The Aminoff prize is awarded in the name of Professor Gregori Aminoff (1883-1947), a descendent of a Russian officer who joined the Swedish army in 1612. Aminoff had two quite different careers-one as an artist and the other as a scientist. In his scientific career, Aminoff was a pioneer in the application of both x-ray diffraction and electron diffraction. His interest was the investigation of the crystal structures of a large number of minerals, and in particular those from Langban in Varmland, Sweden. The Aminoff prize, which has been awarded since 1979, rewards outstanding work in crystallography to both Swedish and foreign researchers. Some preference should be shown for work evincing elegance in the approach to the problem.
