William Huddleston and Kevin Pachuta, graduate students in the Department of Materials Science and Engineering, received second and third place awards, respectively, at the eighth Electronic Materials and Applications Meeting.

The meeting, organized by the American Ceramic Society, was held last month in Orlando.

Huddleston’s and Pachuta’s posters were selected for awards from 43 entries.

Huddleston’s poster was titled “Processing and Performance of Sintered Intercalaction Oxide Cathodes for All-Solid State Structural Lithium Ion Batteries.”

Pachuta’s work was titled Characterization of Solution-Based Exfoliation of Two-dimensional Oxide Nanosheets.”

Both Huddleston and Pachuta are part of the Electro-ceramics Group in the engineering school.

The conference was focused on electroceramic materials and their applications in electronic, electromechanical, magnetic, dielectric and optical components, devices and systems. The American Ceramic Society’s electronics and basic science divisions jointly programmed the event.
