Yasushi Ishii, Professor, Faculty of Science and Engineering, was granted the Jean Marie Dubois Award for recognition of his important research on quasicrystals.
The Jean Marie Dubois Award was established in 2004 to recognize important, sustained research on quasicrystals, and granted to researchers with significant research once in three years.
Professor Ishii will receive the award in recognition of important theoretical work that has contributed to an understanding of electronic stabilization mechanisms in metallic quasicrystals.
Since the experimental discoveries of Cd-rich and Zn-rich quasicrystals that began in 2000, Professor Ishii has performed important, groundbreaking work to elucidate the nature of bonding in these new materials.
The ceremony will be held at ICQ12 (The 12th International Conference on Quasicrystals) in Krakow, Poland.
