  • 2018 Tom W. Bonner Prize in Nuclear Physics Recipient

     

    Bradley M. Sherrill

    The Bonner prize was established by the American Physical Society (APS) to recognize and encourage outstanding research in nuclear physics, including the development of a method, technique, or device that significantly contributes in a general way to nuclear physics research.  The prize was endowed in 1964 as a memorial to Tom W. Bonner by his friends, students and associates.

    The recipient of the 2018 Bonner Prize is Professor Bradley M. Sherrill of the National Superconducting Cyclotron Laboratory at Michigan State University according to the APS announcement is being acknowledged.

    "For his scientific leadership in the development and utilization of instruments and techniques of discovery and exploration of exotic nuclei, and for his community leadership in elucidating the physics of rare isotope beams and advancing the realization of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams facility."
