Quadrant, manufacturer of high-performance thermoplastics and composites, conferred the Quadrant Award for the third time for outstanding theses in the area of engineering and high-performance plastics and composites.

This scientific award with a first prize of EUR 15,000 was won by the US researcher Dr. Rodney Priestley for his thesis entitled "Effects of nanoscale confinement and interfaces on the structural relaxation of amorphous polymers monitored at the molecular scale by fluorescence and dielectric spectroscopy".

The second prize of EUR 7,000 went to the Polish-American scientist Dr. Paul Podsiadlo for his thesis entitled "Layer-by-layer assembly of nanostructured composites: mechanics and applications".

The winner of the third prize of EUR 3,000 was Dr. Edwin P. Chan, USA, or his thesis entitled "Adhesion of patterned polymer interfaces".

The members of the academic jury are on the staff of internationally acclaimed universities or institutions, have many years of experience in the field of materials and plastic sciences and supervise numerous doctoral candidates annually.

The next Quadrant Award is planned to be conferred in 2011.
