Professor Kenneth Lane wins APS J.J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics

September 29, 2010

Physics Professor Kenneth Lane has been awarded the 2011 J. J. Sakurai Prize for Theoretical Particle Physics of the American Physical Society, sponsored by the family and friends of J. J. Sakurai. He will share the prize with Drs. Estia Eichten of Fermilab, Ian Hinchliffe of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory and Chris Quigg of Fermilab.

The Prize was established to recognize and encourage outstanding achievement in particle theory. The citation will read:

“For their work, separately and collectively, to chart a course for the exploration of TeV scale physics using multi-TeV hadron colliders.” The J. J. Sakurai Prize will be presented at the APS April 2011 meeting in Anaheim, California, April 30-May 3, 2011, at a special Ceremonial.
