Ali Yazdani was elected to Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science at a recent meeting of AAAS
Physics professor Ali Yazdani received the distinguished honor from Popular Science for his work using a desk-size scanning-tunneling microscope to study high-temperature superconductors. The device can cool a sample to just above absolute zero, seal it in a near-perfect vacuum and block the faintest noise.
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.
