Prize Recipient

Ernest K. Warburton


"For pioneering contributions to our under-standing of the structure of light nuclei via the development and exploitation of experimental techniques in nuclear spectroscopy combined with theoretical analyses. In particular, his development of the gamma-gamma directional correlations measurements for extracting multipolarity information for in-beam gamma-ray spectroscopy, his pioneering measurements of nuclear lifetimes with Doppler shift methods, his development of methods of deducing multipolarities from the correlation of pairs in internal conversion, and his experimental and theoretical studies of first-forbidden beta decay which show strong evidence for mesonic contributions to the weak axial current"
