Fritz London Award for Low Temperature Physics


Nominations are sought for the Fritz London Memorial Award for Low Temperature Physics, which will be presented at the International Low Temperature Conference (LT22) in Helsinki, Finland in August 1999. The Fritz London Memorial Award is an international prize that is awarded once every three years which is intended to recognize outstanding experimental and theoretical contributions to low temperature physics.

Nominations and supporting letters should be sent to the Chair of the Award Committee:

Prof. R.A. Webb
Dept. of Physics
University of Maryland
College Park, MD 20742-4111
These materials may also be sent by e-mail to RAWEBB@SQUID.UMD.EDU.

The deadline for the receipt of nominations and supporting letters is November 15, 1998.

A letter of nomination should clearly state all of the following:

Supporting letters should assess the quality and significance of the work of the candidate.

There are no restrictions on nationality or age of those who are given this award. It has been the policy of the committee to avoid giving the award for work that has already been recognized by the Simon Prize or by other comparable awards, and to look more favorably on recent work than on work whose significance has been apparent for a long time (see a list of previous prize winners). The Fritz London Memorial Award is supported by endowments created at Duke University by the late John Bardeen, by the organizers of LT20 and Horst Meyer, and by a generous gift from Oxford Instruments.
