Keck Futures Initiative 2011 Award (USA) for Peter Binev, Wolfgang Dahmen and Tom Vogt

Wolfgang Dahmen, Institut für Geometrie und Praktische Mathematik, RWTH Aachen, together with Tom Vogt and Peter Binev, University of South Carolin,a received a $100,000 research grant for their research on “Smart data acquisition for nanoscale imaging“. Imaging using high-energy electrons will become increasingly important in the future, especially in materials science and life sciences. Established through a $40 million grant from the W.M. Keck Foundation in 2003, the National Academies Keck Futures Initiative is a 15-year effort to enhance communication among researchers, funding agencies, universities, and the general public with the objective of stimulating interdisciplinary research at the most exciting frontiers. The National Academies and the W.M. Keck Foundation believe considerable scientific progress and social benefit will be achieved by providing a counterbalance to the tendency to isolate research within academic fields.
