The Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in the Physical Sciences
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
Directeur de Recherche, CNRS (Centre de RMN à Très Hauts Champs)
Ecole Normale Supérieure de Lyon
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.
The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Prize will be shared among the three recipients and will be awarded to them in person during a mini-conference that will be held in honor of the laureates, on February 28th, 2017.
Coordinators for the year 2016: Professor Yoram Cohen and Professor Amir Goldbourt
