Jerome Wenger among the world's top 2% of researchers in optics and nanosciences
An international study entitled "updated science-wide author databases of standardized citation indicators" recently measured the impact of scientific citations. 160,000 scientists -corresponding to the world's top 2% in their respective fields- have seen their output analyzed from 1960 to 2019 and classified into different scientific fields.
In this list, Jerome Wenger is ranked #708 out of 56325 researchers in optics (excluding self-citations). His citation score would correspond to a level #1402 out of 75210 researchers in nanosciences.
Our laboratory Institut Fresnel gathers a total of 16 of his researchers into this top-2% international list, which makes it likely the #1 optics lab in France in number of ranked PIs.
Let's make these number even better. Now that we have a measurement standard, the race is on.
