Nominations are sought for the Young Scientist Prize in Atomic, Molecular and Optical (AMO) Physics, which will be awarded in 2017 by the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics through Commission C15 (AMO Physics). The prize will be awarded during the 30th International Conference on Photonic, Electronic and Atomic Collisions (ICPEAC) to be held from 26 July – 1 August 2017 at Cairns, Australia. The Prize includes a certificate, a medal, a 1,000 Euro award and an invited presentation at ICPEAC.

Nominees for the 2017 award are expected to have made original and outstanding contributions to the field of AMO Physics. If the work was performed in collaboration, the leading personal contribution of the nominee must be clearly identified. To qualify as a “Young Scientist,” a nominee should have had, by 1 January 2017, no more than 8 years research experience (excluding career interruption) following the PhD. That is, the year of the PhD must have been 2009 or later, barring career interruptions.

Nominations should include:

• A brief paragraph stating the achievement for which the nominee is to be recognised.
• Curriculum vitae including all publications.

Self-nominations will not be considered. Nominations should be sent to: Toshiyuki Azuma Atomic, Molecular & Optical Physics Lab., RIKEN [toshiyuki-azuma [at] riken [dot] jp

The deadline is 31 March 2017.

First evidence for matter-antimatter asymmetries in baryon decays by LHCb

The LHCb collaboration has published today in Nature Physics the first evidence for the violation of the CP symmetry in baryon decays with statistical significance of 3.3 standard deviations (σ). CP violation has been observed in K and B meson decays, but not yet in any baryon decay.
