Quantum dots and nanocrystal-embedded glasses for display applications

In this issue we look at ceramics for display applications. The cover story provides an overview of quantum dots and nanocrystal-embedded glasses for display applications, and two columns look at the global market for such devices and microLEDs for display applications, respectively.

Also, this year is Volume 100 of the ACerS Bulletin. Bulletin editor Eileen De Guire delivers a special message to readers in honor of the occasion. A column reviewing the Bulletin’s history by decade will appear in each issue, starting this issue with the 1920s.

Dana Goski began her term as ACerS president at the Virtual Annual Meeting at MS&T20. In an interview, Goski discusses what led her to work in ceramics and her plans for the Society in 2021.

Finally, learn about the ASTM definitive standard tests for refractories, including ruggedness test, interlaboratory study, and precision and bias overview.
