The SHUG Award for Excellence in Beam Line Science recognizes beam line scientists who have made significant scientific contributions in their area of research or instrumentation development, and have participated in the growth and enrichment of the user community.
Two awards are conferred in alternate years at the SNS and HFIR Users Group (SHUG) User Meeting to an active SNS and HFIR beam line scientist, one for each facility. A list of beam line scientists at the SNS and HFIR who are eligible for the award are listed here. Any SNS and/or HFIR user may submit a nomination. The recipients will be recognized at the 2019 SNS/HFIR User Meeting, receive a monetary award, and have his or her name placed on an award plaque at each facility.
