In even-numbered years, the German working group Group for Analytical Spectroscopy (DAAS) of the GDCh Division of Analytical Chemistry awards the "Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award for Analytical Spectroscopy" to honor outstanding spectroscopic achievements, especially of younger scientists from universities, research institutes or industry. Work from all sub-areas of analytical spectroscopy is taken into account, but in particular from innovative subject areas such as spectroscopy in the nano range, on biomolecules or spatially resolved spectroscopy. The prize, which has been endowed with 3000 euros since 2020 by the company Analytik Jena, will be awarded at the analytica conference in Munich.
The "German working group Group for Applied Spectroscopy" (DASp) started awarding the Bunsen-Kirchhoff Prize in 1990. Since 2014, the DAAS, which consists of the union of the working groups DASp and AMSEl. ("working group for micro and trace analysis of the elements and element species") continued this tradition.
The price is currently not advertised.
The Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award 2022 was awarded to Dr. Carlos Abad Andrade (California Institute of Technology, Pasadena, California, USA) in recognition of his excellent developments in continuum source atomic absorption spectrometry (CS-AAS).
"Dr. Carlos Abad Andrade is an outstanding expert in the field of atomic and molecular absorption spectrometry. In particular, he made a significant contribution to the substantial further development of Echelle spectrometers for CS-AAS. This enabled quantitative access to elements such as boron, chlorine, fluorine and sulphur, using AAS.For the first time, Dr. Carlos Abad Andrade demonstrates, using the example of a Zr modifier, that the time resolution of the Echelle systems used enables mechanistic investigations into the effect of the modifier in the graphite furnace.His work deserves special mention for the use of CS-AAS for the analysis of isotopes, which has an accuracy that comes close to that of multi-collector inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (MC-ICP-MS).This results in completely new possible uses for technologically highly relevant applications, such as examining the aging of lithium batteries or lithium analyses e in blood serum."
The 2020 Bunsen-Kirchhoff Award was awarded to Dr. habil. Natalia P. Ivleva (Technical University of Munich, Institute for water chemistry and Chemical Balneology, Chair for Analytical Chemistry and water chemistry) - in recognition of her excellent developments in the field of Raman microspectroscopy, in particular stable isotope Raman microspectroscopy.
"Dr. Ivleva is an outstanding expert in the field of Raman spectroscopy. She was able to show for the first time that Raman microscopy is an efficient method for characterizing the nanostructures of combustion aerosol particles and is suitable for predicting their structure-related activity. In addition, Dr. Ivleva established a Raman microscopy based analytical method for the reliable identification and quantification of micro-plastic particles in environment and food samples.Her most recent work on stable isotope Raman microspectroscopy deserves special mention, in which she combined with surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) a completely new, effective and non-destructive tool for 2D and 3D spectroscopic characterization of microorganisms at the single cell level."
