The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at joining of dissimilar materials. The cover article overviews the work being done on ultrashort pulse laser welding to join metals and glass. An extended abstract details how metal–organic frameworks and inorganic glasses were joined to create a hybrid composite.
The “Deciphering the Discipline” column and “Business and Market View” column expand on the theme by looking at additional joining methods and the welding equipment and supplies market, respectively. Another article explores joining in a difference sense by summarizing a virtual student exchange program that joined students around the world during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Also, the May issue contains a feature story describing the use of failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) to design a spark plus insulator.
Finally, this month’s “Into the Bulletin Archives” column takes a look at the Bulletin’s history in the 1950s, including a look at the first Society-owned headquarters in Columbus, Ohio.

by Richard M. CarterUltrashort pulse laser welding has the potential to transform optomechanical component manufacturing—and research around the world is helping to move this technique from concept to industry.
by William J. Walker, Jr.Failure modes and effects analysis (FMEA) is a systematic approach to reduce technical risks of a product or process by identifying all potential failure modes and their causes.
by Courtney Calahoo, Louis Longley,Thomas D. Bennett, and Lothar WondraczekElaborating on the recent discovery of glass formation at the phosphate-imidazolate join, we fabricate amorphous organic–inorganic composites using metal-organic frameworks and inorganic glass.
by Iva Milisavljevic, Jenna Metera, Kana Tomita, and Yiquan WuIn August 2020, a group of Ph.D. students participated in a two-day Virtual Student Exchange Program, which offered them a way to replicate some of the in-person experiences of meetings that are currently unavailable due to the coronavirus pandemic.
