Bob Chivers Prize in Physical Acoustics
Since 2012 the physical acoustics group has been awarding the £250 Bob Chivers Prize annually. The purpose of the prize is to promote research in the field of Physical Acoustics by recognising the best paper published by a PhD student at a UK university. The below poster summarises the entry conditions. Nominations should be directed to V.Pinfield@lboro.ac.uk.
