The Fernand Holweck 2021 medal and prize were awarded to Guy Le Lay for his work

Professor G. Le Lay is an internationally recognised specialist for his work on surfaces and interfaces. His recent research on the realisation and study of the emerging properties of new two-dimensional allotropes of silicon, germanium, tin and lead (called artificial Xenes) has been at the origin of numerous international studies and passionate debates, giving his work an undeniable pioneering character and G. Le Lay an exceptional international recognition.
CINaM therefore congratulates Professor Guy Le Lay for a career that has been honoured with the Holweck 2021 medal and prize.
