Home > Press > Six Brookhaven Lab Scientists Named American Physical Society Fellows

Abstract:
Six scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory have been named Fellows of the American Physical Society (APS), a professional organization with more than 47,000 members. Election to APS Fellowship is limited to no more than one half of one percent of its membership in a given year, and election for this honor indicates recognition by scientific peers for outstanding contributions to physics.

Six Brookhaven Lab Scientists Named American Physical Society Fellows

Upton, NY | Posted on December 17th, 2009

One of the 2009 Fellows from Brookhaven is:

Charles Black

"For pioneering contributions to the integration of nanometer-scale polymer self-assembly in the fabrication of high-performance semiconductor microelectronic devices."

During his career at IBM, Black pioneered the use of self-assembly in nanotechnology to fabricate high-performance semiconductor devices used in microelectronics. Self-assembly is the spontaneous organization of materials into regular patterns. Under controlled conditions, certain materials will self-organize into patterns on the scale of tens of nanometers with dimensions and uniformity unattainable by conventional means. In his current research at Brookhaven's Center for Functional Nanomaterials (CFN), Black is designing and applying self-assembly approaches to build nanostructured solar cells from low-cost polymer and nanocrystal materials.

Black earned a Ph.D. in physics from Harvard University in 1996, and started his career at the IBM Thomas J. Watson Research Center as a research staff member. In 2006, he joined Brookhaven as a scientist and group leader, managing the CFN's Electronic Nanomaterials Group. Black has been recognized for his innovative research contributions, including receiving Industry Week Magazine's Technology of the Year Award in 2004, and IBM's Outstanding Technical Achievement Award in 2005.
