What does the world’s thinnest glass looks like? -- 0.12 mm, similar to the thickness of an A4 sheet of print paper. This type of glass has been produced in China. 

On October 15th, U.S. EST time, ACerS 120th Annual Meeting at Materials Science & Technology 2018 was hosted in Ohio. Peng Shou who is the president of the International Commission on Glass (ICG), director of the State Key Laboratory for Advanced Technology of Float Glass and president of Bengbu Design & Research Institute for Glass Industry (BDRIGI), was awarded the Medal for Leadership in the Advancement of Ceramic Technology. He became the first Chinese scientist to win this prize in the field of world glass technology. 

The Medal for Leadership in the Advancement of Ceramic Technology awarded by the American Ceramic Society has been honored as the top individual achievement award in the field of ceramic technology in the world. Year upon year, the American Ceramic Society selects a winner from the international community, offering this award to scientists who have made extraordinary contributions in promoting scientific and technological progress, as well as the development of cutting-edge technologies. 

The fact that a Chinese scientist won this year, indicates that the world fully affirms and recognizes the technological innovation and independent intellectual property rights achievements of the Chinese glass industry.
