There is a special award called the NANOSMAT Award. It is a special prize for achievements in the scientific study and progress for development in nanoscience and nanotechnology.
Professor Ferrari made valuable and outstanding strides in the field study of nanoscience and nanotechnology. This involved groundbreaking work with graphene and carbon nanotubes.
The NANOSMAT Award committee seem to have been very impressed and excited by the exploration of various scientific knowledgeable boundaries concerning materials science, engineering in this field and physics surrounding it.
The awards committee was very impressed by his ability to carry out research with novel and stimulating results, exploiting different frontiers stretching from materials science to microengineering and physics on this relatively new realm of scientific endeavour.
There is also the KROTO Award that goes along similar lines of recognition. This committee as also watched over young scientists of outstanding merit who are new encouraging fledgelings, confidently moving into the exciting realm of nanoscience and nanotechnology. Perhaps tomorrow's grand experts in the making?
One doctor is developing nanotech parts to be mixed into computer desktop-scale applications. This means computers can become even more efficient and complex in the task performances with ever more competent programmes.
The two scientists, who will receive these awards, must go to the twelfth NANOSMAT conference in Paris where each prize winner will deliver a lecture to their audience.
