ACerS Electronics Division
Our Mission: The Electronics Division of The American Ceramic Society focuses on electronic materials and devices. Traditional areas of interest include dielectric and ferroelectric materials, high-k’ and tunable dielectrics for communications applications; ferroelectric and piezoelectric ceramics; ceramics for sensors, fuel cells, batteries, superconductors, and other renewable energy technologies; and recently, thermoelectric ceramics. In addition to the traditional areas, the division also explores emerging areas such as nanoscience, electronic composites, and new ceramic devices.

Dr. Neamul H. Khansur and co-authors Tadej Rojac, Dragon Damjanovic, Christina Reinhard, Kyle G. Webber, Justin A. Kimpton, and John E. Daniels received the 2016 Edward C. Henry Award for their publication in the Journal of the American Ceramic Society, Electric-Field-Induced Domain Switching and Domain Texture Relaxations in Bulk Bismuth Ferrite. Dr. Khansur authored the paper while a Ph.D. student in Professor John Daniels’ group at UNSW, and is currently a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Erlangen-Nuremberg.

The Electronics Division celebrated its 50th Anniversary in 2008. Read the commemorative brochure on the history of the division, put together by Bob Schwartz for the October 2008 division business meeting in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
The Electronics Division of The American Ceramic Society was established by the Board of Trustees at its December 1957 meeting on recommendation from a newly created Electronic Ceramic Advisory Committee, composed of Seymour Blum, Edward J. Smoke and E. C. Henry, who acted as chairman of the committee. The division held its first sessions at the 60th Annual Meeting in Pittsburgh, PA, in April 1958. This was followed by a first Fall Meeting at Asbury Park, NJ, October 8-10, which was attended by 198 registered participants.
