Robert Cava, the Russell Wellman Moore Professor of Chemistry and coleader of IRGA, has been awarded the James C. McGroddy Prize (2012) for New Materials by the American Physical Society. The award recognizes and encourages outstanding achievement in the science and application of new materials.
Science Watch has written an article on Professor Robert Cava's research in high-temperature superconductivity and topological insulators. According to Science Watch "...his work over the last decade places him squarely among the world's 1% most-cited physicists."
The team of researchers has discovered a new way that electrons behave in materials. The discovery could lead to new kinds of electronic devices.
The Princeton Center for Complex Materials (PCCM), Princeton's Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (MRSEC), has received a generous six-year renewal from the National Science Foundation (NSF), through August 2014. Under this new award, PCCM will be able to continue and expand its research and educational outreach programs, continue to support and build first-rate computational and experimental facilities, and enhance the connections between Princeton and outside organizations.
