Joost Frenken (PI Leiden University) wins MRS Award


(by: LION) The Materials Research Society (MRS) has awarded Prof. Joost Frenken with the 2017 Innovation in Materials Characterization Award. The society hands out the prize in honor of 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.

Frenken 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."

He will receive his prize at the 2017 MRS Spring Meeting in Phoenix.
