Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi, University of California, Los Angeles, USA, is the winner of the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Award 2018. He will visit the Gothenburg Physics Centre to receive the award and give the traditional award lecture in honour of the Austrian-Swedish physicist Lise Meitner. Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi receives the award "for conclusively demonstrating the advantages of using relativistically propagating plasma waves for electron acceleration." Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
About Chandrashekhar Joshi
Professor Chandrashekhar Joshi is considered the Father of the experimental field of High-Gradient Plasmabased Charged Particle Acceleration – a paradigm shift for building accelerators of tomorrow.
In a career spanning four decades, Joshi and his colleagues have carried out pioneering experiments -using laser and ultra-relativistic electron pulses as drivers- on electron and positron acceleration using plasma waves thousands of times more rapidly than in a conventional accelerator.
