At the ceremony, the 22nd (2020) Sir Martin Wood Prize was awarded to Dr. Takeshi Kondo from the University of Tokyo (ISSP). The prize was awarded in recognition of his research into “Identification of electronic states of high-temperature copper oxide superconductors by advanced angle-resolved photoemission spectroscopy”.
