Kamerlingh Onnes Prize - M2S-HTSC-IX
Kamerlingh Onnes Prize - M2S-HTSC-IX (7-12 September, 2009,Tokyo)
The prize committee of the M2S-HTSC IX (Chair P. Kes, Leiden) is privileged to present the H. Kamerlingh Onnes Prize to J.C. Seamus Davis (Cornell University, and Brookhaven National Laboratory), Aharon Kapitulnik (Stanford University), and John Tranquada (Brookhaven National Laboratory) for pioneering and seminal experiments which illuminate the nature of superconductivity in strongly correlated electron systems:
J.C. Seamus Davis "for pushing the limits of spectroscopic imaging scanning tunneling microscopy at low temperatures and applying it to pioneering studies of the cuprate high temperature superconductors"
Aharon Kapitulnik "for seminal studies of time-reversal-symmetry breaking effects in unconventional superconductors using magneto optics"
John M. Tranquada "for pioneering neutron scattering experiments leading to the discovery of the stripe phases in the cuprate high temperature superconductors"
