  • Yang Ren
The award recognizes Ren for "creating a world-leading high-energy x-ray diffraction (HE-XRD) beamline and user program for comprehensive atomic structure studies of condensed matter." It was noted in the nomination that the success of the HE-XRD instrument at 11-ID-C "would not have been possible without Dr. Ren’s dedication to establishing, fostering, and guiding his user community." Ren
  • Hua Zhou
Exceptional science in the area of synchrotron radiation studies of complex oxide heterostructures and outstanding dedication to the user community.
  • Byeongdu Lee
Leadership and innovations in nanomaterials and contributions to x-ray scattering including theory, application, and development of analytical methods and state-of-the-art instrumentation.
  • Daniel Haskel
Pioneering work in x-ray magnetic circular dichroism (XMCD) and x-ray resonant magnetic scattering using the hard x-rays at the APS.
  • Jan Ilavsky

Creating the world-leading APS ultra-small-angle X-ray scattering (USAXS) facility for the exploration of materials-based phenomena in pure and applied science.
