It is with deep regret that B-MRS informs the death of its founding member Aldo Felix Craievich, senior professor at USP, which occurred in the early hours of today, April 24, 2023, at the age of 84.
Craievich was a pioneer in glass research in Brazil and one of the protagonists in the history of the National Synchrotron Light Laboratory (LNLS). In addition, he dedicated himself to training users of synchrotron light, mainly in Latin America.
In 2016, B-MRS distinguished him with the Memorial Lecture “Joaquim da Costa Ribeiro” in recognition of his trajectory.
The Executive Board of B-MRS deeply regrets the departure of this Argentine scientist, who had lived in Brazil since 1973, and would like to remember him as a member who made great contributions to our community.
