2014 New York Microscopical Society Ernst Abbe Award

NEW YORK MICROSCOPICAL SOCIETY ERNST ABBE AWARDSymposium on Atomic Force Microscopy Infrared Spectroscopy organized with the New York Conservation Foundation Dr. Alexandre Dazzi has a research program focused on nanoscale IR Spectroscopy, a technique that he invented.  Specific research objectives including applying the technique to solve interesting problems in microbiological and cellular imaging, while simultaneously pushing the limits of the technique itself.  He obtained his Ph.D. in Physics in 1998 at the Université de Dijon, and did post-doctoral work at

2014 New York Section of the Society for Applied Spectroscopy Gold Medal Award

Laurence (Larry) A. Nafie received his Ph.D. from the University of Oregon in 1973, studying resonance Raman scattering, and from 1973 to 1975 he was a postdoctoral associate at the University of Southern California, working on the discovery and confirmation of infrared vibrational circular dichroism (VCD).  In 1975 he joined the Chemistry faculty at Syracuse University to establish a research program in VCD and Raman optical activity (ROA).  In 1978, he was named an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Fellow and was
