ALFRED U RESEARCHER TO BE HONORED IN SPAIN

An Alfred University researcher will be honored in Spain Thursday for his work on self-propagating high-temperature synthesis.

Dr. Richard M. Sprigg, director of the New York State Center for Advanced Ceramic Technology, will receive the Medal of Honor at the IV International Self-Propagating High-Temperature Synthesis Symposium in Toledo, Spain.

The award medal is made from a copper-aluminum-nitride alloy produced using the self-propagating high-temperature synthesis process in which a spark ignites powders and the heat generated by the chemical reaction creates a new ceramic material.
