Jeremy Hutson

Professor Jeremy Hutson FRS


Elected: 2010





Jeremy Hutson is a chemical and molecular physicist best known for his pioneering work on intramolecular forces, particularly using the spectroscopy of Van der Waals complexes.

He now focuses on the study of cold and ultracold molecules in the regime below 1 millikelvin — temperatures at which all motion is fully quantum mechanical and molecular collisions can be manipulated with electromagnetic fields. His particular areas of interest include the study of ultracold alkali metal dimers, sympathetic cooling and identifying novel properties of ultracold molecules.

Jeremy has received a number of awards in recognition of his work, including the Corday–Morgan Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) in 1991 and the Humboldt Research Award in 2010. In addition to being a Fellow of the Royal Society, he is also a Fellow of the RSC and the Institute of Physics, as well as being a Member of the European Physical Society.
