Rutgers University Department of Physics and Astronomy
The Soluyanov Best Paper Prize in Condensed Matter Physics was established 2020 in memory of Alexey A. Soluyanov, whose outstanding contributions in computational materials theory were cut short by his untimely passing in 2019. Alexey received his doctorate from the Department of Physics and Astronomy at Rutgers University in 2012. Subsequently, he was a postdoctoral fellow, then senior scientist at ETH Zürich. In 2018, he became a Swiss National Science Foundation professor at the University of Zürich, leading his own research group. Alexey's work was characterized by curiosity, originality, perseverance and above all, a deep love of physics.
The Soluyanov Prize is awarded annually to one graduate student who is judged to have published the best refereed journal article in condensed matter physics prior to completing his or her final year of graduate study.
