NEES principal investigator Alec Talin of Sandia National Laboratories in Livermore, CA, has been named a Fellow of the American Physical Society.
The APS Fellowship Program was created to recognize members who may have made advances in physics through original research and publication, or made significant innovative contributions in the application of physics to science and technology. They may also have made significant contributions to the teaching of physics or service and participation in the activities of the Society.
Talin was honored “For the discovery of new electronic transport phenomena, materials, and devices.” This closely relates to his work at NEES in solid-state batteries and electrically conducting metal organic frameworks.
He is also adjunct Fellow at NIST/CNST and principal founding editor of the journal MRS Communications.
Each year, no more than one half of one percent of the Society membership is recognized by their peers for election to the status of Fellow in the American Physical Society.
