Meanwhile, we have relationships with many schools and teachers through our education programmes, but teachers currently represent only 1% of our 50,000-strong membership. The Institute believes that teaching physics is doing physics, and teachers are just as much a part of the physics community as are our members from industry or academia. Developing a professional-development structure for teachers should go a long way to improving this and adding more value to IOP membership for teachers.
3. 2015 Young Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Nikolay Zheludev, University of Southampton, for global leadership and pioneering, seminal work in optical metamaterials and nanophoton . Nikolay Zheludev is one of the founding members, global leaders and pioneers of nanophotonics and metamaterials ' fields that have revolutionised optics in the last few years. Zheludev's work impacts on the development of high-bandwidth, low-intensity optical switching, dispersion control, data processing and optical data storage devices, ...
4. 2015 Tabor Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Geoffrey Thornton, University College London, for his contributions to understanding the physics and chemistry of oxide surfaces, using both scanned-probe and reciprocal-space techniques. His group's seminal paper in 1995 on what has become the model oxide surface, TiO2 (110), described all the major elements present on that surface as a function of O vacancy density. Defects on oxide surfaces have long been thought to be involved in determining their reactivity; by monitoring the...
5. 2015 Rayleigh Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Christopher Pickard, University College London, for his development of new theories and computational tools for the first principles investigation of matter, which have greatly aided the interpretation of magnetic resonance experiments, have revealed a range of unexpected phenomena in materials at extreme pressures, and increasingly underpin computational materials discovery. Close collaboration between theory and experiment has also inspired Pickard's innovative techniques for ...
6. The Payne-Gaposchkin medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Valery Nakariakov, University of Warwick, for his leadership and major contribution to the discovery of magnetohydrodynamic (MHD) activity of the solar corona, which led to transformative changes in our understanding of the solar atmosphere, and to the creation and successful implementation of a new branch of solar physics, MHD coronal seismology. Valery Nakariakov is a brilliant solar physicist, a truly exceptional scientist who has revolutionised our understanding of the Sun. The ...
7. 2015 Mott Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor John Saunders, Royal Holloway, University of London, for ground-breaking studies at the frontiers of ultra-low temperature physics. John Saunders is a pioneer in the study of helium films at ultra-low temperatures as model systems for strongly-correlated quantum matter and topological superconductivity. By using single layer He-3 films it was possible experimentally to verify Mott's 1949 prediction that fermions localise under the influence of strong local interactions, observing ...
8. 2015 Joule Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Judith Driscoll, University of Cambridge, for her pioneering contributions to the understanding and enhancement of critical physical properties of strongly-correlated oxides, encompassing oxide superconductors, ferroelectrics, multiferroics and semiconductors. Notably, Driscoll's 'nanotechnology in a thin film' approach has provided a new route to high-performance electronic materials with outstanding property enhancements. Driscoll's international leadership in ...
9. 2015 Chadwick Medal and Prize (Score: 1.0000)
Amanda Cooper-Sarkar is one of the world's most distinguished high energy physicists working in the area of deep inelastic scattering experiments. Deep Inelastic Scattering (DIS) is analogous to the use of an electron microscope. She plays a leading role in the ATLAS groups at CERN that are making new measurements of the proton structure function, thereby ensuring that new generations are able to use the techniques that she has devised to make improved measurements of the proton structure ...
10. 2015 Kelvin medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
Professor Christopher Lintott, University of Oxford, for his major contributions to public engagement with science through conventional media (especially through television) and by leading citizen science projects through Zooniverse, opening a new chapter in the history of science by enabling hundreds of thousands of people to participate in the process of scientific discovery. Chris Lintott is the principal investigator behind the Zooniverse project, the world's most successful and ...
