The Michael Faraday Medal and Prize is a prize awarded annually by the Institute of Physics in experimental physics, one of the Institute's Gold medals.[1] The award is made "for outstanding and sustained contributions to experimental physics." The medal is gold and accompanied by a prize of £1000 and a certificate.[2]

Michael Faraday
(1791 - 1867)

Historical development[edit]

  • 1914-1965 Guthrie Lecture initiated to remember Frederick Guthrie[3], founder of the Physical Society (which merged with the Institute of Physics in 1960).
  • 1966-2007 Guthrie Medal and Prize (in response to changed conditions from when the lecture was first established). From 1992, it became one of the Institute's Premier Awards.
  • 2008-present Michael Faraday Medal and Prize
