2019 Roland B. Snow award and ceramographic competition winners announced

The Ceramographic Exhibit & Competition, is an annual poster exhibit to promote the use of microscopy and microanalysis as tools in the scientific investigation of ceramic materials. This year’s competition was held during the ACerS Annual Meeting in September in Portland, Or., in the Oregon Convention Center. Winners were selected for the scanning electron microscopy, transmission electron microscopy categories, Optical/Confocal Microscopy and Undergraduate Studies. The Roland B. Snow award was presented for Best in Show.
