The European Physical Society have announced that two members of the Cavendish Laboratory have been awarded the 2017 EPS Early Career Prizes:

  •  Dr Sam Stranks, a Royal Society University Research Fellow in the Optoelectronics Group for his "for his seminal contributions to optical and electronic properties of hybrid perovskites, for their use in high-performance, low-cost photovoltaics and broader optoelectronic applications."
  • Dr Jo Paddison in the Theory of Condensed Matter Group "for his extraordinary work to achieve understanding of the microscopic nature of complex magnetic states."

EPS Early Career Prizes recognise talented researchers who have made substantial  contributions to the development or reputation of physics in Europe. “Early Career” is defined as those  individuals  in  the  first  12  years  of  their  career  in  physics  following  their first degree or equivalent, with allowance for any career breaks.
