Georgia Tech's Walt de Heer awarded Materials Research Society Medal
Date:12/2/2010

The Materials Research Society awarded Walter A. de Heer, professor of physics at the Georgia Institute of Technology, the MRS Medal at its annual fall meeting in Boston today. De Heer was cited by the society for his "pioneering contributions to the science and technology of epitaxial graphene." The MRS Medal recognizes an exceptional achievement in materials research in the past ten years. The MRS Medal is awarded for a specific outstanding recent discovery or advancement that has a major impact on the progress of a materials-related field.

"I am very pleased and encouraged that our research to develop epi-graphene for electronics is recognized already in this early stage. This will certainly stimulate others to join us in this important endeavor," said de Heer.

De Heer and his lab at Georgia Tech are known worldwide as the first to conceptualize the use of graphene for electronics, back in 2001. Currently de Heer's lab is working on developing epitaxial graphene as a replacement for silicon in electronics.

"Because epi-graphene may be able to surpass the speed limitations of silicon, while also allowing for less heat to be generated in a smaller chip, we believe that graphene shows great promise in being able to replace silicon in electronics for applications such as ultra-high frequency electronics, where these attributes will be needed most," said de Heer.

"Walt de Heer is a global leader in graphene research, and we congratulate him on this latest recognition of his important work," said Georgia Tech President G.P. "Bud" Peterson. "The interdisciplinary research that he and his colleagues are doing at Georgia Tech has the potential to dramatically change the electronics industry by enabling the use of this promising material in future generations of high-performance electronic devices."

De Heer earned a doctoral degree in physics from the University of California - Berkeley in 1986. He worked at the cole
