171. 2016 Thomson Medal and prize of the Institute of Physics (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Jeremy Hutson has changed the way we think about intermolecular forces and pioneered the theory of ultracold molecules and their collisions. He has made major contributions to both molecule formation in ultracold atomic gases and molecule cooling in traps. In molecule formation, Hutson has developed new theoretical techniques to model magnetoassociation and to understand the properties of the molecules formed, which have been crucial in recent experiments to create molecular quantum...

174. 2016 Franklin Medal and prize of the Institute of Physics (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Raymond E. Goldstein, University of Cambridge and Churchill College Cambridge, for revealing the physical basis for fluid motion in and around active cells and its importance for the evolution of multicellularity, cell differentiation, and the synchronicity of eukaryotic flagella. He showed that the transition, from irregular collections of identical cells to spherical colonies with internal germ cells and external somatic cells driving flow, occurs at exactly the colony size at ...

176. 2010 Thomson medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
For her contributions to the development of the world's only positronium beam and its use to probe the properties of atoms and molecules. She has extensively exploited the unique properties of positronium (uncharged and twice the mass of an electron) to probe the properties of atoms and molecules, performing the first measurements of both total positronium collision cross sections (using argon) and positronium break-up (using helium). Her work on positron collision physics included ...

177. 2010 Rutherford medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
For establishing the existence of nuclear configurations analogous to molecules and demonstrating the existence of nucleon-clustering in key light nuclei, a long-standing issue in the field. Prof Freer has resolved this issue by providing the definitive evidence that there is such a cluster structure visible in excited states of key light nuclei. In the limiting case of highly neutron-rich nuclei near the neutron drip-line, Prof Freer has shown that the “valence neutrons''.

178. 2010 Hoyle medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
For his major contributions to the development of the now widely accepted cold dark matter model by using cosmological simulations, novel methods for calculating the physics of galaxy formation and analysis of galaxy surveys. Frenk is a pre-eminent cosmologist who, through the pioneering use of cosmological simulations, has made major contributions to the development of the now widely accepted cold dark matter model of cosmology. Together with work on the structure of dark matter halos (the...

179. 2010 Franklin medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
For the application of physical principles to the development of elegant molecular sorting devices, for providing new insights into the organising principles of cells and for his primary contributions to a new generation of theories of how the inner ear works. Professor Thomas Duke first worked on DNA separation technology, providing a theoretical elucidation of the microscopic dynamics underlying the capillary electrophoresis methods. Duke was one of the proponents of the concept of '...

180. 2010 Appleton medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
For his important contributions to the detection and attribution of human influence on climate and quantifying uncertainty in climate predictions. Dr Allen is an outstanding Climate Physicist who has made major advances in the understanding and quantification of the role of uncertainty in predictions of future climate change, and has developed powerful techniques for detecting signs of climate change in observational data. Advanced climate models are extremely complex nonlinear systems and ...
