American Physical Society awards 2024 Robert R. Wilson Prize to Kaoru Yokoya, Diamond Fellow of KEK

27 November 2023 The American Physical Society (APS) has announced that the 2024 Robert R. Wilson Prize for achievement in the physics of Particle Accelerators will be awarded to Kaoru Yokoya, a Diamond Fellow and Professor Emeritus of KEK Accelerator Laboratory, and fomer ILC Global Design Effort Asian Regional Director. He receives the prize for his outstanding contributions in the areas of the theory and control of beam polarization in electron storage rings, beam-beam interactions in linear colliders, crab-crossing and coherent beam-beam interactions in circular colliders, and bunched beam instabilities. Congratulations to Kaoru!
