Former SNNI research wins prestigious award

Mas Subramanian is the 2013 recipient of the F.A. Gilfillan Award for Distinguished Scholarship in Science at Oregon State University. This award recognizes distinguished scholarship of a faculty member in the College of Science at OSU whose scientific achievements while at OSU extend globally. 

Mas is internationally recognized for breakthrough scientific discoveries involving superconductors, dielectrics, magnetism, catalysis, thermoelectrics and fluorination chemistry. His research involves designing new inorganic solid state functional materials for emerging applications in electronics, energy conversion and the environment.

With initial funding from SNNI, his research team discovered a new blue pigment. This research led to greater discoveries of heat reflecting cool color pigments.      

Mas received his B.S. and M.S. degrees in chemistry from the University of Madras in India and his Ph.D. from the Indian Institute of Technology. He was a National Science Foundation (NSF) postdoctoral fellow at Texas A&M University and then spent 22 years with DuPont Central Research and Development. In 2006, he joined the College of Science at OSU as a Milton Harris Endowed Professor of Materials Science in the Department of Chemistry. Dr. Subramanian holds 54 U.S. patents.
