys for magnetic refrigeration applications. I have acted as Prinicipal Investigator on three federal R&D contracts and have been a key technical participant in several others.
