Oct. 20, 2016

Emily Carter, dean of Princeton University's School of Engineering and Applied Science and the Gerhard R. Andlinger Professor in Energy and the Environment, has received the 2017 Irving Langmuir Prize in Chemical Physics from the American Physical Society. Carter was recognized for "the development of rigorous, ab initio methods such as embedding techniques and orbital free density functional theory, and their application to modeling the electronic structure of large systems, including solid materials, and charge transfer phenomena between molecules and surfaces." The biennial award recognizes outstanding interdisciplinary research in chemistry and physics, and includes a $10,000 prize.
