Secretary of Energy announces seven E.O. Lawrence Award Winners

Secretary of Energy Spencer Abraham today named the seven winners of the 2004 E.O. Lawrence Award. Each winner will receive a gold medal, a citation and $50,000. The award is given in seven categories for outstanding contributions in the broadly defined field of atomic energy.

"We are all enriched by the contributions these researchers have made ranging from engines with no moving parts to better ways to see the stars," Secretary Abraham said. "These awards, and the research for which they are given, show that DOE could easily be called the Department of Science and Energy."

The winners are:
Nathaniel Fisch, Princeton University, Princeton, N.J., and Princeton Plasma Physics Laboratory (PPPL);
Bette Korber, Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL), Los Alamos, N.M.;
Claire Max, University of California, Santa Cruz, and Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Livermore, Calif.;
Fred Mortensen, Los Alamos National Laboratory;
Richard J. Saykally, University of California, Berkeley, and Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory;
Ivan Schuller, University of California, San Diego; and,
Gregory W. Swift, Los Alamos National Laboratory.

The Lawrence Award was established in 1959 to honor the memory of the late Dr. Ernest Orlando Lawrence who invented the cyclotron (a particle accelerator) and after whom two major Energy Department laboratories in Berkeley and Livermore, Calif., are named. The Lawrence Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Washington, D.C., on November 8.

Fisch, a physicist, will receive the award in the nuclear technology category for his discovery of ways to use plasma waves to produce currents in fusion tokamaks. These toroidal currents enable tokamak reactors to operate continuously, which is necessary for an economical and practical fusion reactor. Fisch is professor of ast
