It gives me great pleasure to announce, on behalf of the Chem Soc Rev Editorial Board, that the winner of the 2011 Chem Soc Rev Lecture Award is Professor Stephen Leone, Professor of Chemistry and Physics at the University of California, Berkeley, and Director of the Chemical Dynamics Beamline and Chemical Sciences Division at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory.
The Chem Soc Rev Lecture Award is given to honour a scientist who has made a significant contribution to their field over the course of their career. The Editorial Board praised Professor Leone’s varied research career, which has been characterised by the development of a great number of novel methods for probing dynamical processes. These have included infrared emission techniques for ion-molecule chemical dynamics, laser single photon ionisation of gaseous species during epitaxial growth and ultrafast soft X-ray generation and probing.
Professor Leone’s award will be presented at a conference later in the year. Details will follow in due course.
