SCAPE Professor wins the IEEE Robert E Newnham Ferroelectrics Award

Professor Andrew Bell was recently presented with the award for his contributions to the field of dielectric, piezoelectric and ferroic materials.

He received this award during the banquet of the 2022 International Symposium on the Applications of Ferroelectrics in Tours, France on 30th June, attended by 400 delegates. 

The IEEE Robert E Newnham Ferroelectrics Award, established in 2016, recognises investigators at any stage of their career or for overall contribution to the field of ferroelectrics during their career. The prize constitutes an award of $2,000, a plaque and a certificate. 

Professor Andrew Bell was chosen for this award “for his outstanding contributions to our understanding of structure-property relationships in ferroelectric materials, especially relaxors, and the translation of this knowledge into practical applications".
