The Rutherford Medal and Prize is a subject award of the Institute of Physics,[1] presented once every two years for distinguished research in nuclear physics or nuclear technology.

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. The lecture was converted into a medal and prize in 1965, and the first Rutherford Medal and Prize was awarded the following year.

"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]
