This weeklong workshop discusses the frontiers of research in the processing, nanostructure, nanocomposites, structural and functional properties of these novel materials: Polymer Derived Ceramics, also known as PDCs. Topics include chemistry, shaping and forming, lithium intercalation and catalysts, piezoresistive and photoluminescence, membranes, and in-situ processes. The workshop includes trips to the mountains, concerts, and informal meetings in the evenings, which promote give and take of ideas and new directions.
