The Zener Prize (also known as the Zener Gold Medal) is an international award bestowed in recognition of groundbreaking scientific discoveries within the fields of materials science and physics, with an emphasis on applications in mechanical spectroscopy and internal friction. Formerly named the ICIFUAS Prize (1965-1989), the Zener Prize was established in honor of the pioneering work on anelasticity by Clarence Zener († 2 July, 1993). The Zener Prize is presented by the Chancellery of the Zener Prize, which is chaired by the Chairman of the International Conference on Internal Friction and Mechanical Spectroscopy, ICIFMS, formerly the International Conference on Internal Friction and Ultrasonic Attenuation in Solids, ICIFUAS (1956-2002).
The Zener Prize, considered one of the most prestigious in materials science, may be awarded in recognition of an impactful individual discovery or for a substantial contribution to the fields of materials science and materials physics through a cumulative lifetime body of work. The Prize has been awarded to 23 individuals as of 2017. Each laureate of the Zener Prize receives a Zener Gold Medal and a diploma. Zener Gold Medal is struck in 20 karat gold and features a right profile image of Clarence Zener on the front side. The Zener Prize is not awarded posthumously.
Announcement of the 2017 Zener Prize
The Zener Prize was awarded to Leszek Bogumił Magalas for his paradigm-shifting research on mechanical spectroscopy of solids. Professor Leszek Bogumił Magalas resides at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków, Poland.
