PAB Group Prize Winners
For Outstanding Professional Contributions
To Ian Gardner for his many innovative contributions to the physics and engineering of high-power proton accelerators and beams - and in particular for his development of RF systems for spallation neutron sources, for his leadership in design, delivery and operation of successful solutions for NIMROD, ISIS, ESS and other projects, and for his significant contributions to steering the development of major national and international accelerator facilities.
Prof Neil Marks
For his many innovative contributions to the physics and technology of magnet systems for particle accelerators and beam lines.
Neil is widely known both in the UK and overseas and the official citation mentioned a whole series of projects on which he has had major impact, including SRS, ESRF, Diamond, ALICE and EMMA. In addition he ran the Cockcroft Institute postgraduate training programme and he himself has also lectured frequently at both the CERN and Joint Universities Accelerator Schools.
