Many congratulations to Tara Milne, who has won The Society of Glass Technology's 2020 Oldfield Prize for her work, supervised by Professor Harish Bhaskaran, titled: "Thin-layer monatomic phase-change materials for photonic applications".
This is the first time anyone from Oxford has won it for over a decade (more specifically, since 2007). Many congratulations, Tara!
Under "normal" circumstances Tara would be treated to an awards evening when her certificate would be presented to her, but this will be presented by the Head of Department locally at a later time. Tara will also receive one free year's membership to the Society for Glass Technology and an invitation by them to present her work at their conference in Canterbury during 2021.
