Advanced ceramics and glasses are ubiquitous at multiple scales in various modern applications: in virtual reality headsets, implantable biomedical devices, all-solid-state batteries, etc. The long-term structural reliability of these materials is a key issue determining device performance in these applications. Thus, identifying correlations between the processing and manufacturing methods and mechanical properties is essential. Ultimately, process-microstructure-properties relationships would help further push the limits of glasses and ceramics performance. Recent trends in ceramics and glass research tackle new processes for densification and microstructure control, extreme mechanical properties characterization, and data-driven approaches to interlink process, properties, and characterization.
This interdisciplinary symposium will feature the recent process in the field with experimental, computational, and data-driven experts from academia, national labs and industry. Altogether, we will discuss recent developments in processing, manufacturing and mechanical characterization for the next generation of glasses and ceramics and identify opportunities and challenges.
