The Luckhurst-Samulski Prize Liquid Crystals

Liquid Crystals

The Luckhurst-Samulski Prize was launched in 2009 and awarded for the first time in 2010. 

The Prize of £1000 is for the best paper published each year in Liquid Crystals and the full terms and conditions of the Prize can be found here. The Prize is intended to be a real stimulus to the liquid crystal community and is presented alternately at either the ILCC or the ECLC, depending on the year. 

The Prize is named in honour of Professors Geoffrey Luckhurst and Ed Samulski, not only in recognition of their roles in founding the Journal but also for their outstanding contributions to liquid crystal science.
