Professor Federico Rosei of INRS to receive 2013 Herzberg Medal
Date:5/6/2013

Quebec City, May 6, 2013 Professor Federico Rosei, who is also the director of the INRS nergie Matriaux Tlcommunications Research Centre, has been awarded the Canadian Association of Physicists' (CAP) 2013 Herzberg Medal. This is the first time that an INRS physicist has received this distinction. With the medal, CAP acknowledges the importance of Professor Rosei's innovative and interdisciplinary research in the field of nanomaterials and his role as a mentor for hundreds of young scientists. Introduced in 1970, this prize will be awarded during CAP's annual congress, taking place in Montreal from May 27 to 31, 2013.

"I feel truly privileged and honoured to receive this medal from the Canadian Association of Physicists. I owe this success to the excellent research fellows and collaborators with whom I had the pleasure of working and to my mentors, who always supported and encouraged me," the award winner said.

A world-renowned researcher and Canada Research Chair in nanostructured organic and inorganic materials, Professor Rosei has paved the way for new discoveries and applications by providing new insights into structure/property relationships of several classes of advanced materials. His research team has also developed new strategies for fabricating, processing, and characterizing nanomaterials, including biocompatible materials.

Professor Rosei's outstanding scientific contribution is widely recognized and has garnered a number of awards. The Herzberg Medal follows the 2011 Rutherford Memorial Medal in Chemistry from the Royal Society of Canada. He is also the recipient of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation's 2010 Friedrich Wilhelm Bessel Research Award and is a fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining, the Institution of Engineering and Technology, the U.K. Institute of Nanotechnology, the Engineering Institute of Canada, and the Australian Institute of Physics. He is also a member of the Global Young Academy and the Sigma Xi Society, as well as a senior member of the IEEE.

Congratulations to the 2013 Herzberg Medal recipient!
