Particle Accelerator Science and Technology Doctoral Student Award (established in 2008)
NPS-05 (Division IV)The IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society awards the Particle Accelerator Science and Technology Doctoral Student Award to individuals who have made outstanding thesis research in particle accelerator science and technology.
This award is made to recognize significant and innovative technical contributions to the field of particle accelerator science and technology as demonstrated in a student’s doctoral thesis.
Nominations should include a nomination letter from the thesis adviser containing a suggested award citation, a link to a web site containing the Ph.D. thesis, a brief curriculum vitae, a list of relevant publications and up to three letters of support from persons besides the nominator.
The 2013 PAST Doctoral Student Award will be presented at the 2013 Particle Accelerator Conference (September 29-October 4) in Pasadena, CA. Please send nominations before close of business EST Friday June 28, 2013. Nominations are to be sent to the Awards Subcommittee Chair of the IEEE/NPSS Particle Accelerator Science and Technology Technical Committee.
|Description:||To recognize significant and innovative technical contributions to the field of particle accelerator science and technology as demonstrated in a student’s doctoral thesis.|
|Prize:||$2000 and Plaque|
|Funding:||Funded by the IEEE Nuclear and Plasma Sciences Society’s Particle Accelerator Conference (PAC) budget.|
|Eligibility:||Nominations can be submitted only by IEEE members. Nominees must pass their thesis defense not more than 24 months before the nomination deadline from any university world-wide. An individual should be nominated once; however, an unsuccessful candidate will be carried over for one PAC cycle.|
|Basis for Judging:||Nominees will be judged according to their contributions to particle accelerator science and technology as demonstrated by the technical merit and creativity of their research. Priority will be given to nominees whose research has been published in peer-reviewed journals, especially if the nominee is the first author.|
|Presentation:||This award is given in the same year as the Particle Accelerator Conference. The recipient will be invited to present the work as an invited talk in an appropriate session of the meeting.|

For the demonstration of two-bunch high-gradient acceleration in a plasma wakefield accelerator and the development of novel multi-bunch concepts.
For contributions to the physics and materials science of superconducting niobium radio‐frequency resonating cavities, in particular for discovering subtle structural changes that occur during low‐temperature baking.
For contributions to the physics of high quantum-efficiency photocathodes.
For contributions to the fundamental understanding of the field dependent loss mechanisms in SRF cavities.
