    Groundbreaking Xerox Physicist Honored
    Xerox Physicist Charles Duke Receives Honor for ‘Groundbreaking’ Research and Leadership.
    ROCHESTER,
    NY, Dec.  2005 – A Xerox Corporation  physicist, Dr. Charles B. Duke,
    has been awarded the American Physical Society’s 2006 George E. Pake
    Prize. Granted annually by the American Physical Society, the Pake
    Prize honors individuals for their work combining original research and
    the leadership of industrial research and development.
    Tunneling in Solids, Inelastic Scattering…
    The
    Society recently cited Duke for his “groundbreaking theoretical
    contributions to the understanding of tunneling in solids, and
    inelastic scattering of low-energy electrons in solids, and for his
    outstanding contributions to Xerox Corporate Research both as an
    intellectual and research manager.”
    Duke, vice president and senior
    research fellow in the Xerox Innovation Group, is a recognized expert
    in the nature of surfaces and interfaces between materials.
    “The
    George E. Pake Prize is a well-deserved honor for Charlie Duke. It is a
    true reflection of his impact on Xerox as a leader, mentor and
    innovator,” said Herv√© Gallaire, president, Xerox Innovation Group and
    chief technology officer.
    Impact on Xerox Developments
    At Xerox,
    Duke’s theoretical work influenced the design of a new class of
    polymer-based photoconductors and dry inks that led to the first Xerox
    products based on flexible-belt photoreceptors, a physical device
    inside a marking system on which an image is written and developed.
    This breakthrough has been at the core of Xerox products since the
    early 1980s.
    Beyond his corporate responsibilities, Duke has
    published more than 370 technical publications, including four books,
    and has supported and led several professional societies. He is a
    fellow of the American Physical Society, the IEEE, and the American
    Vacuum Society. He was elected to the National Academy of Engineering
    in 1993 and to the National Academy of Sciences in 2001.
    Duke served
    as founding editor in chief of the Journal of Materials Research, and
    from 1992 to 2001 he was editor in chief of Surface Science and Surface
    Science Letters. He currently is the chair of a National Research
    Council study of network science that advances knowledge of complex
    systems and processes exhibiting network behaviors.
    Duke joined
    Xerox in 1972. He received a bachelor’s degree in mathematics from Duke
    University in 1959 and a doctorate in physics from Princeton University
    in 1963.
    The Pake Prize
    The George E. Pake Prize was endowed in
    1983 by Xerox Corporation in recognition of the top achievements and
    contributions of Dr. George E. Pake, the founder and first director of
    the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center. The American Physical Society is
    an organization that advances and furthers the knowledge of physics
    worldwide. Duke will receive the Pake Prize in March at the American
    Physical Society’s meeting in Baltimore. Duke is the first Xerox
    researcher to win the Pake Prize for contributions primarily made as an
    active Xerox employee.
