Robert Cava , professor in the Department of Chemistry and the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials, has been named a fellow of the American Ceramic Society.
Fellows are elected based on their outstanding contributions to the ceramic arts or sciences, their broad and productive scholarship in ceramic science and technology, and their achievement in ceramic industry or outstanding service to the society.
As a scientist at Bell Labs in the 1980s, Cava was part of the group that led the discovery of high-temperature superconductors, which are made of advanced ceramics. In the intervening years, he has become an international authority on superconductivity and holds many patents on superconducting materials. He has been a faculty member at Princeton since 1996.
