2018 Cahn Prize Finalists

The Cahn Prize has been 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 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.
