Moseley medal recipients

2014
Dr Elizabeth Blackburn
University of Birmingham
For her pioneering experimental work in the field of novel superconductors and magnets using neutrons and X-rays, often in extreme conditions, to elucidate their complex structure and response.


2013
Dr John J L Morton
University College London
For his contributions to experimental quantum control of electron and nuclear spins towards applications in quantum technologies.


2012
Dr Suchitra Sebastian
University of Cambridge
For her important discoveries in frustrated quantum magnets, heavy fermion systems and high temperature semiconductors.


2011
Dr Giovanna Tinetti
University College London
For her work, pioneering the use of infrared, primary transit spectroscopy to characterise the molecular composition of extra solar planets.


2010
Professor Jeremy O’Brien
University of Bristol
For his outstanding contributions to experimental quantum optics and quantum information science and in particular for pioneering the field of integrated quantum photonics.


2009
Dr Matthew Wing
University College London
For his outstanding contributions to the experimental programme of the HERA collider at DESY, the leading experimental facility for studying the detailed sub-structure of the proton. In particular his work has led to a deeper understanding of the strong force and will have important applications to the LHC and future colliders.


2008
Professor Helen Fielding
University College London
For her unique work on the coherent control of electronic and molecular dynamics using ultra-fast lasers. This research is significant for quantum-information studies as well as the possible laser control of chemical reactions.


Medallists - Boys medal and prize

2007
Amalia Patanè
University of Nottingham
For her innovative experimental studies of the quantum behaviour of electrons in novel semiconductor heterostructures.


2006
Karl Krushelnick
Imperial College London
For his contribution to plasma physics through his wide-ranging investigations into the interaction of ultra-intense lasers with matter.


2005
Nigel Hussey
University of Bristol
For his important contributions to the understanding of high temperature superconductors; in particular for making the first observation of the full Fermi surface in a high temperature superconductor.
