The 1st Lynden-Bell award has been given to Prof. Alexei Kornyshev in recognition of his outstanding career in the field of ionic systems within condensed matter theoretical chemical physics.
The award has been presented personally by Prof. Lynden-Bell to Prof. Kornyshev during the ILMAT IV conference in October 2017 (Santiago de Compostela) when he gave an award lecture, entitled « New Horizons in Ionics: Electrochemical Metamaterials ».
