Chris Leighton named Distinguished McKnight University Professor, April 2014

IPrime EMD program faculty, Leighton conducts interdisciplinary research at the interface between materials science, chemistry, and condensed matter physics, seeking to understand electronic and magnetic properties of a broad range of materials. These materials, and the devices built from them, are of interest for applications as diverse as data storage, microelectronics, and solar cells, and for fundamental studies of electrons in solids. His research is internationally recognized, published in leading journals, and has yielded several awards and honors.
