- Associate Professor Bharat Jalan is the 2017 winner of the prestigious Paul H. Holloway Young Investigator Award from the Thin Film Division of the American Vacuum Society (AVS). This award is named after Professor Paul H. Holloway, who has a distinguished history of scholarship and services to AVS and is still very involved in the AVS. The award honors young scientists who have contributed outstanding theoretical and experimental work in an area related to thin films. Jalan received the award for his significant contributions in the area of thin film synthesis and study of multifunctional materials - including semiconducting oxides, ferroelectrics, and novel oxide heterostructures - that have enabled both the development and understanding of fundamentally new materials phenomena and the novel device development. He will be presented with an award certificate and monetary prize at the AVS 64th International Symposium and Exhibition in Tampa, Florida on October 31, 2017.
