ICTP has awarded its 2018 ICTP Prize to Luis E.F. Foà Torres of the University of Chile, Santiago, Chile, and to Hongjun Xiang of Fudan University, Shanghai, China. The Prize recognizes their independent contributions to the theoretical advancement of condensed matter physics of modern solid-state materials, including low dimensional and nanoscale systems. Each year, the ICTP Prize is given in honor of a scientist who has made outstanding contributions to the field in which the prize is given. The 2018 ICTP Prize is given in honour of Kun Huang (1919-2005), the renowned theoretical physicist who is a father of condensed matter and semiconductor physics in China. Huang had been a student of Nevill Mott at Bristol University and a postdoc of Nobel Laureate Max Born at Liverpool University before returning to China in 1951.
