Prof. Lincoln J. Lauhon
Prof. Lauhon is a Professor and Associate Chair in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Northwestern University and Co-Director of the Applied Physics Program. He received a Ph.D. in Physics from Cornell with Wilson Ho (2000) and a B.S. in Physics from the University of Michigan (1993). Prior to joining Northwestern in 2003, he was a postdoctoral researcher in the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology at Harvard University with Charles Lieber. At Northwestern, the Lauhon group investigates novel structure-property relationships in nanostructured materials and heterostructures using correlated imaging methods that probe structure, composition, and function. His work has been recognized with an NSF CAREER Award, a Sloan Fellowship in Chemistry, and a Camille Dreyfus Teacher Scholar Award. In collaborative endeavors, he leads IRG-1 in the Northwestern Materials Research Center, and serves on the Board of Directors for the Materials Research Society.
