For pioneering work on molecular organisation and manipulation on surfaces, particularly in relation to molecular rolling, the formation of nanoporous templates and entropically stabilised molecular tilings.


2011
Professor Andrew Turberfield
University of Oxford
For his seminal contributions to nano-science, in particular, for pioneering the technique of holographic lithography and DNA self-assembly.


2009
Professor Richard Jones
University of Sheffield
For his innovative work characterising polymer surfaces and thin films; and for his more recent work in nanoscience, developing novel polymeric nanostructures and being involved with societal aspects of the field.


2008
Professor David Ritchie
The University of Cambridge
