To recognize a sustained contribution to a scientific subfield, or subfields, using neutron scattering techniques, or a sustained contribution to the development of neutron scattering techniques. In either case, the primary consideration shall be an enduring impact on science. Preference shall be given to applicants whose work was carried out predominantly in North America.
The prize consists of $2,500, a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient and a travel allowance to attend the corresponding NSSA sponsored American Conference on Neutron Scattering (ACNS) at which the prize is awarded. The recipient will have an invited talk at the corresponding ACNS.
The deadline for nominations will be approximately 6 months prior to the ACNS. (The meetings are usually in June, so the nomination deadline would then be December of the previous year – deadline was Dec. 4, 2017.)
Email the nomination package in PDF format to email@example.com.
The award shall be granted to an individual without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, religion, age, disability or sexual orientation.
For his seminal and sustained contributions to our understanding of soft condensed matter physics using neutron scattering.
For his sustained and foundational contributions which have elucidated the magnetic properties of iron-based superconductors, cuprates, and other correlated electron materials
For seminal studies of the colossal magneto-resistance effect and profound contributions to our understanding of the interplay of magnetism and superconductivity
For pioneering the development of neutron reflectometry and demonstrating its application to magnetic and polymer film systems
For outstanding neutron scattering studies of correlated electron physics in magnets, metals and superconductors, and for science-driven development of neutron scattering techniques
For his pioneering SANS experiments that probe the structure and thermodynamics of polymeric fluids and block copolymers.
For his outstanding neutron scattering studies of the charge and spin ordering in the high Tc cuprates and related materials
