Mauricio Terrones appointed new Editor-in-Chief of Carbon

We are delighted to announce Mauricio Terrones as the new Editor-in-Chief of Carbon.

Professor Terrones obtained his B.Sc. degree in Engineering Physics with first class honors at Universidad Iberoamericana, and was distinguished as the Best Student of Mexico in Engineering Physics in 1992.

Currently, he is Distinguished Professor of Physics, Chemistry and Materials Science & Engineering at Penn State University. He is also the Founder Director of the Center for 2-Dimensional and Layered Materials at Penn State, and also the NSF-IUCRC Center for Atomically Thin Multifunctional Coatings (ATOMIC). His research focuses on understanding the Physics and Chemistry of materials at the nanoscale. In particular, low dimensional materials that mainly involve 1- and 2-Dimensions, ranging from carbon nanotubes and graphene nanoribbons to graphene, boron nitride and chalcogenide monolayers (e.g. WS2, MoS2, NbS2 , etc). 

The journal Carbon is an international multidisciplinary forum for communicating scientific advances in the field of carbon materials and carbon nanomaterials. The journal reports significant new findings related to the formation, structure, properties, behaviors, and technological applications of carbons, which are a broad class of ordered or disordered solid phases composed primarily of elemental carbon.
