John Goodenough, professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering, received the Fermi Prize at a ceremony in Washington, D.C.

Here are a couple of photos from the ceremony. Others are available at the Department of Energy Web site.

The award recognizes Goodenough “For his lasting contributions to materials science and technology, especially the science underlying lithium-ion batteries.”

Goodenough shared the award with Siegfried S. Hecker of Stanford University.

Goodenough developed materials critical to the development of lightweight and rechargeable lithium-ion batteries, which have been essential to the development of laptop computers, cellphones and other mobile devices.

Included in the photo are Chu, John Holdren, Hecker and Goodenough. The other two people in the photo were not identified.
