Steve Louie Awarded MRS Materials Theory Award

Wednesday, November 4, 2015

The Materials Research Society (MRS) has named Steven G. Louie of the University of California, Berkeley, as the recipient for the 2015 Materials Theory Award "for his seminal contributions to the development of ab initio methods for and the elucidation of many-electron effects in electronic excitations and optical properties of solids and nano-structures." Louie will be recognized at the 2015 MRS Fall Meeting in Boston. The Materials Theory Award, endowed by Toh-Ming Lu and Gwo-Ching Wang, "recognizes exceptional advances made by materials theory to the fundamental understanding of the structure and behavior of materials."

Louie has advanced the frontiers of multiple fields across materials research by developing new concepts, pioneering critical theoretical and computational methods, predicting new properties and materials, providing insights to novel phenomena, and fostering interactions between theory and experiment.
