Alberto Salleo honored with SPIE Early Career Achievement Award

25 February 2010

Alberto Salleo, Stanford University, Stanford, California, USA, is the 2010 recipient of the Early Career Achievement award in recognition of his fundamental and highly influential contributions in large area electronics, polymer thin film transistors, and laser/material interactions.

"Although Salleo is a recently-appointed junior professor of Materials Science and Engineering, he has already established a very impressive record of research achievements related to organic electronic materials and to laser-solid interactions," said Paul C. McIntyre, Deputy Director, Geballe Laboratory for Advanced Materials, Stanford University. "Salleo's work in the field of organic electronics involves the introduction of charge transport models in order to understand what limits the ultimate performance of these materials. In less than five years, Salleo's publications in organic electronics have been cumulatively cited over 420 times and he has been invited to write 6 review articles and book chapters."

Salleo is a Member of the Society and has authored numerous SPIE proceedings papers.

SPIE Early Career Achievement Award is given annually to an early career professional in recognition of significant and innovative technical contributions to any of the engineering or scientific fields of interest to SPIE. The award is presented at an SPIE Conference devoted to the early career professional's field. An honorarium of $2,000.00 will be presented.
