The award recognizes outstanding theoretical or experimental contributions by an early-career scientist to studies of matter at extreme high pressure conditions. This includes static and/or dynamic compressions within the disciplines of Physics, Chemistry, Materials Science, Earth and Planetary Science, Soft Matter and Biology. The honor is conferred annually and includes of a $5000 stipend, a certificate citing the contributions of the recipient, and an allowance for travel to an APS meeting to receive the award to deliver an invited lecture at either the biennial SCCM Conference or the APS March Meeting.
Nominations for the award are invited from the entire community and should include a cover letter from the nominator, two additional letters of support, one example of recent work (e.g. publication, conference proceedings), and the nominee’s CV. The recipient will be chosen biennially by a committee of GSCCM members based on scientific excellence, impact, and relevance to SCCM topical group science.
To recognize contributions to understanding condensed matter and non-linear physics through shock compression. This award is to be presented biennially in odd-numbered years and consists of a cash award of $5,000, a plaque citing the accomplishments of the recipient, and an allowance for travel to the meeting at which it is to be presented.
