Petit Institute scientists Mostafa El Sayed and Younan Xia among highest cited researchers
The h-index has become a widely cited measure of a researcher’s influence and citation impact. A researcher with an index of h has published h papers which have been cited in other papers at least h times. If someone has an h-index of 100, it means that 100 papers by this researcher have been cited in at least 100 other research publications.
Scoring an h-index of more than 100 is a singular feat that is achieved by few researchers. According to a recent survey of public Google Scholar profiles, six professors in the College of Sciences, including Petit Institute researchers Mostafa El Sayed and Younan Xia, have achieved this milestone:
- Jean-Luc Bredas, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Mostafa El Sayed, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Uzi Landman, School of Physics
- Seth Marder, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
- Zhong Lin Wang, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry, adjunct
- Younan Xia, School of Chemistry and Biochemistry
