The High Energy and Particle Physics Prizes
- 2013 The ATLAS and CMS collaborations
- For the discovery of a Higgs boson, as predicted by the Brout-Englert-Higgs
- Michel Della Negra, Peter Jenni, and Tejinder Virdee
- For their pioneering and outstanding leadership rôles in the making of
the ATLAS and CMS experiments.
- 2011 Sheldon Lee Glashow, John Iliopoulos and Luciano Maiani
- For their
crucial contribution to the theory of flavour, presently embedded in the Standard
Theory of strong and electroweak interactions.
- 2009 The Gargamelle Collaboration
- For the observation of the weak neutral current interaction.
- 2007 Makoto Kobayashi, Toshihide Maskawa
- For the proposal of a successful mechanism for CP violation in the Standard Model, predicting the existence of a third family of quarks.
- 2005 Heinrich Wahl and the NA31 Collaboration
- For his outstanding leadership of challenging experiments on CP Violation, and to the NA 31 Collaboration, which showed for the first time Direct CP Violation in the decays of neutral K mesons.
- 2003 David J. Gross, H. David Politzer, Frank Wilczek
- For their fundamental contributions to Quantum chromodynamics, the theory of strong interactions. By demonstrating that the theory is asymptotically free, that the couplings become weak at large momentum transfers, they paved the way for showing that the theory is correct.
- 2001 Don Perkins
- For his outstanding contributions to Neutrino Physics and for implementing the use of Neutrinos as a tool to elucidate the Quark Structure on the Nucleon.
- 1999 Gerardus 't Hooft
- For pioneering contributions to the renormalization of non-abelian gauge theories including the non-perturbative aspects of these theories.
- 1997 Robert Brout, Francois Englert, Peter W. Higgs
- For formulating for the first time a self-consistent theory of charged massive vector bosons which became the foundation of the electroweak theory of elementary particles.
- 1995 Paul Soding, Bjorn H. Wiik, Gunter Wolf, Sau Lan Wu
- For the first evidence for three-jet events in e+e- collisions at PETRA.
- 1993 Martinus J.G. Veltman
- For the role of massive Yang-Mills theories for weak interactions.
- 1991 Nicola Cabibbo
- For the theory of weak interactions leading to the concept of quark mixing.
- 1989 Georges Charpak
- For the development of detectors: multiwire proportional chambers, drift chambers and several other gaseous detectors, and their applications in other fields.
