Two physicists working as part of the MacArthur-supported Princeton Program on Science and Global Security's Project on Peace and Security in South Asia have won the American Physical Society's 2014 Leo Szilard Award. Dr. M.V. Ramana, physicist and lecturer at Princeton, and Dr. R. Rajaraman, professor emeritus in the Department of Physics at Delhi's Jawaharla Nehru University, received the award for promoting global security issues through critical analyses of nuclear weapons and nuclear energy programs in India. The annual award was established in 1974 by the Forum on Physics and Society and was endowed in 1998 in part by the MacArthur Foundation.
