Dr. Andre Geim, the University of Manchester Nobel Laureate for Physics, 2010, has published over 200 peer-refereed pulications, with more than 35 of his papers being cited over 100 times. According to ScienceWatch, he is responsible for initiating two research fronts: graphene and gecko tape.
2010 Nobel Prize: For "groundbreaking experiments regarding the two-dimensional material graphene"
2010 Royal Society Hughes Medal: For the "discovery of graphene and elucidation of its remarkable properties"
2010 NAS John J Cart Award: For "the realisation and investigation of graphene, the two-dimensional form of carbon"
2009 Korber Prize: For "developing the first two-dimensional crystals made of carbon atoms"
2008 Europhysics Prize: For "discovering and isolating a single free-standing atomic layer of carbon (graphene) and elucidating its remarkable electronic properties" (shared with Novoselov)
2007 Mott Prize: For "the discovery of a new class of materials 2D atomic crystals particularly graphene"
