Berkeley Lab Director Paul Alivisatos Named Samsung Chair

August 23, 2013

Berkeley Lab director Paul Alivisatos has been appointed to the Samsung Distinguished Chair in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology at UC Berkeley. Established by the Samsung Electronics Corporation, this new endowed chair is intended to help “cement” UC Berkeley’s leadership in nanoscience research. Samsung is recognizing Alivisatos for his contributions to the study of nanocrystals, ranging from control of their synthesis and fabrication to studies of their optical, electrical, structural, and thermodynamic properties, which has opened the door to their use as fluorescent probes and the fabrication of hybrid solar cells. Alivisatos is relinquishing his Larry and Diane Bock professorship. More >
