The American Physical Society (APS) has awarded the distinction of Fellow to two members of the University of Maryland NanoCenter:
Michael Fuhrer, physics professor, for experimental studies of the electronic transport properties of carbon nanotubes and graphene.
In addition, Ichiro Takeuchi, an engineering professor who is also an affiliate of the Center for Nanophysics & Advanced Materials (CNAM), was elected for pioneering contributions to the creation of novel classes of materials using combinatorial synthesis and probing their properties using novel probes.
Founded in 1899, the APS is the world's second largest organization of physicists. Fellows are recognized by their peers for advances made in knowledge, through original research and publications.
