Institute of Physics awards

Our medal portfolio spans all areas of physics, as well as contributions made to physics outreach, physics education, the application of physics and physics-based technologies.

It is our aim to identify and honour physicists who are today making remarkable contributions and to encourage younger members of our community to greater success in the future. 

The process of identification increases the sense of community within our Institute and the celebration of these accomplishments serves to raise the profile of physics internationally.
