Calem Hoffman wins APS dissertation award

The American Physical Society has presented Calem Hoffman with the 2010 Dissertation in Nuclear Physics Award. His research into neutron-rich isotopes at the dripline was conducted at NSCL as part of the MoNA collaboration.
The award was given at an APS meeting on February 16, recognizing how his work provided an "identification of a systematic reduction in the effective p-sd shell gap, indicating a weakening of the gap as neutrons are added." Having earned his Ph.D. from Florida State University in 2009, Calem is now in a post-doctoral research appointment at Argonne National Laboratory's ATLAS facility.
