The Fritz London Prize 2011

is happy to hear the Fritz London Prize - highest award in low temperature physics after the nobel - is awarded to Hans Mooij in recognition for his experimental contributions to the understanding of nonequilibrium superconductivity, Josephson flux qubits, etc; at the same time to Gerd Schön in recognition of his theoretical contributions to the understanding of superconductivity in mesoscopic systems, including charge qubit; as well as to Humphrey Maris in recognition for his original theories and experimental discoveries in liquid helium, concerning phonons, Kapitza resistance, levitation, nucleation, electron bubbles and vortex imaging.
