1997 NIST Ceramics Division Technical Activities



Stephen W. Freiman


The 1997 NIST Ceramics Division Report is organized in the form of programs, emphasizing a desire to develop more extensive collaborations among both Division and Materials Science and Engineering laboratory personnel, and to conduct focussed activities on a scale that can lead to greater benefits for the U.S. advanced ceramics community.The technical programs of the Division are made up of projects whose primary goal is the understanding of materials phenomena essential to the development of measurement techniques and standards. The participation of U.S. industry in all phases of the research has been strongly encouraged, as typified by the consortia on Machining of Ceramics. Standard Reference Materials and Standard Reference Data remain important outputs of the Ceramics Division efforts.
