Fourth Erwin Félix Lewy-Bertaut Prize winner announced
Christian Rügg was awarded the prestigious prize by the European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and The European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA)
The European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and The European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) jointly awarded the fourth Erwin Félix Lewy-Bertaut Prize to Dr. Christian Rügg for his outstanding contributions to the science of low-dimensional quantum spin systems and quantum phase transitions. Dr Rügg deserved the prize notably for his neutron scattering studies of the spin-½ system ACuCl3 (A=K, Ti, NH4) and the discovery of Bose Condensation in such systems.
The prize was awarded by ENSA chairman Michael Steiner, during ECNS 2011.
