6th Otto Schott Research Award
Prof. Dr. Reinhard Conradt, RWTH Aachen, Germany
He conceived a highly versatile approach to thermodynamic modelling of oxide melts and glasses based on constitutional relations of equilibrium phases and achieved pioneering results of this approach in evaluating physical and chemical properties, particularly chemical resistance of technical multi-component glasses.
