Rutgers physicist earns prestigious Packard Foundation Science and Engineering Fellowship
Date:10/11/2007

New Brunswick, N.J. Rutgers physicist Emil Yuzbashyan has received a Packard Foundation Fellowship for Science and Engineering, which provides $625,000 in research funding for five years. This marks the first time the Packard Foundation has awarded this coveted fellowship to a Rutgers University professor.

Yuzbashyan is among 20 fellows that the foundation selected from nominations at 50 of the nations top private and public research universities. He is also one of two physics faculty selected for this years fellowships. Recipients are in the first three years of their faculty careers and have shown exceptional creativity in individual research.

Having one of our faculty win this award is a landmark for Rutgers, said Torgny Gustafsson, chair of the universitys physics and astronomy department. This is an extremely competitive award only 26 universities have hosted Packard fellows in physics during the awards 19-year lifetime. We are pleased to be a part of that elite group.

Yuzbashyan, who joined Rutgers in 2004 after earning his doctorate in physics from Princeton University, is studying properties of matter at temperatures close to absolute zero the point where all motion ceases. Particles at these temperatures interact with each other in unusual ways; understanding those interactions could promote powerful new technologies such as quantum devices and superconductivity.

Past recipients of Packard fellowships have had successful careers and become well known in their fields, said Yuzbashyan. The fellowship will help me build a skilled team of doctoral students, postdoctoral research fellows and visiting scientists to pursue this research and collaborate with others doing related work worldwide.

Yuzbashyans research is in a branch of physics known as condensed matter physics, which deals with the physical properties of solid and liquid matter. He has recently developed a new theory related to superfluidity, or how
