Ernst Award

Ernst Award of the GDCh Division Magnetic Resonance

Richard R. Ernst

In honor of Richard R. Ernst (1933-1921; Nobel Prize winner for chemistry 1991) and his essential contributions to the application of magnetic resonance in solution, in the solid state and its imaging, the GDCh Division Magnetic Resonance awards the Ernst Award for up to three people (students/doctoral candidates) for an outstanding scientific publication. The award includes a certificate and prize money of 500 euros each.
