Katharine Burr Blodgett (1898-1979), US physicist. Blodgett was the first woman to be awarded a PhD (1926) from Cambridge University. She was employed by General Electric from 1920. She worked with US physical chemist Irving Langmuir (Nobel Prize in Chemistry, 1932) on monomolecular coatings (Langmuir-Blodgett films) designed to cover surfaces such as water, metal and glass. They also devised an apparatus known as the Langmuir-Blodgett trough. Photograph from the General Electric Research Laboratory. Her honours include the 1951 Garvin Medal from the American Chemical Society.
