2020 Lise Meitner Prize

2020 EPS Meitner Prize awarded to Björn Jonson, Klaus Blaum and Piet van Duppen

The Lise Meitner Prize 2020 honours three scientists representing different experimental techniques and three generations of researchers who have made outstanding contributions to the field on nuclear physics, both scientifically, technologically and in terms of science administration. We are delighted to share that Piet Van Duppen (KU Leuven), supervisor to ESR07 Vaila Leask, is one of these three scientists, alongside Klaus Blaum (Max-Planck-Institue) and Björn Jonson (Chalmers University of Technology). Piet van Duppen pushed the production and investigation of post-accelerated radioactive beams with REX-ISOLDE, for which he laid the foundation with his early work in Louvain-la-Neuve.
