Laurent receives the Lamb prize

published on


The Lamb prize of the French Académie des Sciences was awarded to Laurent Calvez in order to promote research and studies concerning the national defense of France.
These research aim in particular at developing infrared materials for night vision and thermal displays which are necessary for defense applications. His contribution was especially innovating in two fields : IR glassceramics with high thermo-mechanical properties as well as the development of a new synthesis route for such materials based on a mechanical process instead of a thermal process. A transfer of this innovating technology is currently in progress to the DIAFIR company.
