Lawrence Berkeley Lab boss Alivisatos wins chemistry prize

Paul Alivisatos, director of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, won the Wolf Foundation Prize in Chemistry for 2012.
Alivisatos, who took over from Steven Chu after the former director went off to become U.S. Secretary of Energy, is an expert on nanochemistry. He shares this year’s prize, which includes $100,000, with Charles Lieber, a nanoscience expert at Harvard University.
Alivisatos won for development of colloidal inorganic nanocrystal, considered a building block of nanoscience.
