Professor Vlad Pribiag was named as a recipient of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics Young scientist prize in Low Temperature Physics for 2017. He will be presented with the prize at the International Low Temperature Physics Conference in Gothenburg Sweden this August.

Pribiag was cited "for his important contributions to two main areas of low temperature and nanoscale physics: superconductivity in the edge modes of two-dimensional topological insulators; spin-dependent quantum transport in one-dimensional semiconductors with strong spin-orbit coupling. His results have elucidated key aspects of the electronic properties of these novel materials, which are candidates for quantum and classical information processing."

The prize consists of a certificate, medal and a monetary award.
