Dawn Bonnell and Nader Engheta Named 2015 MRS Fellows

Karen WineyDawn Bonnell, Henry Towne Professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, and Nader Engheta, H. Nedwill Ramsey Professor in the Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, have been named 2015 Materials Research Society (MRS) Fellows.

The fellowship honors those MRS members who are notable for their distinguished research accomplishments and their outstanding contributions to the advancement of materials research, worldwide. The distinction is highly selective with the maximum number of new Fellow appointments each year being limited to 0.2% of the current MRS regular membership.

Bonnell's research focuses on explores the fundamental basis of property variations at atomic scales in complex materials, exploiting these variations to make functional systems.

Engheta’s research interests span the fields of nanooptics and nanophotonics, metamaterials and plasmonics, and optical nanostructures, including nanoantennas, nanocircuits, and nanosystems. Nader is also investigating bio-inspired sensing and imaging, as well as physics and reverse-engineering of polarization vision in nature.
