Winners of the 2022 Kamerlingh-Onnes Prize

Prof. Bernhard Keimer (Max Planck Institute for Solid State Research, Stuttgart, Germany), Prof. Giacomo Ghiringhelli (Politecnico di Milano, Italy) and Prof. Pengcheng Dai  (Rice University, Houston, USA) shared the 2022 Kamerlingh-Onnes Prize  « for experiments determining spin and charge correlations in high temperature superconductors using x-ray and neutron scattering. »

Citation Bernhard Keimer: For illuminating neutron and X-ray scattering experiments revealing resonant magnetic excitations and ordering phenomena in cuprate superconductors

Citation Giacomo Ghiringhelli: For pioneering resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) experiments on cuprate superconductors 

Citation Pengcheng Dai: For seminal contributions elucidating the magnetic properties of cuprate and iron-based superconductors

The Heike Kamerlingh Onnes Prize was established in 2000 by the organizers of the International Conference on the Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity (M2S) and is sponsored by Elsevier, Publisher of Physica C – Superconductivity and its Applications. The Prize, consisting of 7500 € and a certificate, recognizes outstanding experiments which illuminate the nature of superconductivity other than materials and has been awarded during the M2S-2022 meeting in Vancouver, July 17-22, 2022.
