The award honours the contributions of a young investigator who has made major impacts on the field of physical chemistry, in particular in the research areas of Energy Conversion and Storage, Optical and Electronic Devices, Interfaces, Nanomaterials, and Hard Matter. Dr Hofmann is being recognised for his outstanding contributions to the understanding of the growth and device integration of novel nanomaterials, including carbon nanotubes, graphene and semiconductor nanowires. He will deliver his lectureship talk at the Fall 2014 American Chemical Society national meeting.
