Neutron Scattering Society Awards Brookhaven Physicist

Jun 2006
John Tranquada, a senior physicist at the US Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory, was recently named the recipient of The Neutron Scattering Society of America's 2006 Sustained Research johntranquada.jpgPrize, which recognizes a sustained contribution to science using neutron scattering techniques. In these techniques, scientists use neutrons -- subatomic particles created in a nuclear reactor or a particle accelerator -- to probe materials for insight into their atomic structure and dynamics. Tranquada was recognized for his "outstanding neutron scattering studies of the charge and spin ordering in the high-temperature cuprates and related materials," the society said. The $2500 award will be presented at the American Conference on Neutron Scattering, to be held June 21 in St Charles, Ill. A Fellow of the American Physical Society, Tranquada received a US Department of Energy Award for Outstanding Scientific Accomplishment in Solid State Physics in 1988 and Brookhaven Lab's Research & Development Award in 1997.
