Will this effect happen for them as well ?.. I am curious because blind people have nothing to do with light.
He moved to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2012 as vice chancellor for research and professor of physics.
Professor Schiffer received the Presidential Early Career Award for Scientists and Engineers (PECASE) from the Army Research Office in 1997, a Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) Award from the National Science Foundation in 1997, and was named an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation Research Fellow in 1998. He was elected a fellow of the American Physical Society in 2004 "for pioneering studies of novel magnetic materials including colossal magnotoresistance manganites and geometrically frustrated magnets."
