Laszlo Mihaly was elected a Fellow of the American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS) for his contributions in optical studies of high temperature superconductors and fullerene materials; and for developing far infrared methods for electron spin resonance. He used infrared light and high magnetic fields to study the properties of correlated electrons in solids, most recently in antiferromagnets and other unusual magnetic materials. Laszlo currently serves as Department Chair. He is the recipient of the SUNY Chancellor's Award for Excellence in teaching and the SBU Dean's Award for Excellence in Service to Education by a Graduate Program Director. He is Fellow of the American Physical Society and he has been elected external member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.
