It is with great pleasure that I announce that the winner of the 2014 Yamazaki Prize for muon science is
Professor Roberto De Renzi
Roberto De Renzi is Professor of Physics at the University of Parma and is recognised for his sustained and exceptional contributions to the development of the μSR technique to investigate solid-state physics. Roberto began his μSR career at CERN and has been a long-time user of the muon facilities at ISIS and PSI, as well as performing many pioneering NMR experiments at his lab in Parma. His work has made effective bridges between NMR and muon techniques and he is particularly well known for his work in magnetism and superconductivity.
