Prof. Werner Vogel
Glass research was his scientific life’s work. Most notably, he was able to advance the understanding of the characteristics of glass as a material and thus its areas of application quite considerably by using the electron microscope to investigate phase separation phenomena in glass.

Prof. Hideo Hosono
Light-sensitive glasses, defects in glass structures, as well as porous glass-ceramics represent the main focus of his research. With his research work, he contributed toward a better understanding of the defect structures in glasses and the resulting developments in the area of new glasses and glass-ceramics.
