PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 11, 2002
A team of molecular electronics researchers at HP (NYSE:HPQ) has been named by Scientific American magazine as one of the Scientific American 50 -- the noted magazine's first list recognizing scientific and technological contributions from the past year that provide a vision of a better future.
R. Stanley Williams, HP Fellow and director, Quantum Science Research (QSR) in HP Labs, and two members of his team, Yong Chen and computer architect Philip J. Kuekes, were named jointly as Research Leader in Manufacturing for their work in advancing molecular electronics and nano-imprint lithography. Also named was James R. Heath, current UCLA professor, whose group collaborates with QSR.
HP has achieved important results and been granted key patents in techniques that could make practical the fabrication of molecular-scale electronic devices.
Announced today, the Scientific American 50 makes its debut in the magazine's December issue, appearing on newsstands Nov. 18.
Said Editor-in-chief John Rennie: "Scientific American's editors wanted to recognize some of the most outstanding visionaries who are advancing technology and guaranteeing a bright future for all of us."
"We're delighted to be recognized by a publication of the stature of Scientific American and to be included in such a prestigious assemblage," said Williams. "The achievements we've produced so far are the result of a real team effort within our group. Everyone in QSR has contributed, directly or indirectly, and deserves to share in the credit for this honor."
