Brief Bio:
Smalley was born June 6, 1943, received a B.S. degree from the University of Michigan in 1965, and received a Ph.D. from Princeton in 1973. He began work at Rice University in 1976 and became a Professor in the Department of Physics in January 1990. In 1996, Dr. Smalley was appointed Director of the Center for Nanoscale Science and Technology (CNST) at Rice University. Current DOE-funded research by The Smalley Group focuses on nanotube single crystal growth. Richard Smalley has won many awards, including the 1992 E.O. Lawrence Award and the 1996 Nobel Prize in Chemistry, which he shares with Robert F. Curl, Jr., of Rice University, Houston, TX, and Sir Harold W. Kroto of Great Britain "for their discovery of fullerenes". The Nobel award was given for the discovery of a new allotrope of carbon that consists of 60 carbon atoms in the shape of a soccer ball. The molecule was named Buckminsterfullerene and given the nickname "buckyball." Although Richard Smalley is gone his work on nanotechnology is a legacy that continues at Rice University.
