17.07.10. UCL wins big at Institute of Physics awards

UCL staff have secured a quartet of major prizes at the annual awards of the Institute of Physics. Professor Steve Bramwell (UCL Physics & Astronomy and the London Centre for Nanotechnology) won the Holweck medal and prize for his pioneering work on 'magnetricity', the term for magnetic charges that behave and interact just like electric charges in some materials. Professor Tom Duke (UCL Physics & Astronomy and the London Centre for Nanotechnology) won the Franklin medal and prize for 'the application of physical principles to the development of elegant molecular sorting devices, for providing new insights into the organising principles of cells and for his primary contributions to a new generation of theories of how the inner ear works'.
