The 2022 EPS Condensed Matter Division (CMD) Europhysics Prize has been awarded to Prof. Agnès Barthélémy and Dr. Manuel Bibes (CNRS/Thales laboratory of University Paris-Saclay), Prof. Ramamoorthy Ramesh (UC Berkeley) and Prof. Nicola Spaldin (ETH Zurich) for seminal contributions to the physics and applications of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials.

The 2022 EPS Condensed Matter Division (CMD) Europhysics Prize has been awarded to Prof. Agnès Barthélémy and Dr. Manuel Bibes (CNRS/Thales laboratory of University Paris-Saclay), Prof. Ramamoorthy Ramesh (UC Berkeley) and Prof. Nicola Spaldin (ETH Zurich) for seminal contributions to the physics and applications of multiferroic and magnetoelectric materials. The long citation can be found here. The selection committee (balanced in gender, research topic and country of work) had a very difficult task due to the high quality of the 13 proposals submitted.


The Prize will be presented on Wednesday August 24th 2022, during the Awards Session of the 29th General Conference of the EPS Condensed Matter Division (CMD29), to be held in Manchester (joint organization with Institute of Physics, UK). This prize has been awarded since 1975 (this is the 39th edition) and is one of Europe’s most prestigious prizes in the field of condensed matter physics. It is given in recognition of a prominent and well-identifiable discovery, breakthrough, or contribution to condensed matter physics, by one or more individuals, contribution that, in the opinion of the selection committee, represents scientific excellence. The award recognises research for which a significant portion of the work was carried out in Europe. A summary of all the prize editions can be found here. We hope that you can come to Manchester and join the four winners, who have confirmed its presence in the ceremony to be held on August 24th and in the subsequent conference dinner.
