U.S. Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced today the winners of the 2009 E.O. Lawrence Award for their outstanding contributions in research and development supporting the Department of Energy and its missions.
The award is one of the most prestigious honors given by the department.
The six winners named today will receive a gold medal, a citation and $50,000. Winners will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, D.C. early next year.
Although none of this year’s award winners were from Los Alamos National Laboratory, past award winners from Los Alamos have included Sig Hecker and Bette Korber.
“The contributions made by these researchers to advance the national, economic and energy security of the United States are wide-ranging and meaningful,” Secretary Chu said. “I congratulate the winners and look forward to their discoveries still to come.”
The Lawrence Award was established in 1959 to honor the memory of Dr. Ernest Orlando Lawrence who invented the cyclotron (a particle accelerator), and after whom two major Energy Department laboratories in Berkeley and Livermore, California are named.
The 2009 E.O. Lawrence Award winners are:
