Professor Martin Zanni will receive the 2017 Craver Award, an international prize awarded by the Coblentz Society. The award is given to “young professional spectroscopists who have made significant contributions in applied analytical vibrational spectroscopy.”
Zanni is recognized for his innovative work in 2D IR spectroscopy. His research group “has made many technological innovations in 2D IR, 2D Visible, and 2D SFG spectroscopy that has broadened the capabilities and scope of multidimensional spectroscopies,” according to the Society.
His work holds applications in biophysics, chemical physics, photovoltaics, and surface science.
Zanni is the founder of PhaseTech Spectroscopy Inc., which is the first company to commercialize 2D IR and 2D Visible spectroscopies.
