The International Board on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect recently granted its 2017 Science Award to Dr. Gary J. Long. Long is a professor of chemistry and has served on S&T’s faculty since 1968. He received the award in recognition of his “high-level works and outstanding contributions to physical chemistry and chemical physics using the Mössbauer effect.”

Long was presented the award at the 2017 International Conference on the Applications of the Mössbauer Effect in St. Petersburg, Russia, in September. He delivered an award address, titled “The Pivotal Role of Mössbauer Spectroscopy in Characterizing Prussian Blue and its Pigments.”

Long has served as the director of Missouri S&T’s Mössbauer Effect Laboratory, which has published more research papers in the field of Mössbauer spectroscopy than any other academic institution in the U.S. during the previous 40 years.

Many undergraduate and graduate students have helped assist with Long’s contributions to this area of study. During the past 50 years, Long has published approximately 400 papers in scientific journals, 10 books and 25 book chapters.
