Schmidt-Rohr selected Fellow of American Physical Society

CATEGORIES: Uncategorized

Chemistry professor Klaus Schmidt-Rohr was one of seven scientists selected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society in the Division of Polymer Physics. The honor recognizes Schmidt-Rohr "for inventing and improving advanced solid-state NMR techniques that provide important new information about polymers, such as the Nafion used in fuel cells, those which occur naturally in plants and soils, and those which form nanocomposites in bone." The criterion for election is "exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education." Fellowship is an honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers, according to the society.
