The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we celebrate the past, present, and future applications of glass. The issue contains a summary of the National Day of Glass Conference, which kicked off North American-based celebrations of IYOG. Plus, an interview with Mathieu Bauchy and John C. Mauro discusses the current progress in harnessing artificial intelligence and machine learning to design new glasses, and the Kreidl Award abstract features research on tellurium dioxide-based glasses.
The International Year of Glass column looks at the use of glass in optical technologies. The “Deciphering the Discipline” column and “Business and Market View” column expand on this topic by overviewing the current fiber optic instrumentation market and investigating new materials for optical applications, respectively.
Finally, the May issue contains a recap of the Unified International Technical Conference on Refractories as well as previews some of the upcoming ACerS meetings.
An important message for readers of our printed magazine
Attentive readers may notice this Bulletin is more slender than usual. An acute, global shortage of paper has led us to reduce the number of pages printed. The paper shortage is expected to continue through spring 2022. For more information on the shortage, contact customer service at firstname.lastname@example.org.
