EVANSTON, Ill.–Northwestern Department of Chemistry Chair Teri W. Odom has been elected a 2018 Fellow of the American Physical Society (APS).

The criterion for APS Fellow election is “exceptional contributions to the physics enterprise.” Established in 1921, the Fellowship recognizes “outstanding contributions to physics,” and is a distinct honor as┬áthe number of APS Fellows elected each year is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership.

Odom, the Charles E. and Emma H. Morrison Professor of Chemistry, an IIN-affiliated researcher and former IIN associate director, is being recognized for contributions to plasmonics, to understanding plasmon-exciton interactions through the development of multi-scale metal nanostructures, and for plasmon-enhanced lasers.

The International Institute for Nanotechnology at Northwestern University is an umbrella organization that represents and unites more than $1 billion in nanotechnology research, education and supporting infrastructure.
