Date:12/16/2009

Washington, DC US Secretary of Energy Steven Chu announced today the winners of the 2009 E.O. Lawrence Award for their outstanding contributions in research and development supporting the Department of Energy and its missions. The six winners named today will receive a gold medal, a citation and $50,000. Winners will be honored at a ceremony in Washington, DC early next year.

"The contributions made by these researchers to advance the national, economic and energy security of the United States are wide-ranging and meaningful," Secretary Chu said. "I congratulate the winners and look forward to their discoveries still to come."

The Lawrence Award was established in 1959 to honor the memory of Dr. Ernest Orlando Lawrence who invented the cyclotron (a particle accelerator), and after whom two major Energy Department laboratories in Berkeley and Livermore, California are named.

The 2009 E.O. Lawrence Award winners are:

  • Sunney Xie, Harvard University -- Chemistry
    Sunny Xie will be honored for his innovations in nonlinear Raman microscopy and highly sensitive vibrational imaging, his scientific leadership in establishing the field of single-molecule biophysical chemistry, and his seminal work in enzyme dynamics and live cell gene expression. Xie is in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University.

  • Joan F. Brennecke, University of Notre Dame -- Environmental Science and Technology
    Joan Brennecke will be honored for her seminal work advancing fundamental understanding in supercritical fluids and ionic liquids, and her scientific and technological leadership in discovering new environmentally-benign, green chemistries.

  • Wim Leemans, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory -- High Energy and Nuclear Physics
    Wim Leemans will be honored for his breakthrough work in developing the laser plasma wakefield accelerator from concept to demonstration, and his scientific leadership ex
