The William H. F. Talbot Award
The William H. F. Talbot Award was established at XNPIG2017 (Zurich) to praise young scientists for exceptional contributions to the advancement of X-ray
and neutron phase imaging with gratings,
through either their outstanding technical developments or applications, as evidenced by the presentations at XNPIG conferences and supporting publications.
We celebrated the first winner, Dr. Matias Kagias (ETH Zürich and Paul Scherrer Institute),
for “Direct Self-Imaging Methods for X-ray Differential Phase and Scattering Imaging”.
It is a great pleasure to operate the second William H. F. Talbot Award at XNPIG2019.
The winner will be awarded a prize with a memorial gold-electroplated wafer shown in the photo,
which was fabricated by Paul Scherrer Institute when this award was started in 2017.
Before the closing of XNPIG2019, announcement and award ceremony are scheduled.
Nomination has been closed on June 7, 2019 (JST).
