  • 2022 Tom W. Bonner Prize in Nuclear Physics

  • Professor David W. Hertzog 

    2022 Tom W. Bonner Prize in Nuclear Physics Recipient
    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 2022 Bonner Prize is Professor David W. Hertzog According to the APS announcement is being acknowledged
    "For advancing the frontiers of understanding nature's fundamental symmetries via unprecedented precision studies of the muon, including its lifetime, its anomalous magnetic moment, and its measurement by the pseudoscalar coupling constant."

    Professor Hertzog’s research is supported by the DOE’s Office of Science, Office of Nuclear Physics (NP).

  • 2022 Feshbach Prize in Theoretical Nuclear Physics

  • Professor David B. Kaplan

    The Feshbach Prize in Theoretical Nuclear Physics was established in 2014 by the American Physical Society (APS) “To recognize and encourage outstanding research in theoretical nuclear physics.”  The Prize commemorates Herman Feshbach, who was a renowned Professor of Theoretical Nuclear Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) for over 50 years, and served as Department Chair and Director of the MIT Center for Theoretical Physics.  The Feshbach Prize is supported by the APS Division of Nuclear Physics (DNP), and by the Feshbach family and friends.

    The recipient of the 2022 Feshbach Prize is Professor David B. Kaplan Institute for Nuclear Theory.  According to the APS announcement is being acknowledged

    "For multiple foundational innovations in nuclear theory, including in lattice quantum chromodynamics, effective field theories, and nuclear strangeness, and for strategic leadership to broaden participation between nuclear theory and other fields."

    Professor Kaplan’s research is supported by the DOE’s Office of Science, Office of Nuclear Physics (NP).
