Ernest Rutherford Medal and Prize recipients
For distinguished contributions to nuclear physics
Professor Philip Walker
University of Surrey
For advances in understanding metastable nuclear states: their origins, properties and applications.
Professor John Simpson
STFC Daresbury Laboratory
For his outstanding leadership in the development of new detector technologies and systems for experimental nuclear physics research within the UK and Europe, and for his seminal contributions to our understanding of the structure of atomic nuclei, especially in revealing new properties of nuclei at the limits of angular momentum, deformation, and stability.
Professor Paul Nolan
University of Liverpool
For his outstanding contributions to Nuclear structure at extremes of angular momentum and his leading role in the development of segmented Germanium detector technology.
Professor Peter A Butler
University of Liverpool
For his outstanding work in the field of experimental nuclear physics and his dynamic contributions to the future direction of the field.
Professor Martin Freer
University of Birmingham
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.
Dr Alan Copestake, Dr Stephen Walley, Mr John Stewart Kiltie, Mr Chris Weston and Mr Brian Griffin
Rolls Royce plc
For the development of a long-life nuclear reactor core for UK submarines.
CCLRC Rutherford Appleton Laboratory
For his contributions to high energy physics as leader of key experiments at CERN investigating CP violation, and as director of particle physics at CCLRC's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory where he has played a key role in reviving accelerator science for particle physics applications in the UK.
