BLCS Young Scientist Prize Winner

Posted on 10 May 2017

Dr Richard Mandle has won the 2017 British Liquid Crystal Society Young Scientist Prize.

Richard, a Postdoctoral Researcher with John Goodby and John Moore, won the award based upon his work on developing highly-soluble, liquid crystalline dyes for use in low-power, next-generation display technology.

Richard was given £250 and a certificate and, as part of the prize, gave a presentation on his work entitled ‘Liquid-Crystalline, Oligomeric Twist-Bend Nematogens’ at a joint meeting of the UK and German Liquid Crystal Societies in April.

The BLCS Young Scientist Award is normally presented annually for significant research contributions to the field of liquid crystals.
