William Huddleston and Kevin Pachuta received 2nd and 3rd place awards, respectively, out of 43 posters at the 8th Electronic Materials and Applications Meeting (EMA) organized by the American Ceramic Society (ACerS) in Orlando (Jan 18-20, 2017). Will's work was on "Processing and Performance of Sintered Intercalaction Oxide Cathodes for All-Solid State Structural Lithium Ion Batteries" and Kevin's work was on "Characterization of Solution-Based Exfoliation of Two-dimensional Oxide Nanosheets". Both Will and Kevin are a part of the Electroceramics Group at the department. EMA 2017 is an international conference focused on electroceramic materials and their applications in electronic, electromechanical, magnetic, dielectric and optical components, devices and systems. It is jointly programmed by ACerS’ Electronics and Basic Science divisions.
Warren E. Rupp Asst. Prof. Alp Sehirlioglu has been appointed an Associate Editor for the Journal of the American Ceramic Society (JACerS). JACerS is ranked #2 in the Materials Science-Ceramics category and has been providing scientists, engineers, and students with critically assessed, original research for nearly 100 years. Topics cover a broad range including: Glass science, crystal chemistry, microscopy and microstructure, bioceramic science, powder processing and colloidal science.
Prof. Jennifer L.W. Carter, will receive this year’s award “for dedicated and effective instruction and mentoring of students at various stages of their educational experience in addition to impacting undergraduate engineering education.” This award, accompanied by $3000, was established in 1952 in memory of an outstanding teacher in metallurgy and dean of engineering who was president of ASM in 1942. The award recognizes young teachers of materials science, materials engineering, and design and processing, by rewarding them for their ability to impart knowledge and enthusiasm to students. The recipient must be 35 years of age or younger by May 15 of the year in which the award is made.
