Description

This volume contains 20 manuscripts presented during the Materials Science & Technology 2017 Conference (MS&T'17), held October 8-12, 2017 at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center, Pittsburgh, PA. Papers from the following symposia are included in this volume:

  • 9th International Symposium on Green and Sustainable Technologies for Materials Manufacturing and Processing
  • Advances in Dielectric Materials and Electronic Devices
  • Construction and Building Materials for a Better Environment
  • Innovative Processing and Synthesis of Ceramics, Glasses and Composites
  • Materials Issues in Nuclear Waste Management in the 21st Century
  • Materials Development for Nuclear Applications and Extreme Environments
  • Materials for Nuclear Energy Applications
  • Nanotechnology for Energy, Healthcare and Industry
  • Processing and Performance of Materials Using Microwaves, Electric and Magnetic Fields, Ultrasound, Lasers, and Mechanical Work – Rustum Roy Symposium

These symposia provided a forum for scientists, engineers, and technologists to discuss and exchange state-of-the-art ideas, information, and technology on advanced methods and approaches for processing, synthesis, characterization, and applications of ceramics, glasses, and composites. 

Each manuscript was peer-reviewed using The American Ceramic Society's review process. The editors wish to extend their gratitude and appreciation to their symposium co-organizers, to all of the authors for their valuable submissions, to all the participants and session chairs for their time and effort, and to all the reviewers for their comments and suggestions. 

We hope that this volume will serve as a useful reference for the professionals working in the field of materials science.
