Decker is recognized as one of the world’s leading experts in the area of radiation-induced reactions in polymeric materials. His main research interests are in ultrafast light-induced polymerizations, the synthesis and characterization of UV-cured coatings and nanocomposite materials, photostabilization of polymers, and laser-assisted chemical processing of polymers. He has contributed more than 300 publications, patents and book chapters to the coatings and scientific literature as well as given more than 300 lectures at scientific meetings.
Decker will receive the Roy W. Tess Award on August 17, 2009 during the 238th National Meeting of the American Chemical Society in Washington, D.C. The award is funded by a grant to the PMSE from Dr. and Mrs. Roy W. Tess. The purpose of the award is to encourage interest and progress in coatings science technology and engineering and to recognize significant contributions to the field. The award consists of a plaque and a $3,000 cash prize.
