     גרסה עברית 



    The Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in the Physical Sciences, awarded at Tel Aviv University, was established through the generosity of Dr. Raymond and Mrs. Beverly Sackler. The prize is awarded alternatively in the fields of Chemistry and Physics, and is intended to encourage dedication to science, originality and excellence by rewarding outstanding young scientists, under 45 years of age. 
    This year an amount of $100,000 will be presented in the field of Chemistry, in the subject of Magnetic Resonance.
    Tel Aviv University is proud to announce that the 2016 Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize in the Physical Sciences for Chemistry will be awarded to three excellent researchers:


    2016 Laureates


    Professor John Morton

    London Centre for Nanotechnology and Department of Electronic and Electrical Engineering

    UCL (University College London), UK








    John Morton is recognized for his highly novel contributions to quantum information processing, by means of a range of phenomena in magnetic resonance, both NMR and EPR. In addition to the intrinsic interest in these very fundamental processes, this work is likely to have wide-ranging implications to emerging quantum technologies, including quantum computing, information storage and processing.




    Professor Guido Pintacuda

    Institute of Analytical Sciences (High-Field NMR Centre)

    Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon - CNRS - Université Claude Bernard








    Guido Pintacuda is recognized for his elegant methodological advances in solid state NMR spectroscopy, including advances in proton detection, and for insightful applications to challenging biological systems. 




    Professor Charalampos Babis Kalodimos 

    Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, and Biophysics

    University of Minnesota








    Babis Kalodimos is recognized for beautifully detailed characterizations of structure, function, and dynamics in a number of challenging and important biological systems through solution NMR spectroscopy.



    Half of the prize will be awarded to Professor John Morton and the other half will be shared between Professor Guido Pintacuda and Professor  Babis Kalodimos.


    The prize will be awarded on Tuesday, February 28th, during a mini-symposium which will be held in honor of the laureates, at the auditorium of The Porter School of Environmental Studies.
