BTM Willis Prize
In 2007 the Neutron Scattering Group established a prize for outstanding neutron scattering science.
The prize is named in honour of the founding chairman of the Neutron Scattering Group, Professor B T M Willis. It is intended that the prize will be awarded annually, usually in conjunction with the annual Neutron and Muon Beam Users Meeting, NMUM.
The £250 prize is awarded to an individual in recognition of a single outstanding piece of work, or a longer term coherent body of work, in the application of neutron scattering to a significant problem in physics, chemistry, materials science, earth science, the life sciences, or engineering, or alternatively in recognition of a major development in neutron scattering instrumentation or techniques.
EligibilityThe recipient of the prize will normally be an early career scientist, i.e. in the first 12 years of a research career (allowing for career breaks) e.g. following an award of a first degree, who has made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of physics/chemistry/biology in the UK or Ireland.
