The Quantum Electronics and Optics Division (QEOD) of EPS is delighted to announce that Prof. Albert Polman has been elected the winner of the 2017 prize for Research into the Science of Light “for mastering light at the nanoscale and for demonstrating novel applications in nanoscale optical circuits, photovoltaics, and super-resolution imaging”. The prize will be awarded at the forthcoming 6th International Topical Meeting on Nanophotonics and Metamaterials (Nanometa) to be held in Seefeld, Austria from January 4-7, 2017.
The biennial conference of the Condensed Matter Division [CMD] convened from 4-9 September 2016 in the historic northern Dutch city of Groningen.
The 2016 Young Scientist Prize of the Atomic, Molecular and Optical Physics Division has been awarded to Dr. Christian Brand from the University of Vienna (Austria) for his outstanding contribution to “matter-wave experiments with complex molecules”.
The Lise Meitner Prize is awarded biennially by the European Physical Society (EPS) for outstanding work in the fields of experimental, theoretical or applied nuclear science.
The 2016 Prize Laureate is: Prof. Ulf-G. Meißner, Universität Bonn and Forschungszentrum in Jülich, Germany
The EPS Plasma Physics Division (EPS PPD) recognises outstanding research in plasma physics with several prizes.
The European Physical Society Condensed Matter Division is proud to announce that the 2016 EPS CMD Europhysics Prize is awarded to P. Böni, A.N. Bogdanov, C. Pfleiderer, A. Rosch, and A. Vishwanath “for the theoretical prediction, the experimental discovery and the theoretical analysis of a magnetic skyrmion phase in MnSi, a new state of matter”.
The European Physical Society [EPS], the Centro di Cultura Scientifica Alessandro Volta and Edison S.p.A. are delighted to announce the award of the 2016 EPS Edison Volta Prize for outstanding contributions to physics to …
The 2016 Hermann Weyl Prize has been awarded to Vasily Pestun of the Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (France) for his ground breaking results in the study of supersymmetric gauge theories, such as his ingenious computation of partition functions that led to the discovery of rich connections between four-dimensional and two-dimensional quantum field theories.
It is a great pleasure to announce that the Autumn-Winter 2015 EPS Emmy Noether Distinction for Women in Physics has been awarded to Prof. Sibylle Guenter from the Max-Planck Institute for Plasma Physics [IPP] in Garching, Germany. Sibylle is one of the leading theoretical physicists in the field of magnetic fusion plasmas.
Calls for nominations are still open for the following EPS distinctions and prizes:
