Education Notes

Abstract:
Two researchers from the University of Texas at Dallas have been awarded the prestigious Kapitza Medal by the Russian Academy of Natural Sciences for their breakthroughs in the field of nanotechnology. The medal is the highest award given by the academy for a major scientific discovery. Dr. Ray Baughman, director of UTD's NanoTech Institute, and Dr. Anvar Zakhidov, associate director of the institute, were honored at a ceremony in Moscow before an audience of nearly 400 scientists and engineers from approximately 40 universities and research institutes throughout Russia. Recently, Dr. Baughman and two of his colleagues, Dr. Mei Zhang and Dr. Shaoli Fang, were named to the 2006 Scientific American 50, a list published annually by the magazine that recognizes outstanding contributions in the fields of science and technology during the past year.
