John S. Waugh
John S. Waugh (born 1929) is an American chemist and Institute Professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He is the author of ANTIOPE, a freeware general purpose Windows-based simulator of the spectra and dynamics of nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR). He has also used systems of a few coupled spins to illustrate the general requirements for equilibrium and ergodicity in isolated systems.
Additional recommended knowledge
In 1974 Waugh was elected as a member of the National Academy of Sciences (NAS), in the Chemistry section.
Waugh was awarded the Wolf Prize in Chemistry for 1983/84, a prestigious international prize bestowed by the Wolf Foundation. He shared in the prize with two other US-based researchers working (independently) in the field of NMR spectroscopy, Herbert S. Gutowsky and Harden M. McConnell.
According to the citation accompanying the prize, the committee selected Waugh "for his fundamental theoretical and experimental contributions to high resolution nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy in solids."
