Professor Rondinelli wins a 2016 3M Non-Tenured Faculty Award, which is intended to help young faculty achieve tenure while teaching and conducting research. The award recognizes Rondinelli for his work on the theory, design, and application of complex ternary/quaternary metal oxide ceramics, including crystals and thin films, for low-power electronics, high-temperature applications, and non-linear optical devices.

Recipients of this highly competitive award are nominated by 3M researchers annually and selected for their outstanding research, experience and academic leadership. The grant provides an unrestricted gift of $15,000 per year for three years.
