– It feels great. It's fun to realize that other researchers think that my work over the last 15 years has been significant. We also recently published in the highly ranked journals Scientific Reports (with LTU-doctoral student Daniel Hedman as first author) and Nature Communications, which has helped a lot, says Andreas Larsson.
Advances in carbon nanomaterials
It is mainly in the field of carbon nanomaterials Andreas Larsson has been recognized. A work that Andreas and his colleagues are continuing and where there is great potential for future applications, not least thanks to the excellent electrical properties of such materials.
The medal is given by IAAM for his "notable and outstanding contribution in the field of Advanced Materials Science and Technology", and was awarded at a ceremony in August earlier this year. The international organization IAAM has about 5,000 members and is the premier organization in advanced materials research. Andreas Larsson also believes that the medal is a way for IAAM to tie him closer to the organization.
– They want me to help shape and improve their IAAM conferences. This year and next year I help organizing the annual conference European Advanced Materials Congress in Stockholm. I will make the conference as fruitful as possible for me and all the other participants. It is very enjoyable that IAAM has given me great freedom and confidence when it comes to launch and organize things.
