EM Award 2016
In January of this year, 10 of our finest colleagues were nominated for the prestigious quadrennial European Microscopy Award (EMAward). The jury has now come to a final decision.
- Dr. Angus Kirkland (Oxford) was selected as the winner of the Materials Sciences award (including instrumental and methodological developments) for outstanding achievements in theoretical and instrumental areas such as pioneering exit-wave reconstruction, EM ptychography and detector design.
- Dr. Niels de Jonge (Leibniz) was selected as the winner of the Life Sciences award (including instrumental and methodological developments) for outstanding achievements in instrumentation to enable liquid in-situ experiments for the life sciences and nanotechnology.
Each award comes with a plaque and a price of 3.000 euro sponsored by JEOL.
Both winners will deliver a 30 min. award lecture at emc2016 in Lyon on Thursday September 1 between 14:00 and 15:30 and write a contribution for the next EMS Yearbook:
- Angus Kirkland: Exit Wavefunction Reconstruction: Current Status, Future Prospects and Applications to Materials Systems
- Niels de Jonge: Scanning transmission electron microscopy of eukaryotic cells in liquid
