Candidates sought for Ernst Ruska Prize and Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture 2023

The German Society for Electron Microscopy is seeking candidates for the Ernst Ruska Prize 2023 and the Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture 2023.

Ernst Ruska Prize 2023 - for outstanding achievements in the field of electron microscopy 

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Elektronenmikroskopie invites the proposal of candidates for the Ernst-Ruska-Prize 2023. The prize is awarded for work carried out by preferably younger scientists pioneering new capabilities of electron microscopy as a scientific technique through innovative instrumentation or novel methods of basic and general interest. Work carried out by pure application of existing techniques will not be considered. The eligible work should not date back more than seven years. It must be either published or accepted for publication at the time of submission of the proposal. 

The decision will be made by the independent Ernst-Ruska-Prize Committee. The Ernst-Ruska-Prize consists of a certificate, a financial award, as well as the honour of giving an Ernst Ruska Distinguished Lecture at the Ceremony of Award. If a group of authors receives the award, they will be awarded jointly. The ceremony will take place at the Microscopy Conference MC2023 in Darmstadt, Germany, 26 February to 2 March 2023. 

Proposals including appraisal of the achievement, reprints or preprints, and short CV including list of publications of the authors should be received in electronic version not later than 30 June, 2022, addressed to President of DGE Prof. Dr. Peter A. van Aken Stuttgart Center for Electron Microscopy (StEM) Max-Planck-Institute for Solid State Research Heisenbergstraße 1 70569 Stuttgart, GERMANY E-mail: p.vanaken (at) fkf.mpg.de


Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture 2023 - for outstanding achievements in the field of particle optics 

The German Society for Electron Microscopy invites the international community to propose candidates for the Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture. The prize is awarded to one person for her/his outstanding work which is still pursued today. The aim of the prize is to celebrate the work of Harald Rose. Therefore the work should cover the field of particle optics, preferentially the realm of electron microscopy. This includes work on image formation and/or energy filtering. Due to Rose's commitment to teaching, candidates who have developed new teaching concepts for topics in these fields will also be considered. There is no limitation concerning the scientific field (life science, physics, chemistry, materials science, instrumentation etc.) nor the age of the awardee. In general the work must be published.


The decision will be made by an independent committee. The awardee receives a certificate, a financial award, and the honor of giving a Harald Rose Distinguished Lecture as a plenary talk. The ceremony will take place at the Microscopy Conference 2023 in Darmstadt, Germany, Feb. 26th - March 2nd, 2023.


Proposals including appraisal of the achievement, reprints or preprints, and short CV including list of publications of the authors should be received in electronic version not later than Sept. 30th, 2022, addressed to
