Elsevier Physics Prizes, Awards and Medals
We believe in being part of the community in which we publish by recognizing outstanding scientists within the field and providing support to societies and young scientists. Here are the initiatives that our Physics journals directly sponsor:
Kai Siegbahn Prize: The Prize, established in honor of the founder of Nuclear Instruments and Methods A, will be awarded every two years and carries a €3,000 prize plus a travel allowance to the meeting at which the prize is awarded and a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient. To recognize and encourage outstanding experimental achievement in synchrotron radiation research with a significant component of instrument development. Particular preference will be given to the development of synchrotron radiation spectroscopies.
Frank Isakson Prize: This award recognizes outstanding optical research that leads to breakthroughs in the condensed matter sciences. The prize is awarded biennially in even-numbered years as a memorial to Frank Isakson. Supported by the journal Solid State Communications.
Kamerlingh Onnes Prize: The Kamerlingh Onnes Prize for Superconductivity Experiments is awarded every 3 years during the M2S-HTSC conference for outstanding experiments which illuminate the nature of Superconductivity other than materials. Supported by Physica C – Superconductivity and its Applications.
Schieber Prize: The International Organization for Crystal Growth Schieber Prize, sponsored by the Journal of Crystal Growth is awarded to a young author to recognize his or her outstanding scientific publications in the field of Crystal Growth. The prize consists of travel and accommodation expenses (to a maximum of USD5000) to the ICCG conference and a certificate citing the contributions made by the recipient. The prize is awarded every 3 years during the ICCG conference
ICL Prize: All workers in the field of luminescence are eligible to be considered for the Prize. The award will recognize the accomplishments of an individual in theory, experiment, or in applications. The contributions must have had a recognizable impact on the science and technology of light emissive properties and materials. No time limitations are placed on the work to be cited. Supported by Journal of Luminescence.
Physica Prize: Annually during the Physica lecture to a prominent Physicist promoting Dutch Physics. Awarded by the NNV and the Stichting Physica, through royalties from the journals Physica A - E.
Cryogenics Best Paper Award
Frans Habraken Best Paper Award
To recognize one young scientist for his or her outstanding research in surface science. The journal Applied Surface Science is the official donor of the award, through Elsevier. The prize consists of a certificate and €1,000. The prize is awarded every year
Gerhard Ertl Young Investigator Award: To recognize one individual for his or her outstanding research in surface science. The journal Surface Science is the official donor of the award, through Elsevier. The prize consists of a certificate and €5,000. The prize is awarded every year by the DPG Surface Science Division at the DPG Spring Conference.
JARI Enterprise Award: The JARI Medal, first given in 1980 by the journal Applied Radiation and Isotopes, recognizes a senior scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the field of Radiation Physics.
Nicholas Metropolis Award: To recognize doctoral thesis research of outstanding quality and achievement in computational physics and to encourage effective written and oral presentation of research results. The award is supported by the Journal of Computational Physics.
Nuclear Instruments and Methods A: Young Scientist Award
Nuclear Physics A: Young Scientist Award consisting of an award certificate and a monetary remuneration, has been created to honor young researchers for the best poster and best oral presentation. There will be two awards for each category,
Photonics and Nanostructures – Fundamentals and Applications: Young Scientist Award: Qualifications for the award include: awardees are under 40 years of age, have published a paper in PNFA, and have not been a previous award winner. The final selection will be determined by the number of citations received for the paper published in PNFA by the nominee.
