Cherry A. Murray
Mathematical and Physical Sciences
She made fundamental studies in surface and condensed matter physics, especially using light scattering imaging. She has done seminal work on order-disorder transitions in colloidal systems and Raman scattering from very small monodisperse Si clusters. She was awarded the American Physical Society Maria Goeppert-Mayer Award in 1989, the American Physical Society George E. Pake Prize in 2005, and the National Medal of Technology and Innovation in 2014.
