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.
