CAP Medal and Award Winners

The Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) and its medal partners are pleased to announce the recipients of the 2022 CAP medals. A series of virtual plenary medal talks to honour the 2022 medal recipients will be organized for the latter half of January. Once the dates have been finalized, the detailed talk schedule will be posted on the CAP's website and a NewsFlash will be released. The medals will be forwarded to all recipients with the congratulations of the community.

The 2019 CAP-TRIUMF Vogt Medal for Contributions to Subatomic Physics is awarded to

Scott Oser, University of British Columbia and TRIUMF, in recognition of for his contributions to the study of neutrino oscillations with the SNO and T2K experiments, and to experimental searches for dark matter with SuperCDMS. He has demonstrated excellence in hardware design and construction, data analysis, scientific interpretation of the results, organization, and leadership. The award is in recognition of the breadth of his scientific endeavours, demonstrable expertise, and high impact in each experiment.

The 2016 CAP-TRIUMF Vogt Medal for Contributions to Subatomic Physics is awarded to

Akira Konaka, TRIUMF, in recognition of for his outstanding contributions to the T2K long-baseline neutrino experiment, including his leadership in establishing the collaboration. His innovations to the experiment’s design and analysis methods were critical in the discovery of electron neutrino appearance from the muon neutrino beam, a discovery that led to the T2K project being recognized by the 2016 Breakthrough Prize for Fundamental Physics. The committee also recognized ongoing innovations with new concepts proposed to improve the precision of the T2K experiment and, potentially, the Hyper-K experiment.

The 2015 CAP-TRIUMF Vogt Medal for Contributions to Subatomic Physics is awarded to

Pierre Savard, University of Toronto/ TRIUMF, in recognition of for his contributions to particle physics and in particular for his leadership of the Higgs -> WW analysis, which was an important ingredient in establishing that the discovered particle was, in fact, the Higgs boson.
