APS PhD Dissertation Award in Condensed Matter Physics

The American Physical Society has initiated a new PhD dissertation award to honor the best thesis in experimental condensed matter physics. Called the Richard L. Greene award in Experimental Condensed Matter or Materials Physics, it was initiated by Richard Greene, Emeritus Director of CNAM (formerly Center for Superconductivity Research).

The prize will be awarded every year, with 2015 being the inaugural year. See the APS Physics link for details.
