The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at how ceramics and glass engineer a cleaner, safer world. Two feature articles discuss silver-coated ceramic granules used in modular filters, and the intensity and criticality of materials used in clean energy technologies.
Also, see highlights from ACerS 120th Annual Meeting and MS&T18, and read a book review of Modern Ceramic Engineering, 4th edition.
Sylvia Johnson began her term as ACerS president at the Annual Meeting during MS&T18. In a first interview, Johnson discusses what led her to work in ceramics and her plans for the Society in 2019.
Finally, make sure to take a look at the 2018 recipients of the National Science Foundation Ceramics Program awards.
