Young Scientist Award of the Physical Society of Japan

Every year, the Physical Society of Japan presents Young Scientist Awards to young researchers who have made outstanding achievements in their early research careers. This year's winners were recently decided by the board of directors of the JPS according to the recommendations from the selection committees established in 19 divisions of the JPS. The maximum number of winners from each division has been determined based on the number of talks given at the Annual Meetings in the past three years. All the winners are to give an award lecture at the next Annual Meeting of the JPS scheduled for March 2019. Here is the list of winners and their research topics.
