2012 Kavli Prize in Nanoscience goes to Mildred Dresselhaus of MIT

Prof. Mildred Dresselhaus (MIT) won the prestigious Kavli Prize in Nanoscience for 2012. She was awarded as the single recipient "for her pioneering contributions to the study of phonons, electron-phonon interactions, and thermal transport in nanostructures."

It turns out that she "has laid the foundation for our understanding of the influence of reduced dimensionality on the fundamental thermal and electrical properties of materials."

This award also signifies the first woman recipient of Kavli Prize in Nanoscience.

Congrats to Mildred!
