Accelerator prizes

1 October 2001

US Particle Accelerator School prizes for Achievement in Accelerator Physics and Technology for this year went to Tor Raubenheimer of SLAC, Stanford and Dieter Moehl of CERN.

Raubenheimer received the award for the development of emittance control techniques for high-performance electron-positron linear collider and storage rings, and for his leadership role in the development of a second generation linear collider.

Moehl was honoured for his outstanding contributions to beam cooling and to counteracting intensity limitations, and for his impact on the conception, design and operation of low-energy storage rings for ions and antiprotons.

The prizes were awarded at the 2001 Particle Accelerator Conference in Chicago.
