Emanuel Tutuc of the Chandra Family Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin has been awarded the James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials by the American Physical Society (APS). The James C. McGroddy Prize for New Materials recognizes outstanding achievement in the science and application of new materials and was awarded “for seminal contributions to the synthesis and assembly of high quality 2D materials and their heterostructures.” Tutuc was one of four researchers recognized by APS. The prize was established in 1997 and is endowed by IBM and the APS Division of Materials Physics.
Emanuel Tutuc is a Professor and holds the B. N. Gafford Professorship in Electrical Engineering in the Chandra Family Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at The University of Texas at Austin. He joined UT Austin and the Microelectronics Research Center in the spring of 2007. His current research is centered on the electronic properties of quantum confined systems, novel semiconductor materials and devices, and chemical vapor deposition.
