In honor of Otto Stern, whose work on the detection of spin quantization created the basic prerequisites for the use of magnetic resonance, and in recognition of the life's work of internationally outstanding personalities in the field of magnetic resonance, the GDCh Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy the Otto-Stern Award in 2020 a. The award is given at irregular intervals and no more than once a year. It is equipped with an award certificate, a trophy and invitations to a lecture as part of the Division conference and a festive dinner. The awarding of the prize of the Division Board decides.
Submission deadline: January 7th of each year for the current calendar year.
Since 2020, the Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy of the German Chemical Society (GDCh) has been awarding the Otto-Stern Award at irregular intervals and no more than once a year to honor the life's work of internationally outstanding personalities in the field of magnetic resonance. The prize is awarded in memory of Otto Stern, whose work on the detection of spin quantization created the basic prerequisites for the use of magnetic resonance.
The award comes with an award certificate, a trophy and an invitation to a festive dinner. The award ceremony usually takes place during the discussion meeting of the Division. Following the award, the awardee: hold a keynote lecture. The awarding of the prize of the Division Board decides.
People who have made extraordinary contributions to magnetic resonance in their life's work can be nominated. All members of the Division to make proposals; Self-nominations are not possible. All suggestions consist of an informal appraisal of the achievements and a curriculum vitae (including contact details). Each nomination is considered for the current and two subsequent years.
Please send all suggestions electronically and summarized in a PDF file to the GDCh Office for the attention of Maike Fries.
The first Otto-Stern Award of the Division of Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy was awarded to Prof. Dr. hc mult. Tony Keller awarded in recognition of his fundamental and extraordinary contributions to the development of nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy - from noise decoupling and the introduction of pulse Fourier spectroscopy in commercial spectrometers to superconducting magnets and fully digitized spectrometers to cryo-heads and high-field spectrometers - the NMR- Spectroscopy opened up a broad scientific application in Germany and around the world and thus made a decisive contribution to the establishment of NMR spectroscopy in chemistry as well as in the biological and materials science .
The Otto-Stern Award 2020 commemorates the discovery of directional quantization in the spin states "up" and "down". Tony Keller has led the development of NMR spectroscopy in the "up" direction.
