From Molecules to Manufacturing: Products Arising from Polymer Derived Ceramics

Focus Polymer Derived Ceramics (PDC) focused workshops and meetings

The purpose of this group is to draw experts and young scientists into a common purpose to benefit intellectually, technologically and socially around this exciting area of scientific endeavor. The TIG will serve as a platform to connect with new research communities from different angles and points of view, both within and outside the United States. We expect fields such as Electronics, Optoelectronics, Energy Storage, Super-Turbines and Advanced Manufacturing to gain a foothold in this community. The Group will organize bi-annual PDC focused workshops and meetings as well as introduce new PDC related symposia at established ACerS conferences. Possible outcomes include books, conference proceedings and peer-reviewed papers in ACerS supported journals and media. The Group will lobby for research funding in the Government and Industry.

1. The PDC TIG is organizing a symposium entitled “H5: Polymer-derived ceramics and composites” at the International Conference on High Temperature Ceramic Matrix Composites ( HTCMC 9) in Toronto in June 2016. List of invited speakers/participants is currently being prepared. In addition the TIG will organize a symposium on PDCs at the 12th Pacific Rim Conference on Ceramic and Glass Technology (PACRIM 12) in Hawaii in 2017.
2. The PDC TIC is organizing and ACerS endorsed PDC WORKSHOP: MEMBRANES, COATINGS, FIBERS AND COMPOSITES, Dates: week of 19th-24th June-2016, exactly one week prior to HTCMC. Location: Boulder, CO.
3. Singh has started a new website (polymerceramics.weebly.com) that contains a list of recent journal papers authored by TIG members and contact information of PDC experts in the US and Europe.
