The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at hidden ceramics that impact the world. The cover article discusses the history of how Corning invented catalytic substrates and filters to help reduce air pollution from vehicles. An accompanying application note looks at using silicon nitride as a surgical implant material.
Also, emerging opportunities for transparent ceramics and the mechanics behind porcelain strength are discussed in two columns.
The April issue includes the second issue of Ceramic & Glass Manufacturing, ACerS' new B2B magazine. This issue’s theme is “Breaking in: A guide to working with big business” and features a story on the benefits of small companies, including being fast and flexible.
Finally, several ACerS meetings were rescheduled due to concerns about COVID-19 since the April issue went to print. Find out which meetings were affected at this link.
