Prof. Giacomo Ghiringhelli, head of our group, has received the prestigious Kamerlingh-Onnes prize, for his experiments determining spin and charge correlations in high temperature superconductors using x-ray and neutron scattering. In particular, Prof. Ghiringhelli has been awarded for «pioneering resonant inelastic X-ray scattering (RIXS) experiments on cuprate 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. It is awarded every three years to scientists which performed «outstanding experiments which illuminate the nature of superconductivity other than materials».

The prize ceremony was held on July 19 2022, during the M2S-2022 conference in Vancouver.
