Tony Keller

Awarded on September 8, 2020 by Prof. Dr. Christian Griesinger: "... in tribute to his more than 50 years of pioneering work at Bruker in the field of nuclear magnetic resonance, which has just turned discoveries into commercial products for the benefit of science - from noise decoupling to pulse Fourier spectroscopy to superconducting Magnets, fully digitized spectrometers, cryo-heads and high-field spectrometers. The fruits of its work have inspired the Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy for decades, enabled many scientific findings and made a decisive contribution to the outstanding position of magnetic resonance in Germany.

Robert Guy Griffin

Awarded on September 30, 2014 as part of the FGMR lecture conference in Berlin: "... for his outstanding contributions to the field of magnetic resonance. He is the father of dipolar recoupling sequences and established dynamic nuclear polarization in solid-state NMR for applications in biological sciences. His fundamental work on dynamic nuclear polarization required a combination of state-of-the-art NMR and EPR techniques. He has driven dynamic nuclear polarization in the solid to a useful method for approximately 20 years. The investigation of the DNP effect in solids required basic understanding of magnetic resonance phenomena and in addition chemistry to implement the most efficient polarization transfer mechanisms with the least power and with biradicals of the correct geometry and rigidity as well as solubility. His instrumental design became commercially available and was adopted by numerous research groups. Bob Griffin has applied his methods to the study of highly relevant biolo gical problems such as amyloids and the photocycle of bacteriorhodopsin. He has contributed to educating several excellent scientists, who have a leading role in magnetic resonance in Germany. "

Horst Kessler

Awarded on September 22, 2010 during the FGMR lecture conference in Münster: "... in recognition of his continuous commitment both in the context of the establishment and the successful continuation of the Division as well as his diverse national and international services in the field."

Richard R. Ernst (1933-1921)

Awarded on September 29, 1998 in Obernai during the Franco-German NMR Conference II: "... in recognition of his pioneering contributions to the development of magnetic resonance over more than three decades, which made magnetic resonance the most important means of elucidating the structure and structure Dynamics of molecules in solution and in the solid state, in materials science and life sciences and for imaging in medicine , in particular for the introduction of Fourier transform NMR spectroscopy, multidimensional NMR spectroscopy, the multidimensional imaging experiment of polarization transfer techniques in solution and in the solid state and the systematic investigation of the dynamics of molecules. The Division thus honors one of the most outstanding researchers in the natural sciences, who is not only distinguished by his scientific contributions, but also by his commitment to magnetic resonance and its device-related developments lungs as well as by his standing for the development of basic research in the public. "

Robert Kosfeld (1925-2007)
