Physicists receive backing from Royal Society

The Royal Society has awarded two 2014 Royal Society Research Professorships: one to Konstantin Novoselov to support studies on graphene and the other to Michele Dougherty to fund work on outer planetary space missions.

The awards will fund the researchers’ salaries for up to 10 years, with the intention of enabling them to focus on their research.

Konstantin Novoselov is professor of physics at the University of Manchester, where he was one of two researchers to isolate graphene, the material comprising single sheets of carbon atoms. He received a joint Nobel prize for this work in 2010.
