A.T. Charlie Johnson
Rebecca W. Bushnell Professor of Physics and Astronomy
A condensed matter experimentalist, Professor Johnson’s research focuses on the physics of nanoscale materials such as graphene and carbon nanotubes. He is a leading expert on transport phenomena (energy, charge, and spin) in such systems.
Johnson has served as Director of the Nano/Bio Interface Center, a National Science Foundation-funded Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center, and was recently named as a member of the Defense Science Study Group. He is an elected Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and of the American Physical Society, and has been recognized for excellence in teaching and mentorship with the Provost’s Lindback Foundation Award for Distinguished Teaching and the Penn Arts & Sciences Dean’s Award for Undergraduate Research Mentorship.
