Ernest D. Courant, 1986


For his many contributions, for over three decades, to the physics of acceleration of charged particles; including his role in the invention of alternating gradient focusing which is the essential mechanism of strong focusing now used in accelerators of the highest energies; and for his many studies of beam interactions and instabilities that have been of critical importance in accelerator design.
