he prize is named in honour of the founding chairman of the Neutron Scattering Group, Professor B T M Willis.
The prize is awarded annually, in conjunction with the annual Neutron and Muon Beam Users Meeting, NMUM.
The prize is awarded to an individual in recognition of a single outstanding piece of work, or a longer term coherent body of work, in the application of neutron scattering to a significant problem in physics, chemistry, materials science, earth science, the life sciences, or engineering, or alternatively in recognition of a major development in neutron scattering instrumentation or techniques.
The recipient of the prize will normally be a young scientist, i.e. in the
first 12 years of a research career (allowing for career breaks) e.g. following the award of a first degree, who has made a substantial contribution to the development or reputation of physics / Chemistry / Biology in the UK or Ireland.
