Brown University awarded a Research Achievement Award to Prof. Ou Chen. The Research Achievement Awards honor extraordinary scholars for their research across a wide range of academic disciplines. Prof. Chen's research showed that special nanoparticle building blocks can assemble themselves into a quasicrystalline lattice, an ordered structure with no discernible repeating pattern and exotic symmetries.
This award which is sponsored by the ACS Division of Physical Chemistry recognizes outstanding accomplishments in fundamental or applied spectroscopy in chemistry. Professor Wang will deliver the award address at the spring awards symposium of the ACS Division of Physical Chemistry.
