DuPont scientist named one of the world's top young innovators by MIT's 'Technology Review' Magazine

WILMINGTON, Del., Sept. 21, 2004 DuPont scientist Dr. Maria Petrucci-Samija has been named to the 2004 list of the world's 100 Top Young Innovators by Technology Review, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology's (MIT) Magazine of Innovation.

Dr. Petrucci-Samija, 33, represents a growing core of young scientists working on emerging technologies at the DuPont Experimental Station global research and development headquarters here. She joined DuPont in 2002 and is currently leading the DuPont polymer photonics team. Her research focuses on the use of polymers to fabricate optical devices for telecommunications applications. She contributed to the development of the industry's early commercial samples of polymer-based switches and multiplexers, allowing ever-faster telecommunication. Dr. Petrucci-Samija produced and patented a polymer so transparent to light that it rivaled the performance of the state-of-the-art glass optical devices that are the norm in telecommunications circuits today. Her research objective is to integrate photonics devices onto a single chip, providing quicker and more cost effective ways to communicate.

The editors of Technology Review and an elite panel of judges chose 100 individuals (the "TR100") under age 35 whose innovative work in technology has a profound impact on today's world. This year's nominees are recognized for their contributions in transforming the nature of technology and business in industries such as biotechnology and medicine, computing and nanotechnology.

"In the five years since we began naming our annual selection of the world's top innovators under age 35, inclusion among the TR100 has become one of the most prestigious awards for young innovators around the world," said David Rotman, executive editor of Technology Review. "This year's winners all are pioneering fascinating innovations in the fields of biomedicine, computing and nanotechnology, and were chosen after a rigorous selection a
