Born medal recipients
Professor Max Klein
University of Liverpool
For fundamental experimental contributions to our understanding of the structure of protons using Deep Inelastic Scattering
Professor Martin B. Plenio
Universität Ulm / Imperial College London
For his ground-breaking contributions to the theory of entanglement and its applications which have stimulated and guided the development of practical realisations of quantum information processing and the control of quantum dynamics.
Professor Phillip Woodruff
University of Warwick
For his pioneering work in the development of experimental techniques for quantitative surface structure determination and their use in providing new insights into a range of surface phenomena.
Professor Simon White
Max-Planck Institute for Astrophysics
For his contributions to cosmology, galaxy development and the theory of Lambda Cold Dark Matter.
Professor Robin Devenish
For his key role in determining the structure function of the proton and thereby extracting quark and gluon density distributions, which has led to substantial progress in the understanding of quantum chromodynamics.
Professor Hagen Kleinert
Freie Universität Berlin
For his outstanding theoretical contributions to a wide range of fields, including condensed matter physics, quantum field theory and statistical physics.
Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology, Durham University
For his pioneering work in the understanding of the strong interaction, and particularly for his theoretical work on the internal structure of the proton.
Technische Universität Berlin
For his excellent scientific contributions concerning the development, the understanding and the application of semiconductor nanostructures.
Queen's University Belfast
For his contributions to materials physics, in particular the structure and thermodynamics of interfaces.
University of Bristol
For his outstanding contributions to the study of quarks and leptons, in particular in experiments carried out at DESY, and for his visionary leadership of particle physics.
Professor Siegfried Dietrich
Max Plank Institute for Metals Research
Professor Dietrich did very pioneering research in the area of surface critical phenomena, extending the field-theoretical version of renormalisation group theory to anisotropic and inhomogeneous situations as encountered at free surfaces and interfaces.
