  • Carl Lineberger Wins NAS Award in Chemical Sciences | JILA-PFC
    Professor of Chemistry and Biochemistry at the University of Colorado Boulder and a Fellow of JILA The award is presented with a medal and a 15 000 cash prize Lineberger developed negative ion photoelectron spectroscopy Scientists can use this technique to determine the electron affinity of the neutral version of an atom or molecule Electron affinity the change in energy that occurs when an electron is added to an atom or molecule provides important information about atoms and molecules and how they interact in chemical reactions The periodic table of atomic electronic affinities now included in general chemistry textbooks is founded on Lineberger s early work with negative ion photoelectron spectroscopy His development of anion photoelectron spectroscopy as a tool to study small molecules has provided both an important method to characterize highly reactive short lived species known as free radicals as well as a new direct way to observe the structure and evolution of molecules in the process of undergoing a chemical reaction Lineberger s experimental methods are now in widespread use in laboratories worldwide The NAS Award in Chemical Sciences was first awarded in 1979 to Linus Pauling for his studies which elucidated in structural terms the properties
