The 2011 Lemelson-MIT Prize has been awarded to materials scientist and physicist John A. Rogers, in part because his research has helped create products and companies across disciplines in areas like health, fiber optics, semiconductor manufacturing and solar power, according to MIT.

The Lemelson-MIT Prize carries with it $500,000, and Rogers will accept the award during the Lemelson-MIT Program’s fifth-annual EurekaFest on June 15 – 18, where he will give a presentation about his research and its end results. Rogers is co-founder and director of Cambridge maker of flexible semiconductor products mc10 Inc. and North Carolina-based solar power technology company Semprius Inc., among various other companies.
