143. 2007 Mott medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
During the last three years Andre Geim and his colleagues have opened up a new field of condensed-matter physics by discovering a conceptually new class of materials – strictly two dimensional atomic crystals. Geim and colleagues have proven this in a series of elaborate experiments where two new types of the quantum Hall effect (dubbed as half-integer and chiral) and the minimum (or Mott’s) quantum conductivity in the limit of no charge carriers were reported. Geim works ...

145. 2009 Mott medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
Gillian Gehring is distinguished as an international research leader in magnetism. Linear Birefringence is one of the most accurate methods to study distortions in transparent crystals and Gehring gave the first microscopic theory of this effect, first for Jahn Teller transitions and then more generally for magnetic transitions. Gehring was the first to derive a theory that unified the domains that form in ferromagnetic systems below the phase transition with the critical fluctuations above ...

147. 2009 Joule medal and prize (Score: 1.0000)
Jenny Nelson has made outstanding theoretical contributions to the field of photovoltaics (PV) which have strongly influenced the design and development of a variety of PV devices. Her work has led to solar cell designs that have enhanced the efficiency of solar to electric power conversion and others that could lead to significant cost reductions in the cost of solar cell manufacture. As an EPSRC Advanced Fellow she focused on the development of radically lower cost PV materials, addressing ...
