    With consumers constantly exposed to brands, it is very important for businesses to ensure their brand stand out in the marketplace. Building brand loyalty creates a competitive advantage through increased customer ...
  • Schrock, Benjamin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2022-04)
    This work focuses on determining the diffusion coefficient of potassium in silica at high temperatures. Understanding this diffusion helps predict the final profile of optical fiber. This work also investigates several ...
  • McGarrity, Kade A. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2022-05)
    Silicon nitride (Si3N4) and its related materials have been the subjects of research for 70 years and have garnered interest for applications ranging from cutting tools and bearings to turbine blades and spinal implants. ...
  • Mahany, Timothy R. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2022-04)
    Additive manufacturing (AM) allows for the rapid production of a desired shape, and enables the ability to modify the design before it is produced again. This can be a valuable tool in industry as a method for manufacturing ...
  • Flint, Madeleine N. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2022-02)
    Layered δ-MnO2 (birnessite) exhibits a unique response to the reduction of Mn4+ to Mn3+, where the reduced Mn3+ Jahn-Teller distorted octahedron creates a 'surface Frenkel defect.' The reduced Mn3+O6 octahedron migrates ...
  • Fekety, Curtis (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2022-02)
    A phenomenon was observed during work producing "ultra-thin glass" (<150μ thickness) where samples folded onto themselves displayed strong adhesion and served as a simple method to analyze contaminants in the process and ...
  • Raposas, Christine (2022-05-07)
    I focused my honors thesis research on three types of ceramic glazes, lichen, lava, and gloop. These became especially interesting to me after I took a glaze class a few years ago. I decided to take the glaze class because ...
  • Quintas, Jocelyn (2022-05)
    Sugar, like silicates, can be heated to molten temperatures and become glass once cooled. Confectioneries use a mixture of several sugars to create hard candies, and a sugar glass is another name for this. Sugar glass, ...
  • Poklop, Natalie (2022-05-06)
    Through the past four years, ceramics has gone from a practice to ease my mind to a practice that activates it. I have begun to question what motivations drive me to do ceramics and what need it fulfills in my life. I have ...
  • Peterson, Sabastian (2022-05-05)
    Upon starting Gene Wolfe’s The Shadow of the Torturer, the reader will be immersed in what seems like a distinctly patriarchal story. The beginning of the series concerns a member of a violent all male organization pining ...
  • Morling, Karina (2022-04-26)
    University of Washington’s Associate Women’s Head Soccer Coach, Amy Griffin, has created a list of 268 athletes that have been diagnosed with cancer after playing on an artificial turf field at some point in their athletic ...
  • Stevens, Mackenzie N. (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2021-09)
    This study uses the direct observation of the heating of cylindrical powder compacts via hot-stage microscope (HSM), with heating rates from 1.0 to 60 K/min, to establish sintering ranges and activation energies of three ...
  • Lee, Hyojin (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2021-12)
    The hardness of alkaline earth aluminosilicate glasses was evaluated focusing on the alumina level and atomic packing density of the system. To identify the compositional matrices, a comprehensive investigation was conducted ...
  • Fordham, Ryan (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2021-08)
    Additive manufacturing enables freedom of design and rapid prototyping which are valuable assets in every application and industry. Cerium oxide (ceria) is well-known for applications in various fields, including abrasives, ...
  • Chang, Yiwen (New York State College of Ceramics at Alfred University. Inamori School of Engineering., 2021-10)
    Refractory high entropy alloys (RHEAs) are newly designed alloys with multi-principal-refractory elements in the system to maintain a solid solution. In this research, 5 novel attempts at a single body centered cubic (BCC) ...
  • Torthe, Talulla (2022-05)
    Some films have a special allure, a spark that evokes a deep feeling of pleasure in the viewer. It is my objective, through The ABCs of Cinematic Beauty, to put into writing what gives some films that spark—what make these ...
