The Editors and Publisher are pleased to announce the winning paper and 11 finalists for the 2013 Journal of Materials Science Robert W. Cahn Best Paper Prize (the “Cahn Prize”). The Cahn Prize has been named in honor of the Journal’s founding editor, the late Professor Robert Wolfgang Cahn.
Each month the Editors selected a paper published in that month's issues via a rigorous nomination and voting procedure. The winning paper will be selected from the twelve finalists by a separate panel of distinguished materials scientists. The authors of the winning paper will receive an award of $5,000.
