VOGT RADIOCHEMISTRY SCHOLARSHIP

James R. Vogt Radiochemistry Scholarship is for an undergraduate or one graduate student enrolled in or proposing to undertake research in radio-analytical chemistry or analytical chemistry or analytical applications of nuclear science.

James R. Vogt

Dr. James R. Vogt spent most of his professional career at the University of Missouri. At the time of his death, he was Program Manager for Nuclear Analysis at the Research Reactor Facility and was Professor of Nuclear Engineering. Dr. Vogt’s contributions to the field of radioanalytical chemistry were many and they have been recognized internationally by his appointments to the Editorial Boards of the Journal of Radioanalytical Chemistry and of Radiochemical and Radioanalytical Letters and as a member of the International Program Committee on Modern Trends in Activation Analysis. The latter committee organizes the major international activation analysis conference held every four years. However, Dr. Vogt will be best remembered as the inspiration and organizer of the “Missouri” Conferences that, during the passing years, became the major forum for radioanalytical chemistry and its applications in the United States. These conferences (Nuclear Methods in Environment and Energy Research) were held as ANS Topical Meetings in 1971, 1974, 1977, and 1980, at the University of Missouri. The popularity and the increasing international character of these conferences resulted in the last “Missouri” conference being held as an International ANS Topical Conference in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico in 1984. Dr. Vogt was also a member of the Program Committee for the 1978 and 1980 ANS Topical Meetings held in Mayaguez, PR. Thus, in a major sense, Jim Vogt was responsible for the growth in international stature of these ANS Topical Meetings in radioanalytical chemistry over the past decades. At the time of this death, he was a member of the Organizing Committee of the International Conference on Methods and Applications of Radioanalytical Chemistry to be held in Kona, Hawaii, April 1987. This ANS Topical Meeting was a major conference involving the Pacific Rim countries and was co-sponsored by ten international societies, in addition to ANS. This conference was the direct successor to the “Missouri” conferences and the previous Mayaguez ANS Topicals.

Radiation Science & Technology Award

Description

The Radiation Science and Technology Award recognizes meritorious research or basic development from which there is a particularly significant industrial application. The work may have been performed at any time in the past; it must have been fully published in an established scientific journal, and the results of the efforts must have been practically established although not necessarily in widespread use at the time the award is given. The award will be presented to an individual who is determined to have made the most outstanding creative application of radiation sciences and engineering principles.  This award consists of a plaque and a monetary award of $2,000. The award is presented during the ANS Winter Meeting.

Background
This award was established in 1967 to recognize meritorious research or basic development from which there is particularly significant industrial application. The work may have been performed at any time in the past; it must have been fully published in an established scientific journal, and the results of the efforts must have been practically established although not necessarily in widespread use at the time the award is given.
