On April 28, 2023, the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) presented an honorary doctoral degree to Chang-Beom Eom, the Raymond R. Holton Chair for Engineering and Theodore H. Geballe Professor in materials science and engineering at the University of Wisconsin-Madison.

Eom was cited for his outstanding scientific contribution to functional energy materials and his educational contribution and longstanding collaboration with DTU.

“He is one of the people that opens up new directions and new opportunities in the field of functional oxide materials,” says Nini Pryds, DTU professor and one of Eom’s collaborators when he was an Otto Mønsted visiting professor at DTU. “He is constantly publishing papers with new ideas, which opens up new ideas for people to follow. He is also a visionary. He is a humble person. And also a great educator and a great person.”

Eom’s research focuses on epitaxial thin film heterostructures of complex oxides and nitrides, including ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, multiferroics, superconductors, two-dimensional electron gases at oxide interfaces, and antiperovskites, with an emphasis on understanding fundamental solid-state phenomena and developing novel device applications.

DTU is one of the best technical universities in the world. Since 1921, it has conferred the degree of Doctor Technices honoris causa on outstanding individuals who fulfill the requirements for obtaining the Doctor Technices degree and have made an important contribution to DTU.
