Scott Misture is Inamori Professor of Materials Science and Engineering at Alfred University, Alfred, NY. He is an alumnus of Alfred University, having earned his Ph.D. degree in ceramic science in 1994. Misture was a post-doctoral research fellow at Siemens Corporate Research in Munich and at the High Temperature Materials Laboratory at Oak Ridge National Laboratory before returning to Alfred University in 1996.
Misture has authored or co-authored some 140 publications and given more than 340 presentations at professional meetings, including some 30 invited talks at international meetings. He has served as a session organizer for several international meetings and chaired more than 25 sessions at international conferences. His primary interests center on structure characterization of oxides, especially in-situ measurements using synchrotron radiation, neutrons, and laboratory x-ray sources.
Misture is a Fellow of the International Centre for Diffraction Data, as well as the current Chair of its board of directors and a contributing editor to the Powder Diffraction File. He is a member of the Denver X-Ray Conference Organizing Committee and conducts full-day workshops on in-situ diffraction and diffraction optics, and has served as an ex-officio member of the U.S. National Committee for Crystallography of the National Academy of Sciences since 2008.
Misture serves the materials science community as a principal editor of the Journal of Materials Research and recently chaired the Basic Science Division of The American Ceramic Society as well as its Membership Committee.
Misture’s current research includes study of oxide nanosheets for photocatalytic and electrochemical applications and solid oxide fuel cell catalysts. Most recently, he has been engaged in understanding self-assembly of nanosheets and characterizing their interfaces with gas and liquid environments.
