World Scientific Authors Awarded the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics

World Scientific is pleased to be associated with the winners of the 2010 Nobel Prize in Physics, Andre Geim and Kostya Novoselov. Professors Geim and Novoselov were jointly awarded the Prize for their ground-breaking work on graphene and other free-standing two-dimensional crystals.

Professor Geim, a Fellow of the Royal Society, is the Langworthy Professor of Physics at the University of Manchester, where he directs the Manchester Centre for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology. He is known for his research on graphene, gecko tape, and diamagnetic levitation. An experiment on diamagnetic levitation garnered him and his co-researcher Sir Michael Berry the IgNobel Prize in 2000, making Professor Geim the first academic to win both the Nobel and IgNobel Prizes. Professor Geim has contributed to World Scientific's Modern Physics Letters B.

Professor Novoselov, a Fellow of the Royal Society, is also based at the University of Manchester's Manchester Centre for Mesoscience and Nanotechnology, where he conducts research on graphene. He has published numerous articles on mesoscopic superconductivity, sub-atomic movements of magnetic domain walls, gecko tape, and graphene. Together with Professor Geim, Professor Novoselov was awarded the Europhysics Prize for his work on graphene, and they have contributed articles to World Scientific's International of Modern Physics B, International Journal of Nanoscience, and Nanoscience and Technology.
