JOM: Volume 48, Number 9--September 1996

The role of sensors in industry is gaining more significance, especially in the area of the intelligent processing of materials. This issue of JOM reviews some of the new sensor technologies and their application in intelligent manufacturing. In keeping with this theme, the cover shows pulsed laser deposition at Wright Laboratory at the Materials Directorate of Wright-Patterson Air Force Base. Several of the authors in this issue work at that site.
