In a regular session of the Scientific Council of the Institute of Physics held on Tuesday, 31 August, the 2020 and 2021 annual prizes of the Institute were awarded. A jury that included Dr Marija Mitrović Dankulov, Dr Brainslav Cvetković and Dr Nenad Vranješ addressed the audience and announced the winners in a ceremonial part of the session. Dr Vraneš reminded the audience that the last year prize was postponed due to unique work conditions caused by the pandemic, therefore this year the prize was awarded for the previous year too. On behalf of the jury, he complimented all the proposed candidates.

The Annual Prize for 2020 was unanimously awarded to Dr Igor Franović for his significant contribution to the development of physics of complex systems, non-linear dynamics and statistical physics. The prize consists of a certificate of achievement, a diploma and a sum of money equivalent to three average salaries at the Institute (RSD 360,000).

The Student Prizes were also traditionally awarded, and out of three candidates, the jury decided to award Dr Miljan Dašić for his doctoral dissertation titled ’Modeling the Behaviour of Confined Dipolar and Ionic Systems’. The prize consists of a certificate of achievement, a diploma and a sum of money equivalent to one average salary at the Institute.

The jury awarded the Annual Prize for 2021 to Dr Nenad Lazarević for his significant contribution to the understanding of the complex interplay of phonon, electronic and magnetic degrees of freedom in iron-based superconductors. The prize consists of a certificate of achievement, a diploma and a sum of money equivalent to three average salaries at the Institute.

Dr Jadranka Vasiljević received the Student Prize for 2021 for her doctoral dissertation titled ’ Propagation, Localization and Control of Light in Mathieu Lattices’. The prize consists of a certificate of achievement, a diploma and a sum of money equivalent to one average salary at the Institute.

Further, at the ceremony, the laureates Dr Franović and Dr Lazarević held short presentations on their work and some of the recent significant research results.
