Stevenson elected Fellow of the American Ceramic Society

Jeffry Stevenson, a Laboratory Fellow at the Department of Energy's Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, has been elected a Fellow of the American Ceramic Society.

A leader in energy materials research, Stevenson has focused his research at PNNL on the development, characterization and fabrication of electrical ceramic materials and devices. A large body of research and professional leadership has established Stevenson as an international expert on the emerging applied science of solid oxide fuel cells — a highly efficient and clean technology for electric power generation.

Over a 35-year career, he has authored or co-authored more than 135 technical papers and two book chapters, and he has received nine U.S. patents.

Election to American Ceramic Society Fellow is a peer recognition that requires the nomination by at least seven ACerS members. Society Fellows are selected for contributions to the ceramic sciences, either through broad and productive scholarship in ceramic science and technology, by achievement in ceramic industry or by outstanding service to the Society. New Fellows will be recognized at the ACerS 115th Annual Meeting on Oct. 28, 2013 in Montréal, Canada. 

Stevenson earned a bachelor's degree in ceramic engineering in 1977 from Missouri University of Science and Technology and a doctorate in ceramic engineering in 1991 from Missouri University of Science and Technology.

Founded in 1898, the American Ceramic Society is the professional membership organization for international ceramics and materials scientists, engineers, researchers, manufacturers, plant personnel, educators and students. Drawing members from 60 countries, ACerS serves the informational, educational and professional needs of its 6,000 members and provides them with access to periodicals and books, meetings and expositions, and technical information. ACerS also maintain an extensive materials science website that provides online access to its journals, publications, science and career forums and specialized technical knowledge centers.
