Dr Owen Saxton, who has worked closely with many of members of the Electron Microscopy group over many years as a 'Senior Affiliate' of the Department, has been awarded the Lord Rayleigh Medal and Prize from the Institute of Physics.  This is to recognise his contributions to the Gerchberg-Saxton computer algorithm, decades ahead of its time but now prevalent in phase retrieval, and for his foundational image processing programs, still influential in front line electron microscopy.
