William C. LaCourse, Ph.D., professor of Glass Science in the School of Engineering and associate provost for Statutory Affairs for Alfred University, will be awarded the George W. Morey Award by the Glass and Optical Materials Division of the American Ceramic Society during its May 20-23 meeting in Rochester, N.Y. The award, considered to be among the most prestigious in the field of glass science and engineering, “recognizes achievements in the field of glass science and technology,” according to Barrett G. Potter, Ph.D., Jr., professor in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Arizona State University and chair of the Glass and Optical Materials Division.

LaCourse is receiving the award for his “contributions in glass structure and mechanical properties that have provided novel insights into the structures of As2S3 and silicate fibers, the effects of forming conditions on fiber structure and properties, and the effects of environment on the formation and structure-mechanical properties of glass,” according to Potter.
