Abstract:
The Prize Committee of Nanotechnology International Prize RUSNANOPRIZE-2009 in NanoElectronics awarded the Prize to Prof. Leonid Keldysh (Russia) and Prof. Alfred Yi Cho (USA) for contribution to the research and development of semiconductor superlattices and technology of the molecular beam epitaxy. RIBER Company (France) will also receive the Prize symbol for their development of molecular beam epitaxy equipment.

The first Nanotechnology International Prize RUSNANOPRIZE-2009 will be awarded to Leonid Keldysh and Alfred Yi Cho

Moscow, Russia | Posted on July 25th, 2009

Prof. Leonid Keldysh, a prominent Russian theoretical physicist working at the Lebedev Institute of Physics, published first theoretical papers as early as 1962, which demonstrated the application potential of periodic semiconductor nanostructures in electronics and optoelectronics. Researches by Prof. Keldysh gave an impetus to researchers and technologists to develop growing technology for nanostructures with an atomic precision. In the late sixties and early seventies, Prof. Alfred Yi Cho, a leading scientist of Bell Laboratories, developed the fundamentals of this technology, subsequently named "molecular beam epitaxy".

Nowadays the molecular beam epitaxy is widely used in the manufacturing of ultra-high speed elements for such devices as cellular phones, CD players, computing systems, fiber optic networks, radars, satellite communication networks, television, etc.

The RUSNANOPRIZE Awarding Ceremony will take place in Moscow on 6 October 2009, as part of the plenary session of the Second International Nanotechnology Forum. The Prize fund in 2009 makes three million rubles, which will be equally shared between Prof. Leonid Keldysh and Prof. Alfred Yi Cho. The Prize Committee of Nanotechnology International Prize RUSNANOPRIZE-2009 in NanoElectronics is co-chaired by Anatoly Chubais, RUSNANO CEO, and Zhores Alferov, Nobel Prize Laureate and Vice President of the Russian Academy of Sciences.

The Prize voting results were independently verified by Ernst & Young, the official partner of the Nanotechnology International Prize RUSNANOPRIZE-2009.

About the Prize: Nanotechnology International Prize RUSNANOPRIZE has been established by Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) in 2009. The Prize is awarded on a yearly basis in one of the following fields: NanoElectronics, NanoMaterials, NanoBiotechnology and NanoDiagnostics. It is awarded to researchers whose nanotechnology discoveries and innovations have been applied to production as well as to companies that practically implemented them. The main goal of the Prize is to inspire and recognize innovations in the field of nanotechnology and nanoindustry. In 2009 the Prize is awarded in the field of "Nanoelectronics". The Prize fund makes 3,000,000 rubles (approximately USD 95.000).

About RUSNANO
The Russian Corporation of Nanotechnologies (RUSNANO) was established by the Federal Law in 2007. The corporation was charged with stimulating development, creating and strengthening infrastructure and realizing projects in nanotechnology and the nanoindustry. To accomplish this task, RUSNANO co-invests in nanotechnology projects that have high potential for commercial or social benefit. Early-stage investment by RUSNANO lowers the risk of its investment partners from the private sector.

RUSNANO participates in building nanotechnology infrastructure, which includes nanotechnology centers of excellence, business incubators and early stage investment funds. RUSNANO selects promising spheres for investment based on long-term forecast developed by leading Russian and world experts.

The corporation is open to international cooperation, which can be realized in many different forms, including joint ventures, interchange of data, infrastructural and educational projects. To assist the advancement of the Russian nanotechnology industry into global markets, RUSNANO organizes the annual Nanotechnology International Forum in Russia.

The corporation's budget is $5 billion. Its chief executive is Anatoly Chubais.
