RIP de Gennes

May 23, 2007 at 5:45 pm | | news, science community

We lost a great scientist this month: Pierre-Gilles de Gennes. He won the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1991 for his work to understand complex matter such as polymers. My research and studies as an undergrad involved a lot of polymer physics, so I learned to love his book Scaling Concepts in Polymer Physics.
