Professor Andrea Ferrari receives American Carbon Society’s Pettinos Award

last modified Mar 14, 2018 08:59 AM
Professor Andrea Ferrari of the Cambridge Graphene Centre has been presented with the American Carbon Society’s 2016 Charles E. Pettinos Award.

The award was presented by the president of the American Carbon Society at Ferrari’s opening plenary presentation at the 2016 World Conference On Carbon in State College, Pennsylvania, USA. The award was bestowed on Professor Ferrari for his “seminal research on Raman spectroscopy of carbon materials and leadership role in the development of graphene and other two-dimensional materials in Europe and worldwide”.

The Charles E. Pettinos Award is given by the Charles E. And Joy C. Pettinos Foundation in conjunction with the American Carbon Society for recent outstanding research accomplishments of an individual or group in carbon science and/or technology. It commemorates the contributions of Charles E. Pettinos, a pioneer in the graphite industry.

Professor Ferrari serves as Director of the Cambridge Graphene Centre and of the EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Graphene Technology. After a successful two-and-a-half years as Chair of the Executive Board of the 1 billion-Euro Graphene Flagship, Professor Ferrari took on the new position of Chair of the Management Panel of what is Europe’s biggest research initiative with the aim of taking graphene from the realm of academic laboratories into European society over the next 10 years.
