The membership magazine of The American Ceramic Society
In this issue we look at burgeoning 5G wireless communication systems. The cover story looks at ceramic materials that will help realize 5G technologies, and a feature story looks at how 5G technology will affect smartphone device design.
Like cellular networks, airplanes also connect the world. A second feature story looks at carbon fiber-reinforced carbon and graphite composites for aircraft brakes.
The August issue contains the annual USGS Minerals Commodity Summaries. The section opens with a summary of the main trends discussed in this year's 2019 report. Then, a two-page infographic highlights several salient statistics including end use industries, global production trends, and leading producers.
Also, read how the 5G chipset market is expected to witness tremendous growth in the “Business and Market View” column, and see recaps from four important meetings that recently took place—Clay 2019, Cements 2019, Ceramics Expo, and ICG.
Finally, meet the 2019–2020 ACerS officers, and check out deadlines for upcoming nominations.
