The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at the future of renewable energy technologies. The first feature story looks at opportunities for the ceramics community in the rapidly growing flow battery market, and the second feature story overviews recent technological advances that help move solid oxide fuel cells toward widespread applications.
In addition to the cover stories, the U.S. Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office provides a synopsis of the programs AMO offers to support U.S. manufacturers.
This volume (Vol. 101) of the ACerS Bulletin coincides with the United Nations International Year of Glass. A regular column highlighting the International Year will appear in each issue, and the first column outlines what the ACerS journals plan to do in recognition of IYoG.
Beth Dickey began her term as ACerS president at the Annual Meeting at MS&T21. In an interview, Dickey discusses what led her to work in ceramics and her plans for the Society in 2022.
Finally, learn about the plurality of thermoelectrics in application and factors driving the current global semiconductor chip shortage in two columns.
