Trinity physicist recognised for her world-leading research in nanoscience


A Trinity College Dublin physicist has been awarded the 2012 RDS/Intel Prize Lecture for Nanoscience.

Valeria Nicolosi, research professor at the school of physics, received the award in recognition of her world-leading research in nanoscience and her strong commitment to communicating her research to a diverse audience.

Regarded as a leading expert, Prof Nicolosi researches novel materials such as graphene and other one-atom materials whose properties make them super-strong, lightweight and electrically conductive and form the basis for new technologies which will enable next-generation semiconductor and energy storage devices.
