Physicist Daniel Dwyer Receives APS Primakoff Award

Daniel Dwyer of the Physics Division has won the 2014 Henry Primakoff Award for Early-Career Particle Physics, which is sponsored by the American Physical Society (APS). The citation reads: “For innovative contributions to neutrino physics, particularly the broad and substantial role he played in commissioning, calibration and analysis in the Daya Bay measurement of the mixing angle theta-13.” Dwyer coordinates data analysis for the multinational experiment in the south of China that involves more than 200 scientists. This is the Lab’s second major 2014 APS award for contributions to the Daya Bay Experiment. Physicist Kam-Biu Luk recently named as co-recipient of the Panofsky Prize.
