Awardee: Prof. Adalberto Giazotto

INFN Pisa (Italy)

Motivation: "For Dr. Giazotto lifelong work in the field of gravitational waves that has been fundamental in the design and construction of the new generation of detectors. He firstly realised that it was possible to filter noise at low frequencies, and he developed a fundamental component of the experiments: the “Super Attenuator,” which has been crucial in the observation of a gravitational signal interpretable as the coalescence of two black holes
