Professor Bernhard Keimer

Bernhard Keimer will receive the prize named after Heike Kamerlingh Onnes (https://kamerlingh-onnes-prize.ch), the Dutch physicist who discovered superconductivity in 1911, at the M2S conference in Vancouver in July 2022 (https://www.m2s-2022.com). He will be recognized for "illuminating neutron and X-ray scattering experiments revealing resonant magnetic excitations and ordering phenomena in cuprate superconductors". Two co-awardees will also be recognized for scattering experiments on superconductors: Giacomo Ghiringhelli (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) and Pengcheng Dai (Rice University, USA). Hidenori Takagi, then at the University of Tokyo, received the Kamerlingh Onnes Prize in 2006 for "pioneering and seminal transport experiments which illuminated the unconventional nature of the metallic state of high temperature superconducting cuprates".

Dieser Preis ist nach dem niederländischen Physiker Heike Kamerlingh Onnes benannt, der 1911 die Supraleitung entdeckte. Professor Keimer wird ausgezeichnet für "illuminating neutron and X-ray scattering experiments revealing resonant magnetic excitations and ordering phenomena in cuprate superconductors". Außerdem werden zwei Co-Preisträger für Streuexperimente an Supraleitern ausgezeichnet: Giacomo Ghiringhelli (Politecnico di Milano, Italien) und Pengcheng Dai (Rice University, USA). Hidenori Takagi, damals an der Universität Tokio, erhielt 2006 den Kamerlingh Onnes-Preis für "pioneering and seminal transport experiments which illuminated the unconventional nature of the metallic state of high temperature superconducting cuprates".

 


The Heike Kamerlingh Onnes Prize was established in 2000 by the organizers of the "International Conference on Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity (M2S)" and is sponsored by Elsevier, Publisher of Physica C – Superconductivity and its Applications. The Prize, consisting of 7500 €, is awarded every 3 years and recognizes outstanding experiments which illuminate the nature of superconductivity other than materials.

Der Heike Kamerlingh Onnes-Preis wurde im Jahr 2000 von den Organisatoren der "International Conference on Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity (M2S)" ins Leben gerufen und wird alle 3 Jahre an Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler für herausragende Experimente auf dem Gebiet der Supraleitung verliehen. Der Preis ist mit 7500 € dotiert und wird von Elsevier, dem Herausgeber der Zeitschrift Physica C – Superconductivity and its Applications gesponsert.
