Prize Recipient

Jerome I. Friedman


"For their leadership in the first experiments on the deep inelastic scattering of electrons with protons, deuterons, and heavier nuclei. These lepton-nucleon scattering experiments which were the vehicle for the discovery of the “scaling” phenomenon, gave the first direct evidence for a charged, point-like substructure inside the nucleon. The results of these high quality experiments still stand and have been supported and extended to higher energies and momentum transfers by later experiments with electrons, muons and neutrinos."
