The Materials Research Society selected Jinghua Guo to receive the 2020 Innovation in Materials Characterization Award. This award honors an outstanding advance in materials characterization that notably increases knowledge of the structure, composition, in situ behavior under outside stimulus, electronic behavior, or other characterization feature, of materials. Guo was chosen “For pioneering in-situ/operando soft X-ray spectroscopy characterization of interfacial phenomena in energy, catalysis, and chemical materials science.”
The American Physical Society recognizes Yi-De Chuang as an Outstanding Referee of the Physical Review journals, as chosen by the journal editors for 2020. Selections are made based on the number, quality, and timeliness of referee reports as collected in a database over the last 30 years. Comparable to Fellowship in the APS and other organizations, this is a lifetime award.
