earned his PhD in materials science and engineering from Stanford University and his BS in chemical engineering from the University of California, Berkeley. Wachsman is a Fellow of The American Ceramic Society and The Electrochemical Society. He currently is editor-in-chief of Ionics and former associate editor of the Journal of the American Ceramic Society. His Wachsman research focuses on solid-ion-conducting materials and electrocatalysts and includes the development of solid oxide fuel cells, ion-transport membrane reactors, solid-state gas sensors, and the electrocatalytic conversion of CH4, CO2, and NOx, using advanced ion-conducting materials. Wachsman has more than 200 publications and eight patents on ionic and electronic transport in materials, their catalytic properties, and device performance. Engineers’ Council presents Lin with achievement award Hua-Tay Lin received the Distinguished Engineering Achievement Award of the Engineers’ Council at the 58th Annual Honors and Awards Banquet celebrating 2013 National Engineers Week in February. Lin, distinguished R&D staff member of the Materials Science and Technology Division, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, is a Fellow of The American Ceramic Society and past president of ACerS’s Engineering Ceramics Division. its founders established the Engineers’ Council in 1955 as a not-for-profit professional society organized to advance education in engineering and the sciences, encourage engineering career selection by youth, and recognize engineers for their significant accomplishments. Its National Engineers Week Honors and Awards Banquet is the largest Engineers Week celebration nationwide, with attendance of more than 600 people representing major engineering, manufacturing, education, and technical society organizations. Lin The Engineers’ Council annually awards the “Distinguished Engineering Achievement Award” to honor individuals who are outstanding in professional qualities and have a top reputation for engineering accomplishments and leadership. Lin was recognized 123mm for his “pioneering and seminal contributions and global leadership in the field of science, engineering, and applications of advanced ceramics and composite materials and technologies.” Lin’s work focuses on mechanical reliability of ceramic components and electronic devices, high-temperature mechanical performance of ceramics and composites, high-temperature steam effects on mechanical reliability of ceramics and environmental barrier coating systems, and engineering of microstructure and properties of ceramics, composites, and coatings. Lin serves as the editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Applied Ceramic Technology. He earned his BS degree in physics from National Central University, Taiwan, and his MS and PhD degrees in materials engineering from Auburn University. n Shandong Shengquan Chemical Co Ltd(SQH ) Leading Phenolic Resin Producer In China A joint venture between UK Hepworth and China SQ Group.
