Jeffry W. Stevenson is a Laboratory Fellow at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Richland, WA. He received a B.S. in Ceramic Engineering from the University of Missouri-Rolla (now Missouri University of Science and Technology) in 1977, and a Ph.D. in Ceramic Engineering from the same institution in 1991. After receiving his B.S. degree, he was Ceramist and General Manager of Van Briggle Art Pottery in Colorado Springs, CO for 11 years. After receiving his Ph.D., he became a research scientist at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, where he is currently a Laboratory Fellow in PNNL’s Energy Materials Group.
Since joining PNNL in 1993, his work has focused primarily on the development and characterization of electro-ceramic materials and devices, including solid oxide fuel cells (SOFC) and gas separation membranes. In recent years, his primary responsibility has been the leadership of PNNL’s SECA Core Technology Program R&D activities. In this role, he directs work in a number of areas, including cathode and anode materials, alloy interconnect materials, protective coatings for alloy interconnects, contact and sealing materials for SOFC stacks, and cost-effective cell fabrication techniques.
Dr. Stevenson holds 9 U.S. patents and has published over 125 technical papers. He has been a member of The American Ceramic Society since 1974 and is part of the Engineering Ceramics Division. He is a member of the organizing committee for the International Symposium on SOFC: Materials, Science and Technology, which is held annually at the ICACC meeting (Daytona Beach, FL), and is also an Associate Editor for the Journal of the American Ceramic Society.
