The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at how ferroelectric materials have revolutionized our electronics-based society since their discovery 100 years ago. Two feature articles discuss the impact of ferroelectrics on industry, and the research that got us here.
Also, find out why the lead-free piezoelectric ceramics market is projected to grow at a much faster pace through 2024 and see highlights from ACerS 121st Annual Business Meeting at MS&T19.
Tatsuki Ohji began his term as ACerS president at the Annual Meeting at MS&T19. In a first interview, Ohji discusses what led him to work in ceramics and his plans for the Society in 2020.
Finally, learn more about the recent recipients of the National Science Foundation Ceramics Program awards and check out the decadal overview of the program.
