Kavli Medal and Lecture winner 2017
The Kavli Medal and Lecture is awarded to Professor Henry Snaith FRS for his discovery and development of highly efficient perovskite solar cells which promise to dramatically increase the efficiency and reduce the cost of solar energy.
Professor Snaith will be awarded a medal of bronze gilt, and a gift of £1,000 at the associated lecture in April 2017.
The Kavli Medal and Lecture is awarded biennially (in odd years) for excellence in all fields of science and engineering relevant to the environment or energy.
The next call for nominations opens in November 2017.
Professor Matt King has been awarded the Kavli Medal and Lecture in 2015 for his research in field glaciology leading to the first reconciled estimate of ice sheet contribution to sea level.
Professor Neil Greenham was awarded the Kavli Medal and Lecture in 2013 in recognition of his exceptional work on hybrid materials combining polymer semiconductors with inorganic nanoparticles, and their use in printable solar cells.
