An ACerS member since 1974, he is affiliated with the Engineering Ceramics Division. He also is a member of the organizing committee for the International Symposium on SOFC: Materials, Science, and Technology, which is held annually at the ICACC meeting (Daytona Beach, Fla.), and is an associate editor of JACerS. Wang nanowires. He coined the term and pioneered the field of piezotronics and piezo-phototronics by introducing the piezoelectric potential gated charge transport process in fabricating new Omer Van der Biest electronic and optoelectronic devices. has been a professor in Wang is a fellow of numerous US and the Department of international technical societies. He Metallurgy and received ACerS’s 2009 Purdy Award Materials Engineering and 2012 Edward Orton Memorial at Leuven University, Lecture Award as well as many Belgium since 1987. other awards. He is a member of the A member of Engineering Ceramics Division. Van der Biest n ACerS’s Basic Science Division since 1973, Van der Biest is the author of more than 350 publications in international refereed journals, holds six patents, and has served as coeditor of six books. The role that electrical and magnetic fields can play in the processing of materials has been a continuous theme in his work. This has led to research on electrophoretic deposition and texturing of materials in a strong magnetic field. He also pioneered development of equipment for sintering under an electric field and contributed early-on to microwave sintering of powders.
