Frontiers of Optical Fibers


Co-Presented by MRS, the Materials Research Society and ACerS, the American Ceramic Society

Optical fibers, a major contributor to the multi-trillion dollar annual global economic impact of light, enable all modern means of communication and e-commerce, from streaming videos to online shopping. They are also used in medical endoscopes to peer into the body, and to bring high-power laser light to machining instruments central to the manufacturing of practically all modern electronics, automobiles, and planes.

However, some fibers are approaching limits in their ability to enable quickly developing technologies. The ever-present demand for enhanced performance has brought about a renaissance in fiber optics materials, their methods of fabrication, and the range of properties one can achieve.

This webinar will feature four talks from noted experts covering the past, present, and future of optical fibers and the materials from which they are made. Topics include material advances in fibers for telecommunications, specialty fibers for high energy laser systems, crystalline semiconductor fibers for novel in-fiber optoelectronics, and soft glass fibers for medical and sensing applications.

A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • Past, Present and Future of Telecommunications Fibers
    Peter Schultz, Peter Schultz Consulting
  • Frontiers of Optical Fibers
    John Ballato, Clemson University
  • Advances in semiconductor-core optical fibers - a materials processing adventure

Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Water Splitting


Water-splitting electrolysis using an electrocatalyst and a renewable power source is a promising energy conversion technology, especially when combined with energy stored in the form of hydrogen that has the benefit of also being environmentally friendly. The electrocatalyst can be rationally designed using nanomaterials spanning from transition-metal-based oxides and their derivatives, organic polymer nanomaterials, to inorganic-organic nanocomposites. The July 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin discusses materials innovations for realizing highly efficient and durable electrocatalysts for large-scale, cost-effective water splitting

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 follows each of the talks.

Talk Presentations:

  • Recent advances in rational design of efficient electrocatalyst for full water splitting across all pH conditions
    Gnanaprakasam Janani, Chonnam National University
    Talk begins at 7:40
       
  • Functionally graded nanocomposite materials for catalysis: From hard coatings to energy applications
    Emerson Coy, NanoBioMedical Centre, Adam Mickiewicz University
    Talk begins at 36:18
       
  • Interfacing metals and compounds for enhanced H₂ evolution from water splitting

The FUNdamentals of Atom Probe Tomography, the highest-sensitivity 3D analytical microscopic technique


This webinar provides a fundamental introduction to atom probe tomography (APT) and 3D nanoscale imaging mass spectrometry, with a focus on interpreting the resultant data. Further, we explore how APT can create more efficient energy-producing materials, and how the technique can be applied to new applications. An overview of applications in metals, semiconductors, and insulators, with examples of how atom probe tomography has been applied to solve real-world problems, is provided. This introduction to the technology and applications provides insight into how you can use APT in your research. Presented by CAMECA.

Data-Driven Ceramics and Glass Research


Co-presented by MRS and ACerS, the American Ceramic Society

Ceramics and glasses are at the forefront of advanced materials and will continue to bring new solutions to global challenges in energy, the environment, healthcare, and information/communication technology. To meet the accelerated pace of modern technology delivery, a more sophisticated approach to the design of advanced ceramics and glass materials must be developed to enable faster, cheaper, and better research and development of new materials compositions for future applications.

In this Webinar, we will discuss application of data science tools toward the design, understanding, and optimization of ceramic and glass materials.

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.
