Congratulations to CAP members Mary Anne White and Patricia M. MOONEY on their recent appointment as fellows of the Royal Society of Canada.
MOONEY, Patricia M. – Department of Physics, Simon Fraser University
Patricia Mooney is a leader in the fields of materials physics and semiconductor characterization. Through the innovative use of forefront experimental methods, her groundbreaking studies of semiconductor defects have provided new insight into their fundamental properties, and lead to advances which have aided in the perfection and commercialization of important new information technologies. She has been a highly visible role model in international conference organization, and in professional society governance.
WHITE, Mary Anne – Department of Chemistry, Dalhousie University
Mary Anne White is a world leader in experimental investigations of thermal properties of materials, at the overlap of chemistry, physics and materials science. Her contributions to the basic understanding of thermal conduction in solids and phase stability in complex systems have advanced science and led to new directions in applications such as more efficient thermoelectric materials and thermally erasable paper.
