Nominations are requested for the 2011 Edward Teller Medal sponsored by the American Nuclear Society. This medal is given in recognition of pioneering research and leadership in the use of lasers, ion-particle beams or other high intensity drivers to produce unique high-density matter for scientific research and to conduct investigations of inertial fusion. The Medal and a $2000 cash prize will be awarded to each of two individuals at the Seventh International Conference on Inertial Fusion Sciences and Applications (IFSA) that will be held in Bordeaux-Lac, France in September 2011.
Anyone in the inertial fusion field can nominate someone for the Award.
