Accolades for newest faculty

December 20, 2006

Dear friends of physics:

A couple of recent successes of our newest faculty members are worth noting as we close out the year:

  • Richard Averitt joins us in January from Los Alamos National labs, and his most recent work (as senior author), Active terahertz metamaterial devices has been published in Nature this past month together with a comment.
  • Ami Katz has just won an NSF CAREER award for work in “Electroweak and Strong Coupling Physics.”
  • Anatoli Polkovnikov has recently won a single investigator theory grant from DoD entitled, “Dynamics and Thermodynamics of Many-Particle Cold Atom Systems.”

Congratulations to all!
