The work of two Ph.D. students and their advisors from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering has been featured on both the front and back covers of the April edition of the Journal of the American Ceramic Society. An optical micrograph of a polished and etched hot pressed sample of Ti3SiC2 featured on the front cover is the work of Ph.D. student Anand Murugaiah and advisor Dr. Michel Barsoum. The SEM Micrograph of naturally occurring graphite cones shown on the back cover is the work of Ph.D. student Svetlana Dimovski and advisor Dr. Yury Gogotsi. The back cover image was featured at the 2003 Annual Meeting Ceramigraphic Exhibit. Congratulations to Anand, Svetlana, Michel, and Yury for representing Drexel and our department so prominently!
