Penn State And Glass Commission To Present Weyl Award

March 20, 2001
The Pennsylvania State University and the International Commission on Glass have announced the presentation of the 2001 Woldemar A. Weyl International Glass Science Award to Dr. Heike Ebendorff-Heidepriem of the Otto Schott Institute at the Friedrich-Schiller University in Jena, Germany. She will receive the award and present the Weyl Lecture at the XIX International Congress on Glass, to be held July 1- 7 in Edinburgh, Scotland. The prestigious Weyl Award is made every three years to recognize a young scientist whose work in glass science has shown ingenuity, initiative and, above all, innovative thinking. Dr. Ebendorff-Heidepriem has demonstrated these outstanding qualities in her research on fluoride phosphate glasses doped with rare earths, involving their preparation technology and physical behavior.
