Guthrie Medal and Prize
The Michael Faraday Medal and Prize is a prize awarded annually by the Institute of Physics in experimental physics, one of the Institute's Gold medals. The award is made "for outstanding and sustained contributions to experimental physics." The medal is gold and accompanied by a prize of £1000 and a certificate.
- 1914-1965 Guthrie Lecture initiated to remember Frederick Guthrie, founder of the Physical Society (which merged with the Institute of Physics in 1960).
- 1966-2007 Guthrie Medal and Prize (in response to changed conditions from when the lecture was first established). From 1992, it became one of the Institute's Premier Awards.
- 2008-present Michael Faraday Medal and Prize
