The Hendrik Casimir prize winners 2011


The Casimir Research School yearly awards prizes for the best MSc students. This year’s award winners are Rianne van den Berg (Delft) and Evert van Nieuwenburg (Leiden). They receive the Hendrik Casimir prize 2011, in the form of a certificate and a sum of €750,- .

The prize is based on the revenues from a donation by the late Josina Casimir-Jonker, widow of the famous Hendrik Casimir. The selection was made by a committee formed by dr. Jos Thijssen (director of Master Education Delft), prof. Jan Aarts (Director of Education Leiden) and dr. Sander Otte (coordinator of the Casmir pre-PhD Master program).

The prize winners, Rianne van den Berg and Evert van Nieuwenburg, are both excellent MSc students that have been selected because of their exceptional results, in experimental physics as well as in theoretical physics.
