NATIONAL CERAMIC GROUP HONORS UCSB SCIENTISTS

Tuesday, July 20, 1999 - 17:00
Santa Barbara, CA

David Clarke, professor of materials, and Ce-Wen Nan, a former visiting scientist, at the University of California, Santa Barbara have won this year's Edward C. Henry Award of the American Ceramic Society.

The society's Electronics Division presents the Henry Award every three years for excellence of a paper published in a Society publication during the previous decade on a subject related to electronic ceramics.

Their paper, "Effective Properties of Ferroelectric and/or Ferromagnetic Composites: A Unified Approach and Its Application," was singled out for its innovative approach and lucid presentation.

This is the third paper by Clarke that has been recognized by the society. The first paper drew an award in 1981 from the Nuclear Division, while the second paper was honored by the Basic Science Division in 1982.

Clarke came to UCSB in 1990 after spending seven years at IBM's Research Division in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. He managed the division's Ceramic Sciences Group and the Materials Department.

Before his stint at IBM, he was an associate professor of ceramics at MIT, a group leader of Rockwell International Science Center's Structural Ceramics Group, a lecturer at UC Berkeley and a member of the research staff at the National Physical Laboratory in England.

Nan was a visiting scientist on campus from 1995 to 1997. He was a researcher from the Research Institute for Advanced Materials at Wuhan University in China.The American Ceramic Society (ACerS) is the world's leading organization dedicated to the advancement of ceramics.
