S5: Festschrift for Professor Donald R. Uhlmann


For over five decades, Professor Uhlmann has been inspiring students and colleagues to investigate all there is to know about glasses and amorphous materials. His vast experience in a range of materials and applications has generated research opportunities for many post docs and graduate students who have written their theses under his supervision, and who have gone on to impact the materials science community in their own right. Uhlmann’s contributions to materials touch on traditional and non-traditional glasses, polymers and composites, antimicrobial agents, ferroelectric films, and a host of other technologies.


The purpose of this symposium is to celebrate Don Uhlmann’s contributions to materials science. It is appropriate to gather friends and colleagues at the GOMD meeting in a tribute to Don, a former trustee of the Glass and Optical Materials Division. Uhlmann is a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society and a member of the National Academy of Engineering “for achievements in glass technology and in optical and structural applications of glass.”


This symposium will consist of invited talks covering topics of interest including:

  • Nucleation and crystal growth in glass
  • Phase separation in glass
  • Viscous behavior of glasses
  • Fast-ion transport in glasses
  • Sol-gel derived coatings, including ferroelectrics
  • Wet chemical synthesis of glass, ceramics and hybrids
  • Coatings with self-disinfecting surfaces, and antimicrobials


Session Organizers

  • Lisa C. Klein, Rutgers University
  • Pierre Lucas, University of Arizona
  • Edgar D. Zanotto, Federal University of Sáo Carlos
