October 23, 2017
Congratulations to Prof. Larry Sulak who has been awarded the 2018 W.K.H. Panofsky Prize in Experimental Particle Physics, recognizing outstanding achievements in experimental particle physics, by the American Physical Society. This award was established in 1985 by friends of W. K. H. Panofsky and the Division of Particles and Fields, Stanford University and SLAC, and is the top APS prize in the discipline of experimental particle physics. The citation recognizes Larry's seminal work on developing the water Cherenkov technique:
“For novel contributions to detection techniques, including pioneering developments for massive water Cherenkov detectors that led to major advances in nucleon decay and neutrino oscillation physics."
The prize will be presented at the APS April Meeting Prize and Award Ceremony on Sunday, April 15, 2018 in Columbus, Ohio.
