Pauling Medal To Robert Cava
Robert J. Cava, Russell Wellman Moore Professor of Chemistry at Princeton University, has been awarded the 2012 Linus Pauling Medal Award for outstanding contributions to chemistry. The award has been given annually by the American Chemical Society Puget Sound, Oregon, and Portland Sections since 1966 and is named after Pauling, a Nobel Laureate and native of the Pacific Northwest.
Cava studies the chemistry of materials and is particularly interested in the relationships between chemistry, crystal structure, and electronic and magnetic properties of nonmolecular solids. His research focuses on the chemistry of superconductors, magnetic materials, thermoelectrics, topological insulators, geometrically frustrated magnets, and correlated electron systems.
