MBE Award For CCNY’s Maria Tamargo
International award recognises individuals whose innovative work has significantly advanced the field of molecular beam epitaxy
New York chemistry professor Maria Tamargo has won the 2017 MBE Innovator Award for her work in “advancing the growth of wide bandgap II-VI semiconductors by molecular beam epitaxy and demonstrating their unique physical properties and potential novel device applications.'
The North American MBE Advisory Board will present the award at the North American MBE Conference (NAMBE) in Galveston, Texas, in October. Tamargo will receive a $3,000 prize, a plaque and the opportunity to give an invited talk at the NAMBE Conference.
Established in 2004, this international award recognises individuals whose innovative work has significantly advanced the field of molecular beam epitaxy. Recipients are highly distinguished scientists whose inventive work must have had/or continue to have a significant impact on the advancement of MBE technology.
In addition to her faculty position in City College’s Division of Science, Tamargo is director of the National Science Foundation's CREST Center for Interface Design and Engineered Assembly of Low-dimensional Systems, known by the acronym IDEALS.
