Dr. Christopher B. Murray has been a staff scientist in the IBM research Division in Yorktown Heights NY since 1995 and manager of the Nanoscale Materials and Devices Department since 2000. His current research focuses on the synthesis characterization and integration of nanostructured materials with an emphasis on the exploration of finite size effects in nanoscale magnets and semiconductors. He is a Master inventor and patent evaluator for the IBM Corporation. Dr. Murray received his B. Sci. degree in 1989 for Saint Mary‘s University in Halifax Nova Scotia Canada before pursuing graduate studies in chemistry at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.  While at MIT he developed methods for the synthesis and characterization of semiconductor nanocrystals (quantum dots) and nanocrystal superlattices earning his Ph D. degree in 1995. This work on semiconductor nanocrystals was recognized with the awarding of the American Chemical Society’s Nobel Laureate Signature Award in 1997.  The Technology Review recognized Murray’s innovation in the development of nanocrystalline materials with his selection in the first of “Tech 100” in the year 2000, as one of the most influential innovators under 35 years of age. In 2004 he was selected as the “R. B. Woodward Scholar” by Harvard Universities department of Chemistry.  ISI’s Essential Scientific Indicators has analyzed the citation history of a pool of 32,605 papers published in nanotechnology over the last decade to develop an objective “Ranking of Impact in Nanotechnology”. Dr. Murray was highlighted for authoring 2 manuscripts in the top 20 most highly cited papers and ranked 23rd in Dr. Christopher Murray IBM Watson Reseach Center Yorktown, NY USA overall citations a pool of 47,143 authors.
