Joost Frenken wins the MRS Innovation in Materials Characterization Award
ARCNL director and group leader Joost Frenken received the 2017 Innovation in Materials Characterization Award of the Materials Research Society (MRS). He was chosen from a large group of nominees for “the development, application and commercialization of high-speed, temperature-controlled, in-situ scanning probe microscopy, leading to key insights in the structure, dynamics and chemistry of surfaces and interfaces.”
According to the MRS, the award “honors an outstanding advance in materials characterization that notably increases knowledge of the structure, composition, in situ behavior under outside stimulus, electronic behavior, or other characterization feature, of materials. The award was presented to Frenken during the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix.
MRS is a growing, vibrant member-driven organization of almost 14,000 materials researchers from academia, industry and government, and is a recognized leader in the advancement of interdisciplinary materials research. Headquartered in Warrendale, Pennsylvania (USA), MRS membership spans over 90 countries.
On Wednesday, April 19th Joost Frenken received the 2017 MRS Innovation in Materials Characterization Award during the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix. On MRS News he talks about the longtime research for which he received the award.
