The UCLA Henry Samueli School of Engineering and Applied Science will hold its inaugural Nippon Sheet Glass Lecture at 10:30 a.m. on June 3 in Boelter Hall. The newly announced lecture, which has been proposed as an annual event, seeks to honor individuals who are world-renowned for their research in materials science and engineering. Hosted by the department of materials science and engineering, the inaugural talk will be delivered by Professor John D. Mackenzie, the first holder of the UCLA Nippon Sheet Glass Co. Chair. Mackenzie, who held the post from its inception in 1990 until 2003, will discuss "Pre-2000 Nanotechnologies Based on Glass Science." During the lecture, Mackenzie will examine successful industrial businesses using nanosize particles within glassy matrices prior to 2000, looking at the discoveries of photochromic glasses, porous glass and aerogels, semiconductor colored glasses, vycor glasses, and transparent glass ceramics. More recent laboratory advances in the field, such as organic-inorganic hybrids, also will be discussed.
