Four years, and how quickly they have passed! As my term as director comes to an end, I regard those four years with pride and pleasure, and look forward to an exciting future under our new director, Professor Ray Vanderby. Working with dedicated and creative faculty and graduate students, we have taken a fantastic program and made it even better by adopting an improved, highly flexible curriculum and recruiting new faculty and students. In addition to established strengths in such areas as electronic/photonic materials, physical metallurgy, superconductivity, and ceramics, our portfolio has grown to include important new fields including polymers, MEMS, computational materials modeling, nanoscale materials science and biomaterials. There is a fantastic new world of materials applications emerging, and our vibrant program will be at its forefront, providing a world-class education for students as they work on cutting-edge materials research with world-leading faculty and facilities. In this issue of our newsletter, as always, you are treated to just a small sampling of the many exciting things going on in materials at UW-Madison. Come check us out!
