2013 Fellows puters, and was the first to publish information on the technology in English and Chinese. His current work is on development of a thin ceramic decoupling capacitor with low inductance and high capacitance for high-speed LSI for high-end computers and environmental and energy materials. A member of ACerS since 1990, Imanaka received the Society’s Richard M. Fulrath Award in 2006. He has served as organizer, steering committee member, and advisory board member for MS&T, ICCPS, and PACRIM meetings. He is a member of the Electronics Division and NICE. Jacqueline A. Johnson is a faculty member in the Biomedical Engineering Department at the University of Tennessee Space Institute, Tullahoma. Johnson Her major research interest is in structural characterization of materials, particularly glasses, glass-ceramics, nanomaterials, and carbon films. She is currently developing a new mammography system using a novel glass-ceramic plate with the goals of improving the image quality and reducing the cost of digital mammography. A member of ACerS’s Glass & Optical Materials Division since 2000, Johnson has 100 peer-reviewed papers and a US patent to her credit. Yutai Katoh is a research staff member in the Materials Science and Technology Division of Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Tenn. He is a holder of 14 patents with Katoh several patents pending in the area of ceramic and composite processing. Katoh’s research interests and activities span broad areas of materials science and engineering for advanced energy systems, with particular emphases on advanced ceramics, ceramic composites, and irradiation effects in materials for fusion and fission reactors. Katoh has published more than 250 peer-reviewed papers. He is affiliated with ACerS’s Engineering Ceramics and Nuclear & Environmental Technology Divisions. Allan P. Katz is senior program manager in the Composites Branch at the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Wright- Katz Patterson Air Force Base, Ohio. His career has focused on high-temperature ceramics for structural applications, including development of refractory carbides and nitrides, advanced fibers, and fiber-reinforced composites for a variety of aerospace applications. He now leads the Air Force program to develop SiC-based composites for application in the hot section of aerospace turbine engines. Katz has been active in ACerS’s Engineering Ceramics Division. Do Kyung Kim is professor of materials science and engineering at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, Daejeon. Before joining the faculty of KAIST in Kim 1994, he worked for the Korea Agency for Defense Development. He also has been a visiting professor at University of California, San Diego (1992), NIST (2002), and UC, Berkeley (2008). Kim has authored more than 150 technical articles and has filed 17 patents in the United States, Japan, and Korea. He is a member of the Basic Science and Engineering Ceramics Divisions. Martha L. Mecartney is professor of chemical engineering and materials science at the University of California, Irvine. She has published more than 100 articles on microstructural development in ceramics for applications in electronics and energy. Her research investigates the role of water vapor on enhanced diffusion in ceramics, uses computational modeling to predict properties of multiphase ceramics, Mecartney and evaluates radiation damage in ceramics for nuclear applications. An ACerS member since 1978, Mecartney is a past chair of the Society’s Basic Science Division and also holds membership in the Society’s Nuclear, Electronics, Engineering Ceramics, and Art, Archaeology & Conservation Science Divisions.
