Nov. 9, 2015 12:45 p.m.

Andrei Bernevig, a Princeton University associate professor of physics, received a 2016 New Horizons in Physics Prize from the Breakthrough Prize foundation. Bernevig and two researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Stanford University were recognized for their "outstanding contributions to condensed matter physics, especially involving the use of topology to understand new states of matter." The three will share the $100,000 prize, which recognizes junior researchers who have already made important contributions to fundamental physics.
