Professor Glicksman to Receive Research Award from German Foundation

Campus.News is reporting that Professor Martin E. Glicksman '57 was selected as a recipient of the Humboldt Senior Research Prize by the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation in Bonn, Germany.

Dr. Glicksman, the John Tod Horton Professor of Materials Engineering, gave a presentation to potentential Rensselaer students at the New Jersey Rensselaer Medal Reception in 1998. At that time, he spoke about his work on the Isothermal Dendritic Growth Experiment (IDGE), a series of microgravity crystal growth experiments that flew on space shuttle missions in 1994, 1996, and 1997

The von Humboldt Foundation is a non-profit group organized by the Federal Republic of Germany to promote international research co-operation. The foundation takes its name from Alexander von Humboldt, a noted German scientist of the 18th and 19th centuries who distinguished himself in geography, climatology, ecology, and oceanography.
