In September Applied Physics Letters (APL) welcomed a new editor-in-chief, Reuben Collins, an accomplished materials scientist specializing in renewable energies. Properties of nanostructured and lower dimensional systems have been an underlying theme of his scholarship. Collins is a professor at the Colorado School of Mines and is associate director of the Renewable Energy Materials Research Science and Engineering Center (REMRSEC). He is a dedicated educator and mentor of many undergraduate and graduate students, and postdoctoral researchers.
Read Dr. Collins’ editorial, “Building on excellence: A vision for the future.”
Collins joins APL as former editor-in-chief Nghi Lam steps down after two decades of leadership. During his tenure, APL was the most highly cited journal publishing full-length articles in the Thomson Reuters’ Applied Physics category. Read Lam’s editorial, “Reflections on my tenure as editor-in-chief of Applied Physics Letters.”
