IKZ researcher Dr. Reinhard Uecker receives Frank Prize from the International Organization for Crystal Growth (IOCG)

Award for new findings in the field of crystal growing

Prof. Dr. Darrell Schlom, Cornell University, USA, and Dr. Reinhard Uecker, Leibniz-Institut für Kristallzüchtung (IKZ), Germany, received the Frank Prize of the International Organization for Crystal Growth (IOCG) for their pioneering contributions to the development of new perovskite substrates enabling strain engineering of functional oxides.

The prize was jointly awarded to both scientists at the ICCGE-19 in Keystone, Colorado, USA, from 28 July to 2 August 2019. The IOCG Frank Prize will be awarded for significant fundamental contributions to crystal growing and its global impact on science and technology.
