Herbert A. Mook, Jr., has received the Clifford G. Shull Prize from the Neutron Scattering Society of America for his "outstanding contributions to the study of magnetism, superconductivity, and quantum phenomena in matter with neutrons." Since 1965, Mook has spent his career at ORNL, where he has expanded his neutron scattering research to investigate the interaction of magnetism and superconductivity. Among Mook's diverse range of experiments utilizing neutrons, he and collaborators have studied the nature of the magnetic structure and fluctuations in high-temperature superconductors using ORNL's High Flux Isotope Reactor.
