 TWO KODAK RESEARCHERS HONORED
 FOR MANUFACTURING PROCESS STUDY
 ROCHESTER, N.Y., March 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Two Eastman Kodak Company (NYSE: EK) researchers today received the company's 10th annual C.E. Kenneth Mees Award for a study of light sensitive materials used in the film manufacturing process.
 The study, by Mark R. Kurz, Motion Picture technical staff, and Steven J. Weinstein, Manufacturing Research and Engineering Organization, will help Kodak reduce variability and improve quality in films, according to James W. Meyer, director of Imaging Research and Chief Technical Officer of the Kodak Imaging Group.
 "The award recognizes the high quality of report writing and documentation as well as imaginative experimentation which led to new understanding of the film coating process," Meyer said. The award-winners used computer modeling and unique experimental methods to examine how materials flow during the coating of multi-layer films.
 The Mees Award, named after Kodak's first research and development director, is given annually by the Kodak Research Scientific Council to honor excellence in science and technical report writing.
 Several other papers submitted in the competition earned honorable mention. The authors:
 -- Thomas Whitesides, David Ross and Bonnie Howell, all in the Imaging Research Laboratories, were recognized for a report which analyzes a process to manufacture toner particles for high-quality electrophotographic applications.
 -- Hsien-Che Lee, Imaging Research Laboratories, was honored for two reports. One describes a mathematical model for dividing an image electronically into regions or segments for image processing. The other involves high-quality electronic display of color images.
 -- Scott Daly, Imaging Research Laboratories, also earned honorable mention with a report on a mathematical way to describe the human visual response in order to predict and evaluate the quality of all types of images.
 -- Tetsui Ohara of the Kodak Japan Research and Development Center received a special recognition certificate. His report describes an experimental system which significantly improves the search time for equipment retrieving images stored on microfilm.
