Rogers Honored by MRS for Flexible Electronics Work

WARRENDALE, Pa., April 2, 2013 — John A. Rogers, the director of the Seitz Materials Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will receive the 2013 Mid-Career Researcher Award for his contributions to developing flexible electronic systems.

The Materials Research Society (MRS) award, endowed by Aldrich Materials Science, recognizes exceptional achievements in materials research made by mid-career professionals.

Rogers will be honored for establishing comprehensive routes to semiconductor devices and integrated systems that offer the operational performance of conventional wafer-based technologies, but with the ability to bend, fold, twist, stretch and wrap complex, curvilinear and time-dynamic surfaces in ways that would otherwise be impossible. He used single-walled carbon nanotubes and nanomembranes of monocrystalline silicon and gallium arsenide as thin films for electronic devices, which deliver performance that is several orders of magnitude better than is possible with alternative materials.

He is a fellow of MRS, IEEE, APS, and AAAS, and a member of the National Academy of Engineering. He holds more than 80 patents and has published nearly 400 papers. He also received a MacArthur Fellowship in 2009 and the Lemelson-MIT Prize in 2011.

The award will be presented April 3 at the MRS spring meeting in San Francisco.
