Applied Physics Prize
Harry Atwater, KNI board member and director of the Resnick Sustainability Institute, has been named a recipient of this year's Julius Springer Prize for Applied Physics. He has made key contributions to the research area of nanophotonics, the science of light at the nanoscale, in particular, pioneering the use of metallic nanostructures that support optical resonances called surface plasmons, to control light at the nanoscale.
