Abstract

There are eras in research when days are filled with excitement because unique materials are being produced and researchers “think what nobody else has thought” (Albert von Szent Gyorgyi). Such were the periods when many new optical glasses emerged from the laboratories of the Eastman Kodak Company and when the hot pressing technology was applied to produce new polycrystalline materials. This paper discusses the people and accomplishments of those periods.
