The Alfred P. Sloan Foundation congratulates the winners of the 2020 Sloan Research Fellowships. These 126 early-career scholars represent the most promising scientific researchers working today. Their achievements and potential place them among the next generation of scientific leaders in the U.S. and Canada. Winners receive $75,000, which may be spent over a two-year term on any expense supportive of their research.
Bao Wang received the UCLA Outstanding Postdoctoral Fellow Award in 2020. Dr. Wang works with the Osher research group.
Congrats to Margaret Murnane and Henry Kapteyn for Receiving the 2020 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Physics
The Franklin Institute is pleased to announce The Franklin Institute Awards Class of 2020! Henry C. Kapteyn and Margaret M. Murnane, 2020 Benjamin Franklin Medal in Physics. Now in its 196th year, The Franklin Institute Awards pays tribute to our namesake and America’s first great scientist, Benjamin Franklin, by honoring the greatest minds in science, engineering, and industry. Our newest laureates are making our world safer, healthier, and more connected. They made revolutionary advances in laser technology, learned how forests recover from fires, uncovered the mechanisms behind color vision, and laid the foundation for artificial intelligence. Their work enables technologies never before thought possible and helps us better understand our planet and ourselves. They are mentors and role models for the next generation of science and engineering trailblazers. They are creating a better future for us all.
A husband-and-wife team at the forefront of laser science at the University of Colorado Boulder are following in the footsteps of the Curies, winning a prestigious Benjamin Franklin Medal.
The Franklin Institute announced today that Henry Kapteyn and Margaret Murnane would receive this year’s medal in physics—one of several awards handed out annually by the center named after scientist and founding father Benjamin Franklin.
Kapteyn and Murnane are fellows in JILA, a joint research institute between CU Boulder and the National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST). They have pioneered new advancements in X-ray lasers, devices that shoot out incredibly fast pulses of X-ray radiation.
Congrats to Diana Rossell-Eddy for Receiving the First Place Poster Award at the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics
Congratulations to Diana Rossell-Eddy for winning the first place poster prize at the Conference for Undergraduate Women in Physics! The APS CUWiP goal is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas.
Congrats to Naomi Ginsberg for Receiving the 2020 Physical Chemistry Division Award from the American Chemical Society
The 2020 Early-Career Award in Experimental Physical Chemistry is awarded to Prof. Naomi S. Ginsberg at UC-Berkeley, “For the development of new time- and space-resolved imaging and spectroscopy methods to study dynamical phenomena in heterogeneous materials.” The Physical Chemistry Division annually sponsors senior and early-career awards in theoretical and experimental physical chemistry that are intended to recognize the most outstanding scientific achievements of members of the Division. The 2020 recipients will be honored at the the Fall ACS National Meeting in San Francisco.
