Richard Blythe wins APS "Outstanding Referee" award

Dr Richard Blythe, member of the Institute for Condensed Matter and Complex Systems, has been recognised by the publisher of top physics journal "Physical Review Letters" as an "Outstanding Referee". This award, bestowed by the American Physical Society, is in appreciation of the care he has taken in reviewing papers submitted to APS journals to help ensure that those that are eventually published meet the highest scientific standards.

Dr Blythe is one of about 150 physicists from 35 countries selected to appear on the 2010 roll of honour for the quality, number and timeliness of reports on articles submitted to APS journals. He joins Prof Mike Cates FRS as the second Edinburgh physicist to receive this award.
