Quebec City, November 11, 2010 Professor Federico Rosei of the INRS Energy Materials Telecommunications Center has been selected as the recipient of the prestigious 2010 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award given by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation. The foundation grants 25 of these awards annually to young, high level researchers around the world. Professor Rosei was selected in recognition of the caliber and scope of his research in the field of nanomaterials.

This honor will allow him to start collaborating with researchers at the Max Planck Institute in Stuttgart and other German research teams on the cutting edge of nanotechnology. In the years ahead, Professor Rosei will work with his German colleagues to study self-assembly in surface moleculesone of the key concepts of nanotechnologyto develop new materials used for electronics, energy applications, and in the life sciences.

Professor Rosei currently holds the Canada Research Chair in Nanostructured Organic and Inorganic Materials. He has solid expertise in the fabrication, processing, and characterization of these materials. His team is currently composed of 11 doctoral students and 9 postdoctoral fellows. Since 2000, he has published over 100 articles in prestigious international journals including Science, Nature Chemistry, Nature Nanotechnology, and Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. He has also been an invited speaker at over 100 conferences in 33 countries on all five continents. Working with an international team, he recently made major scientific advances in the field of organic nanoelectronics, leading to the development of a method of producing single-layer surface polymerization.

INRS is a university dedicated to research and graduate studies. One of Canada's leading research universities in terms of grants per professor, INRS brings together some 150 research professors, more than 600 students and close to 100 postdoctorates at its four centers in Montreal, Quebec City, Laval, and Varennes. Conducting applied and fundamental research essential to the advancement of science in Quebec, as well as at the international level, INRS also plays a critical role in finding solutions to problems facing our society.
