Date Announced: 28 Oct 2022
London, UK – 24 October, 2022 – The UK Institute of Physics has named the winners of the 2022 Institute of Physics Awards. Over the next week each winner will be individually celebrated on our Twitter stream @PhysicsNews but as of this morning they are all now available to view on our webpage.
The IOP Awards celebrate the excellence which we know is everywhere in physics – in research, education, outreach and application; in people at all stages of their careers; in all parts of the UK and Ireland and internationally.
And they celebrate people at every stage of their career, from those just starting out through to those at their peak.
IOP President, Sheila Rowan, CBE, said: “On behalf of the IOP, I warmly congratulate this year’s Award winners. Each and every one of them has made a significant and positive impact in their profession, whether as a researcher, teacher, industrialist, technician or apprentice.”
Several of the winners work in optics and photonics – or have strong connections to these disciplines:
The Isaac Newton Medal and Prize is for world-leading contributions to physics by an individual of any nationality.
Professor Margaret Murnane receives the medal and prize for pioneering and sustained contributions to the development of ultrafast lasers and coherent X-ray sources and the use of such sources to understand the quantum nature of materials.
Our Gold Medals recognise outstanding and sustained contributions by physicists of international renown to a wide range of physics.
Our Silver Subject Medals are awarded annually to recognise and reward distinguished contributions to physics.
