The Rutherford Medal and Prize is awarded once every two years by the Institute of Physics[1] for "distinguished research in nuclear physics or nuclear technology."[2]

History[edit]

Dedicated to the late Lord Rutherford of Nelson, the Rutherford Memorial Lecture was instituted by the Council of The Physical Society in 1939. The first lecture took place in 1942.[2] The lecture was converted into a medal and prize in 1965, and the first Rutherford Medal and Prize was awarded the following year.[2]

"The award shall be made for distinguished research in nuclear physics or nuclear technology. The medal shall be bronze and shall be accompanied by a prize of £1000 and a certificate."[2]
