Dr. David Awschalom, professor of physics at the University of California, Santa Barbara has been selected as the recipient of the 2010 Materials Research Society Turnbull award for research funded in large measure by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research.


Word of the Day
ecotone
  • A transitional zone between two communities containing the characteristic species of each.
The word 'ecotone' comes 'eco-' plus a Greek root meaning 'tension'.
