PDF version

Electronic edition

The May 2019 issue of ACerS Bulletin is now available online.

In this month’s issue, feature articles take a look at how ceramics contribute to the modern field of biomaterials. Author Adam E. Jakus, cofounder and chief technology officer at Dimension Inx, describes in the cover story how his company has developed Hyperelastic Bone to aid in bone repair and regeneration. Also, author P. I. Gouma talks about using an isoprene sensor/breathalyzer for monitoring sleep disorders, while authors Oscar Peitl and Edgar D. Zanotto describe how an experimental “bubble map” could increase understanding of the mechanism behind bubble formation in glass-ceramics.

In this month’s ‘Deciphering the Discipline’ column, Washington State University Ph.D. candidate Michael L. Kindle describes his research on glass-ceramic solid-state conductors and glass electrodes and the benefits gained when the energy storage community and glass and ceramics community collaborate more frequently.

Also in the May issue, you will see highlights from the 55th annual Refractories Symposium that was organized by the St. Louis Section and Refractory Ceramics Division in March—which included a record-breaking 234 attendees! Additionally, you’ll want to check out the latest news for International Congress on Glass 2019Global Forum on Advanced Materials for Sustainable Development (GFMAT)–2/International Conference on Innovations in Biomaterials, Biomanufcturing, and Biotechnologies–4, and Energy Harvesting Society meeting 2019—three important meetings coming this spring and summer, respectively, in June, July, and September.

Finally, make sure to take a look at some of the recent big ACerS announcements. From extending the MCARE partnership with KIChE through 2030, to establishing the Pan American Ceramics Congress, to the Board of Directors and Nominating Committee adopting a diversity statement, ACerS continues to push new initiatives and inclusive proposals to better serve its members.
