Professor Deji Akinwande Named Fellow of APS

Professor Deji Akinwande was named Fellow of the American Physical Society.

The criterion for election as an APS fellow is exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise; e.g., outstanding physics research, important applications of physics, leadership in or service to physics, or significant contributions to physics education. Fellowship is a distinct honor signifying recognition by one’s professional peers.

Each nomination is evaluated by the Fellowship committee of the appropriate APS division, topical group or forum, or by the APS General Fellowship committee. Dr. Akinwande was nominated by the Forum on Industrial and Applied Physics for contributions to the physical study and development of scalable uniform monolayer graphene synthesis on wafer-scale substrates, and the realization of GHz flexible and wearable two-dimensional devices, circuits and systems.

TMI congratulates Dr. Akinwande on this outstanding accomplishment!
