Russian Nobel Laureate Knighted in the UK
Geim and Novoselov

Russian-born Nobel laureate Konstantin Novoselov has been awarded a knighthood of the United Kingdom for his contributions to science. 

      Together with a British colleague, Andre Geim, he discovered graphene - the thinnest and, at the same time, the strongest material known to also conduct electricity and heat better than any other material. In 2010 the scientists gained the Nobel Prize for their discovery.

      Andre Geim was also awarded a knighthood, just few days before Novoselov, on May 4. The ceremony was done by Prince Charles. Novoselov was knighted by Princess Anna, Queen Elizabeth's daughter. Now the both scientists can add the title "sir" to their names. 

      The 38-old Novoselov was born in Russia’s Nizhny Tagil. He undertook doctoral studies in the Netherlands and lated moved to the UK's University of Manchester to work with his advisor, Geim. They both are also graduating students of the Moscow Physics and Technological Institute.
