High distinction: TU Dresden Professor Cuniberti ap

The American Physical Society (APS) named Professor Gianaurelio Cuniberti a Fellow of the Society on October 19, 2022. The APS Fellowship Program was established in 1921 to honor members who have made significant contributions to the advancement of physics through outstanding achievements in research, technology and teaching. The official presentation of the nomination certificate will take place at the next APS Meeting in Las Vegas in March 2023.

Becoming a member of APS is an exclusive distinction: no more than half a percent of APS members are recognized as members each year, according to the Society’s statutes.

This year, 154 fellows have been selected for their contributions to physics, including only 6 from Germany and 15 from Europe.

Cuniberti receives the award for “pioneering computational and experimental work on low-dimensional structures and sustained contributions to the understanding of nanoelectronic devices from atom to system.” According to the APS, such achievements are only possible with a transversal and interdisciplinary approach. TU Dresden Vice-Rector for Research, Professor Angela Rösen-Wolff, sees this as a confirmation of the university’s strategy: “Synergy is the prerequisite for excellence. An award recognizing interdisciplinary achievements like that of Professor Cuniberti, who is based at the Faculties of Mechanical Sciences and Engineering and Physics, is both an honor and a motivation for us. »

“Professor Cuniberti’s appointment as a Fellow of the American Physical Society, which was preceded by a highly competitive selection process, recognizes his magnificent and diverse scientific achievements in nanoscience. They are only possible because of his spirit. of innovation, which has always looked across the boundaries between disciplines. It is also a great honor for Dresden Physics as a whole. I am happy and proud that we are represented in this circle of world-renowned physicists.” , said Professor Carsten Timm, dean of the faculty of physics at the Technical University of Dresden.
