Bertram Brockhouse Net Worth

Bertram Brockhouse was born on July 15, 1918 in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada, Canadian, is Physicist. Bertram Brockhouse was a Canadian physicist who was felicitated with Nobel Prize in Physics in 1994 for his pioneering research and development of the neutron-scattering technique. Brockhouse shared the prize with Clifford G Shull who did similar research although independently of Brockhouse. Brockhouse’s stint with physics began when he was in high school. His interest in the subject was only augmented by the passing years as he gained higher education at the University of British Columbia and later at the University of Toronto. Brockhouse’s most ground-breaking research came in neutron-scattering techniques. Contrasting to the general technique wherein a beam of neutrons aimed at a target material leading to the scattering of the neutrons yielding information about that material’s atomic structure, in Brockhouse’s technique (called inelastic neutron scattering), the relative energies of the scattered neutrons were measured to yield additional data. He used it in his revolutionary examination of phonons. He also developed the neutron spectrometer and was one of the first to measure the phonon dispersion curve of a solid.

Awards and nominations:

Brockhouse was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society (FRS) in 1965. In 1982, Brockhouse was made an Officer of the Order of Canada and was promoted to Companion in 1995.

Brockhouse shared the 1994 Nobel Prize in Physics with American Clifford Shull of MIT for developing neutron scattering techniques for studying condensed matter.

In October 2005, as part of the 75th anniversary of McMaster University's establishment in Hamilton, Ontario, a street on the University campus (University Avenue) was renamed to Brockhouse Way in honour of Brockhouse. The town of Deep River, Ontario has also named a street in his honour.

The Nobel Prize that Bertram Brockhouse won (shared with Clifford Shull) in 1994 was awarded after the longest ever waiting time (counting from the time when the award-winning research had been carried out).

In 1999 the Division of Condensed Matter and Materials Physics (DCMMP) and the Canadian Association of Physicists (CAP) created a medal in honour of Brockhouse. The medal is called the Brockhouse Medal and is awarded to recognize and encourage outstanding experimental or theoretical contributions to condensed matter and materials physics. This medal is awarded annually on the basis of outstanding experimental or theoretical contributions to condensed matter physics. An eligible candidate must have performed their research primarily with a Canadian Institution.
