The EPS Prize for Research into the Science of Light is a major prize awarded in recognition of a recent work by one or more (up to three) individuals for scientific excellence in the area of electromagnetic science in its broadest sense, across the entire spectrum of electromagnetic waves.
The work for which the individual(s) is/are nominated must be such that a significant component of it was performed during the 5 years prior to the award. In addition, the award recognises research for which a significant portion of the work was carried out in Europe or in cooperation with European researchers. It may be given for either pure or applied research.
The award will be accompanied by an engraved glass medal, a certificate, and a monetary sum of 2000 euros.
