The EMFL Prize 2017 went to Sven Badoux from the Physics department at the Université de Sherbrooke (CA). He was awarded for his outstanding research on "Transport signatures of the pseudogap critical point in cuprate superconductors" using high magnetic fields.
Since 2009, the EMFL Prize (2009 - 2012: EuroMagNET Prize) has been awarded annually for outstanding achievements in science in high magnetic fields. The next awarding ceremony will take place during the EMFL User Meeting 2018.
