Professor Federico Rosei of INRS’s Centre Énergie Matériaux Télécommunications is the recipient of the 2015 Electrochemical Society Canada Section Lash Miller Award. In conferring this award, the Electrochemical Society acknowledges his remarkable contribution to solid state science and technology.
Professor Rosei will deliver an award lecture on electronic and photonic devices at one of the two Electrochemical Society Canada Section meetings. He is the second INRS professor to receive this prestigious award. Professor Jacques E. Desnoyers, then associated with INRS-Énergie, received the second-ever Lash Miller Award in 1971. After 44 years, Professor Rosei brought the award back to INRS.
Presented every two years by the Electrochemical Society Canada Section, this award was created in 1969 to honour the memory of William Lash Miller, an eminent Canadian chemist. William Lash Miller was the first Canadian to head a university chemistry department in Canada and is considered one of the first proponents of thermodynamics in North America.
Congratulations to Professor Rosei, who has distinguished himself once again for his excellence and multidisciplinarity. ♦
