EAM Member Prof. Hans-Peter Steinrück has been awarded the Medard W. Welch Award. With the award the AVS - Science and Technology of Materials, Interfaces, and Processing (formerly American Vacuum Society) honors Steinrück's "pioneering work on the properties and reactivity of the surfaces of ionic liquids by using surface research methods". The award goes back to the founder of the AVS, Medard W. Welch, and is awarded to scientists who have performed extraordinary research and experimental research for more than ten years. It is endowed with a cash prize and also includes a medal as well as an honorary lecture at the international annual conference of the AVS in November 2017, where the prize officially will be awarded. The award is one of the most prominent international awards in the field of surface and interface research.
