Awarded for the discovery of the surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy and his pioneering contributions to single molecule, tip-enhanced, and ultrafast Raman spectroscopy that have profoundly influenced physical chemistry


About the Winner


Professor Van Duyne discovered surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS), invented nanosphere lithography (NSL), and developed ultrasensitive nanosensors based on localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) spectroscopy. His research interests include SERS, LSPR spectroscopy, plasmonics, nanoscale biosensors, atomic layer deposition (ALD), ultrahigh vacuum tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (UHV-TERS), electrochemical tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (EC-TERS) and surface-enhanced femtosecond stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SE-FSRS). 

He has been elected a Fellow/Member of the National Academy of Sciences, American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC), American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering, Society of Applied Spectroscopy (SAS), American Physical Society (APS), and the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Major awards include the Coblentz Memorial Prize, American Chemical Society (ACS) National Fresenius Award, the Pittsburgh Spectroscopy Award, APS Earle K. Plyler Prize, ACS Nobel Laureate Signature Award, L'Oreal Art and Science of Color Prize, Optical Society of America (OSA), Ellis R. Lippincott Award, Coblentz Society Bomem-Michelson Award, ACS Analytical Chemistry Award, Society of Electroanalytical Chemistry (SEAC) Charles N. Reilley Award, RSC Sir George Stokes Award, SAS Charles Mann Award, ACS E. Bright Wilson Award, RSC Theophilus Redwood Award, SAS Gold Medal, RSC Spiers Memorial Award, and the Vannevar Bush Faculty Fellow Award.
