Dr. Iván Schuller, a professor of the University of California – San Diego, who has worked with our Center since its founding, will receive this important recognition during an annual ceremony at the Gothenburg Physics Centre in Sweden this coming September.
The Gothenburg Lise Meitner Prize Committee of the Gothenburg Physics Centre has chosen to award Dr Iván Schuller in recognition of his work on metallic superlattices and their impact on magnetism and superconductivity.
Together with valuing the contribution of his revolutionary discovery, the Gothenburg Lise Meitner Prize, which consists of a medallion, a plaque and an award of three thousand Euros, also recognizes the contribution of the Chilean-American physicist to science outreach.
Iván Schuller obtained his undergraduate degree in Science from the Universidad de Chile (Chile, 1970) and a Masters and PhD from Northwestern University (USA, 1976). He has collaborated with the basal project the Center for the Development of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology since it creation as a member of the international advisory committee, providing vision and orientation in the strategic objectives of the Center’s research.
Dr. Schuller will receive the 2015 Gothenburg Lise Meitner Prize this coming September 17 during an annual conference in the Swedish city of Gothenburg.
