Researchers at Stanford University recently analyzed citation metrics for more than 160,000 of the world’s most cited (top 2%) researchers in all fields of science to assess career-long impact through 2019, and impact for the year 2019 itself. Thirteen researchers currently or recently affiliated with Drexel Materials including faculty, postdocs, and students, are included in this analysis.
This comprehensive study defines a composite citation index that takes into account total citations, h-index, co-authorship adjusted h-index, citations to single-authored papers, citations to first-authored papers and citations to last-authored papers. The authors used Scopus as their information source.
In the study, researchers were assigned to various subfields. For 2019, among researchers with Materials Science assigned as their first subfield, when self-citations are excluded, Distinguished Professor Michel W. Barsoum tops the list. In the aforementioned composite index, Prof. Barsoum ranks 161st in all fields of science for 2019.
Using the same metric, Distinguished University and Bach Professor Yury Gogotsi was ranked 6th among researchers with Nanoscience and Nanotechnology as their first sub-field and 53rd in all fields.
Professor Michel Barsoum and colleagues have found scientific evidence that parts of the Great Pyramids of Giza were built using an early form of concrete, debunking an age old myth that they were built using only cut limestone blocks.

The work showed, using atomisitic simulations on graphite and instrumented indentation on steel sheets, that layered materials confined under pressure ripple, or buckle, to make waves. In turn, the work has far-reaching implications on the deformations occuring during large-scale geologic processes.

Clarivate Analytics recognizes Dr. Barsoum for his research performance demonstrated by production of multiple highly cited papers that rank in the top 1% by citations for 2018 in the field of Materials Science & Engineering as per Web of Science. Also, among this list are former Layered Solids Group Alumni Prof. Michael Naguib (Assistant Professor, Tulane University) and Dr. Babak Anasori (Research Professor, Drexel University). Other researchers to earn this distinction can be found here.
The distinction derives not fromClarivate Analyticsbut from his peers, who have time and again acknowledged the influence of research contributions in their publications and citations.
