Chemistry Professor C. Grant Willson was given a National Medal of Technology and Innovation yesterday by President George W. Bush during a ceremony at the White House. The medal is the nation's highest honor for science and technology.


Willson received the honor for the creation of novel lithographic imaging materials and techniques that have enabled the manufacturing of smaller, faster, and more efficient microelectronic components that have improved the competitiveness of U.S. microelectronics industry.

"We're proud to honor a new generation of people who have strived for excellence; people whose discoveries have changed America and the world," said Bush at the ceremony. "Each of our honorees has extended the frontiers of knowledge, and in so doing they've inspired a wave of innovation."

The National Medal of Technology and Innovation honors America’s leading innovators. The award is given to individuals, teams, and/or companies/divisions for their outstanding contributions to the nation’s economic, environmental and social well-being through the development and commercialization of technology products, processes and concepts; technological innovation; and development of the Nation’s technological manpower. The Department of Commerce administers the award, which was established by an act of Congress in 1980.
