The Sixth Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut Prize of the European Crystallographic Association (ECA) and European Neutron Scattering Association (ENSA) is awarded to Dr. Johan Chang.
The Price is awarded from From École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the quest for understanding cuprate superconductors. His ingeous use of the complementarity of neutron- and X-ray scattering on the so called stripe phases (spin and charge density waves) is worth a special mentioning.
The prize has been set up in honour of the late Erwin Felix Lewy Bertaut, and in memory of his scientific achievements and cornerstones in crystallography and in neutron scattering. It is awarded to a young European scientist (up to 5-8 years after finishing the PhD-thesis) in recognition of notable experimental theoretical or methodological contributions in the field of investigation of matter using crystallographic or neutron scattering methods.
