Halide Perovskite Opto- and Nanoelectronic Materials and Devices


The application of halide perovskites for photovoltaic solar cells and light-emitting diodes has rapidly expanded recently and is now being extended into nanoelectronics, including in thermoelectric, memory, and artificial synapse applications. Halide perovskites provide an excellent platform for optoelectronics and nanoelectronics with interesting optical, electrical, and magnetic properties. The articles in the June, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin overview halogen perovskites and devices for optoelectronic and nanoelectronics applications.

This webinar expanded upon and complemented the articles in this MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session followed each of the talks.

Emergent Quantum Materials


The properties of quantum materials are principally defined by quantum mechanical effects at macroscopic length scales. These materials exhibit phenomena and functionalities not expected or predicted from classical physics. While the field of quantum materials has been a topical area of modern materials science for decades, today it is at the center stage of technologies ranging from electronics, photonics, energy, defense, and sensing to environmental and biomedical applications, and in particular, quantum information science and technology. The May issue of MRS Bulletin presented important developments in emergent quantum materials at the intersection of materials science and condensed-matter physics.

This webinar expanded upon and complemented the articles in this MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session will follow each of the talks.

Atomic Layer Deposition for Emerging Thin-film Materials and Applications


This webinar was presented in conjunction with the Journal of Materials Research Focus Issue on Atomic Layer Deposition for Emerging Thin-film Materials and Applications. The webinar featured three presentations from authors from the Focus Issue, and each talk was followed by an interactive Q&A session with those authors.

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a powerful and elegant technique for depositing atomically controllable thin film materials. ALD proceeds with a unique growth mechanism relying on alternately sequential surface-controlled self-saturation reactions, which enables the atomic-scale layer-by-layer deposition of the uniformly conformal films over virtually any topologies.

Since the 2000s, ALD has greatly widened its variety of applications from semiconductors to catalysis, biomedicine, gas sensing, anti-corrosion coating, clean-energy technologies (batteries, fuel cells, supercapacitors, solar cells, etc.), and nano- and micro-electromechanical systems (N/MEMS). The characteristic merits of ALD include not only its superior controllability over film thickness, composition, and crystallinity, but also its unique capability for constructing conformal thin-film coatings on complex structures. These merits underlie the fast expansion of ALD into new areas over the past decades, such as metal-organic frameworks, two-dimensional layered materials, single-atom catalysis, solid-state batteries, and so forth.

Talk Presentations:

  • Encapsulation of Organic and Nanocrystal LEDs via Atomic Layer Deposition
    Rong Chen, Huazhong University of Science and Technology
  • Atomic layer–deposited nanostructures and their applications in energy storage and sensing
    Yongfeng Mei, Fudan University
  • Nanoscale Al2O3 coating to stabilize selenium cathode for sodium–selenium batteries

Nanoscale Tomography Using X-rays and Electrons


Three-dimensional (3D) tomographic imaging, using x-rays or electrons, of the structural, chemical, and physical properties of a material provides key knowledge that links the structure of a material to its processing, which is central to studies across a broad spectrum of materials. For decades, tomography using x-rays or electrons has proven to be an essential 3D characterization tool. In recent years, advances in technology have enabled new imaging capabilities at the nanometer or atomic scale for 3D reconstruction.

The April 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin discusses developments, techniques, and future directions for 3D tomographic imaging. This webinar expanded upon and complemented the MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session followed each of the talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • High-dimensional and high-resolution x-ray tomography for energy materials science
    Yijin Liu, Stanford University
  • Electron Tomography for Functional Nanomaterials
    Robert Hovden, University of Michigan
  • Atomic Electron Tomography: Adding New Dimensions to Pinpoint Single Atoms in Materials

Can Materials Science Counter the COVID-19 Pandemic? A discussion with materials researchers at the frontlines of battling the coronavirus


Co-presented with SFB, the Society for Biomaterials

The spread of COVID-19 throughout the globe highlights the need for improved solutions in the fight against infectious diseases. As always, materials research plays an immense role in finding these solutions. Prevention and protection, diagnostics, therapeutics and vaccines – materials science plays a key role in each of these key components.

In this live 90-minute panel discussion, we spoke with five researchers on the frontlines of this critical battle, applying biomaterials, nanotechnology, and other tools of materials research to accelerate a solution.

This webinar brought an overwhelming amount of questions, and we are continuing the conversation on LinkedIn @COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and Materials Science. We encourage you to join the group as we resume the discussion with materials researchers at the forefront of this battle.

Metasurfaces for Flat Optics


Conventional optical components including lenses based on refraction suffer from functional degradation as the device size decreases as well as other limitations. Metasurfaces consisting of subwavelength optical antenna arrays have emerged as planar optical devices that can overcome many of the limitations of conventional lenses. Such metasurfaces enable many promising applications in lenses, holograms, and optical cloaks. These metasurfaces have been developed for their specific functionalities by exploiting new materials and design algorithms. Various optical properties such as amplitude, phase, and even frequency can be tuned by adjusting the physical shape of individual antennas and their arrangement.

The articles in the March issue of MRS Bulletin overview recent progress in and the state-of-the-art of metasurfaces and their novel applications in optics and photonics.

This webinar featured three talks from experts in the field. A Q&A session was held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • Metasurface optics for imaging applications
    Byoungho Lee, Seoul National University
  • Machine learning for nanophotonics
    Michael Mrejen, Tel Aviv University
  • Data driven methods for electromagnetics design
    Jonathan Fan, Stanford University
