The Institute of Materials, Minerals and Mining (IOM3) has bestowed the coveted Pfeil Award 2017 for the best paper of particular merit published in the field of Ceramics to our Advanced Ceramics Research Group. The awarded publication was entitled:

“Heat flux mapping of oxyacetylene flames and their use to characterise Cf-HfB2 composites”

The paper, authored from the Department of Materials’ Advanced Ceramics Research Group was judged as the best paper over the last two years. The significance is evidenced by the fact that this research article was adjudged as the most deserving among the 240+ articles published from various eminent groups across the globe in the journal of Advances in Applied Ceramics (AAC) published by Taylor & Francis.

The authors on this collaborative research paper between Loughborough University and Defence Science and Technology Laboratory of the UK include Dr. Anish Paul, Prof. Bala Vaidhyanathan, Prof. Jon Binner, Dr. Andrew Heaton and Prof. Peter Brown. The award certificate and cash prize was presented to the team at the IOM3 Special Awards and Publications Dinner, on 17th October 2017 held in London.

The Department of Materials would like to congratulate the Advanced Ceramics Research Group on their significant achievement.
