Divisions: Condensed Matter Division
Group Pages

The Condensed Matter Division (CMD) of the European Physical Society, aims to serve its scientific, industrial and educational communities by helping them to obtain the latest information on progress in their specialties and related fields, to gain visibility for their research, to help them interact with their peers and to develop professionally.

The Condensed Matter Division includes several sections focused on specific areas of condensed matter physics:

Macromolecular Physics
Structural And Dynamical Properties Of Solids
Semiconductors And Insulators
Surfaces And Interfaces

A major activity of CMD and its sections is the organization of quality peer-reviewed conferences and scientific meetings, including the biennial EPS CMD conference, as well as several other major European conferences.

To highlight scientific excellence, CMD also awards the prestigious EPS Europhysics Prize for Outstanding Achievement in Condensed Matter Physics. This prize (formerly the Hewlett Packard and then Agilent Technologies Europhysics Award) has been presented since 1975, and has become one of the most prestigious awards for condensed matter physics in Europe. Many Europhysics Prize winners have subsequently been awarded the Nobel Prize in recognition of their achievements, including in 2007 the Nobel Prize winners both in Physics (Albert Fert and Peter Grünberg) and in Chemistry (Gerhard Ertl).
