Professor N. Phuan Ong (Physics) has been named as Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Ong was cited for his contributions to research in Dirac materials, topological insulators and the Nernst effect in high-temperature superconductors.
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.
