Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation
May 12

The Camille and Henry Dreyfus Foundation has announced that Michele Parrinello, Professor at USI Università della Svizzera italiana and ETH Zurich, has won the ...2017 Dreyfus Prize in the Chemical Sciences, conferred this year in Theoretical and Computational Chemistry. The international prize, awarded biennially, consists of $250,000, a medal, and a citation. The award ceremony will be held at USI Università della Svizzera italiana in Lugano, Switzerland, in the fall and will include a lecture by Parrinello.

Parrinello is honored for his groundbreaking developments of molecular dynamics simulation methodology and associated landmark studies of chemical, material, and biomolecular systems.

(Phys.org)—Researchers have finally answered a question that has eluded scientists for years: when exposed to moderately high pressures, why does graphite turn into hexagonal diamond (also called lonsdaleite) and not the more familiar cubic diamond, as predicted by theory?

A team of researchers from Harvard may have produced the first metallic hydrogen, but other experts in the field aren't yet convinced.

If validated, a contested experiment would complete the 80-year quest to squeeze the lightest element into a solid metal.

Sad news:

Lev Petrovich Gor'kov, professor of physics and leading theorist at the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, died on December 28, 2016.

Gor'kov wa...s internationally known for his pioneering work in the field of superconductivity and had been the recipient of many prestigious awards throughout his illustrious career including the Lenin Prize, Russia's highest award for scientific achievement in 1966, the Landau Award in 1988, and the Bardeen Award in 1991.

Born in Russia in 1929, Gor'kov left Moscow for the United States in 1992 and was a founding member of the National MagLab.

"Lev was a man whose scientific accomplishments are known and admired by the physics community and whose gentle personality and keen sense of humor are equally appreciated by those fortunate enough to have known him personally," said MagLab Director Greg Boebinger.

Gor'kov was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and fellow of the American Physical Society. He received the Humboldt Research Award in 1999 and was given the Eugene Feenberg Medal in 2004 for advancing the field of many-body physics. Just last year, Gor'kov was presented the Ugo Fano Prize by the Rome International Center for Materials Science.
