Physicist Eric D. Bauer of Los Alamos National Laboratory is among the recipients of the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers recently announced by the Obama Administration.
This is the highest honor bestowed by the U.S. government on outstanding scientists and engineers who are early in their independent research careers.
“I am very honored to be selected for this particular award,” Bauer said. “I’ve worked at LANL for eight years including my post doc work and I love working here very much. I get to do cutting-edge science with a large impact on the field and we’re doing really good science through the discovery of new materials.”
Bauer, 38, is a former Director’s, Seaborg and Reines postdoctoral fellow. He is part of a group of scientists focused on materials in which strong interactions between electrons lead to interesting and potentially useful properties such as superconductivity or superconductivity coupled with magnetism.
“A focused research effort like this is extremely rare,” Bauer said. “It could never happen at a university, for example, where each professor pursues his own special interest.”
In high school, Bauer apprenticed to become a pastry chef but a great high-school physics teacher led him to a
