ACerS Glass & Optical Materials Division

Mission Statement

Our Mission: The Glass & Optical Materials Division of The American Ceramic Society focuses on the scientific research and development, application and manufacture of all types of glass, including fiber optics, the encapsulation of nuclear and hazardous wastes in glasses and the interaction of glass and ceramics in biosystems. Members of this division work with glasses in the optical, aerospace, window and electronic industries among others.

Publication Highlights

As a service to the members of the Glass & Optical Materials Division and those interested in joining The American Ceramic Society, ACerS and Wiley are providing free access to articles published in the International Journal of Applied Glass Science and the Journal of the American Ceramic Society that are relevant to the glass industry.

 

In honor of Earth Day 2018, the theme for this quarter’s articles selected from the ACerS journals is “Working towards greener manufacturing.”  Smarter synthesis methods, reducing production temperatures, and minimizing waste are not only good for our planet, they are good for the bottom line.  We invite you to enjoy these articles, which are free to read until June 30, 2018 and suggest you take a look at the articles selected for all the divisions.

 

After June 30, ACerS members can access the articles by logging in to www.ceramics.org.

Glass Research Group Videos
 

We would like to invite all the active glass research leaders to produce 5~8 min videos (in English) showing their main research lines, faculty and staff, and lab facilities, in a free, creative style. 
We aim to collect hundreds of videos, which should be very useful to stimulate collaboration among glass researchers scattered in the four corners of the planet, and also for prospective students and post-docs that are trying to find alternative study possibilities, new positions and opportunities for research collaboration. These video clips can be professionally produced or home-made. The most important items are the content and keywords, which will make them searchable. Each video will be examined by the four GOMD officers for approval.

 

Please address any questions and submit your video to the GOMD past chair – Prof. Edgar D. Zanotto – dedz@ufscar.br
