The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at current and developing energy storage technologies. The cover story looks at unlocking lithium's potential with ceramic solid electrolytes, and two columns review nanoparticles for Li-ion battery cathode and residential energy storage, blockchain, and energy sharing systems.
A feature story discusses the importance of inspiring the next generation through ceramics and glass education outreach. The Ceramic and Glass Industry Foundation offers a number of outreach programs with which you can get involved.
The September issue contains the annual announcement of ACerS Awards for 2019. The Society will honor members and corporations at the Awards Banquet of the 121st Annual Meeting in October.
Also, see the recap from the combined GFMAT-2/Bio-4 meeting, and read the latest updates for three upcoming meetings—MS&T19, EMA 2020, and ICACC20.
Finally, a “Letter to the Editor” looks to petition the United Nations to declare 2022 as The International Year of Glass.
