The Guinier Prize 

The International Union of Crystallography (IUCr) Commission on Small-Angle Scattering, together with the organising committee of the Triennial Conference on Small-Angle Scattering presents a prize of US$5000 in honour of the great scientist and 'father' of small-angle scattering Professor André Guinier.

The Guinier prize is given for lifetime achievement, a major breakthrough or an outstanding contribution to the field of small-angle scattering.

 

Otto Glatter awarded the 2012 Guinier Prize

The 2012 Guinier Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Small-Angle Scattering is awarded to Professor Otto Glatter of the University of Graz, Austria

The 2012 Guinier Prize for Lifetime Achievement in Small-Angle Scattering is awarded to Professor Otto Glatter of the University of Graz, Austria:

for his dedicated development, application, propagation and dissemination of small-angle X-ray, light and neutron scattering methods over more than 40 years;

for his pioneering work on the development of the indirect Fourier Transform method and its application to solve practical problems in real materials across many fields, especially in polymer science, soft matter and nanoparticle systems, and its extension to concentrated systems;

and for his universally recognized service in building up the international small-angle scattering community through teaching and training, software development and publication, development of instrumentation, and the writing of a widely used teaching text.
