Clifford Paterson Prize Lecture: Professor Mohan Edirisinghe

25 April 2024 18:30 - 19:30 The Royal Society Free Watch online
Book event
A novel polymer fibre manufacturing process, Nozzle-Pressurised Gyration, which massively enhances the benefits of Pressurised Gyration, has been created in 2022. It can be used vertically (shown here) or horizontally, and produces more uniform aligned fibres. While having the capability of generating high fibre yields, it draws on the benefit of having nozzles rather than orifices on the vessel, which impart fibre uniformity and alignment.

Join us for the Clifford Paterson Prize Lecture given by 2024 winner Professor Mohan Edirisinghe.

The Clifford Paterson Medal and Lecture 2024 is awarded to Professor Mohan Edirisinghe for seminal research in engineering science of making small structures from soft matter in novel scalable ways, creating new frontiers in functional applications causing major advances in manufacturing and healthcare. 

The Clifford Paterson Medal and Lecture is given for outstanding contributions in the field of engineering. The lectureship was originally endowed by The General Electric Company in memory of Clifford Paterson FRS, who founded the GEC Research Laboratories in 1919. Originally the lectures were given on electrical science and technology but this was later broadened to any aspect of engineering. The first lecture was given in 1975. The medal is of bronze, is awarded biennially and is accompanied by a gift of £2,000.
