Distinguished Professor David Tanner has been awarded the 2016 Frank Isakson Prize for Optical Effects in Solids. Tanner shares the prize with Dirk Van der Marel of the University of Geneva.
The Isakson prize is awarded biennially by the American Physical Society "to recognize outstanding optical research that leads to breakthroughs in the condensed matter sciences."
Specifically, the APS recognized Tanner for “insightful experiments and analyses on a wide variety of quantum solids with strong electronic correlations in general, and cuprate superconductors in particular, using optical spectroscopy.”
The award will be formally presented at a ceremony in Baltimore on March 14 during the course of the APS March Meeting. Tanner will also talk about his work at the same meeting.
