The Cahn Prize is named in honor of the Journal’s founding editor, the late Professor Robert Wolfgang Cahn.
Each month the Editors select a paper published in that month’s issues via a rigorous nomination and voting procedure. The winning paper is selected from the twelve finalists by a separate panel of distinguished materials scientists.
The authors of the winning paper receive an award of $5,000.
You can read more research at the Journal of Material Science.
The 2019 Journal of Materials Science Robert W. Cahn Best Paper Prize (the “Cahn Prize”) will be announced at MRS Fall conference
