"I would like to thank my colleagues for their recognition," Soderholm said.
Soderholm has received several awards, notably the University of Chicago Board of Governors' Distinguished Performance Award in 2009 and the DOE's materials sciences research competition for Outstanding Scientific Accomplishments in Solid State Physics in 1987.
Segre is deputy director of the Biophysics Collaborative Access Team (BioCAT) at the Advanced Photon Source and a professor at the Illinois Institute of Technology. He was chosen as an AAAS fellow for his contributions to materials science and engineering - particularly high-temperature superconductivity and developing facilities for synchrotron radiation studies of electrochemical and catalytic systems.
"A lot of my work has been done in collaboration with Argonne," says Segre about his 20-year relationship working with the Materials Research Collaborative Access Team (MRCAT) beamline at the laboratory. "Working in collaboration with IIT and other institutions has been a big part of my career."
This fall, Segre received a $3.4 million award from the DOE's Advanced Research Projects Agency (ARPA-E) to develop a prototype for a rechargeable "nanoelectrofuel" flow battery that could extend the driving range of electric vehicles from 100-200 miles to 500 miles.
