Young Scientist Award of the Physical Society of Japan, 2020

Since 2007, the Physical Society of Japan (JPS) presents Young Scientist Awards to young researchers who have made outstanding achievements early in their research careers. This year's winners were recently chosen by the board of directors of the JPS, using recommendations from selection committees established in 19 divisions of the JPS. The maximum number of winners from each division was determined based on the number of talks given in a division's subject area, within the past three years, at the Annual Meetings of the JPS. The winners will give, respectively, an award lecture at the next Annual Meeting of the JPS, which is scheduled in March 2020. Here is the list of winners and their research topics.
