The KAMERLINGH ONNES PRIZE was established in 2000 by the organizers of the International Conference on the Materials and Mechanisms of Superconductivity (M2S) in honor of Prof. Heike Kamerlingh Onnes who discovered superconductivity in 1911. It is awarded every three years at the M2S Conference, for outstanding experiments which illuminate the nature of superconductivity other than materials. The award is sponsored by Elsevier, Publisher of Physica C - Superconductivity and its Applications. The Prize consists of 7,500 € and a certificate.

Gilbert Lonzarich for visionary experiments concerning the emergence of superconductivity among strongly renormalized quasiparticles at the edge of magnetic order.

The 2015 Kamerlingh-Onnes Prize has been awarded at the M2S Conference in Geneva from August 23 to August 28, 2015.
