The COOL’15 Workshop International Organization Committee has given Accelerator Division Head Sergei Nagaitsev the Dieter Möhl Medal. The medal, sponsored by CERN, is given for pioneering work in the construction of the first high-energy electron cooler and its application to the cooling and accumulation of antiprotons at the Fermilab Recycler Ring, contributing to the significant increase in the integrated luminosity recorded in the Tevatron during Run II.

The Dieter Möhl Medal recognizes accelerator scientists for their lifetime achievements and recent important contributions to the field of beam cooling and their applications. This year the medal was given to two scientists: Nagaitsev and Alexander Skrinsky of Budker INP.

Dieter Möhl, who lived from 1936–2012, was an accelerator physicist of world renown. He made essential contributions to many projects at CERN and around the world.
