NRI Scientist Wins Top Award In Glass Science

The Indian-American scientist, who first compared the movements of atoms in glass to the wiggling of jellyfish in water, has won the top award in the field of glass science.

Himanshu Jain, director of the International Materials Institute for New Functionalities in Glass (IMI) at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, received the Otto Schott Research Award on July 2, at the International Congress on Glass in Strasbourg, France.

The biennial award, which carries a cash prize of $34,055 (25,000 Euros), is the most prestigious prize for glass research. Jain, a professor of materials science and engineering at Lehigh, shares the award with Walter Kob of the University of Montpellier in France.
