Women continue to be underrepresented in the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) professions. In 2013, Women comprised over 47% of the U.S. workforce, including 51% of management and professional employees, but only 45% of scientists, 22% of technology workers, 10% of engineers and 25% of math professions. In this presentation, Kathleen Buse of Case Western Reserve University reviewed herr research that focuses on the complex factors related to women’s persistence in the STEM professions. She described these individual, relational, cultural and organizational factors in detail, and highlighted the factors that differ between men and women—spoiler alert: it’s not family and children. The presentation concluded with recommendations for changing undergraduate education, developing specific skills in STEM women and for changes within organizations.

An Introduction to Materials Simulations

Apr 21, 2014 8:30am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 5:00pm

Identification: WW

The aim of the tutorial is to provide a foundation for sectors in the materials community with an interest in nucleating a computational effort in the spirit of materials genomics. To this end, a program encompassing fundamentals around computation tools, as well as discussion on experimental design and database construction, is necessary to adapt to the comprehensive research effort posed by current materials modeling and predictive trends.

In this new scheme, predictive modeling will further populate the main scene in materials science. A habitual practice in adjacent fields such as theoretical physics, the mathematical prediction of new materials (along with their functionalities) will bear a profound impact in materials research, the extent of which is still uncertain. Adequate deployment of computational resources requires a foundational discussion aiming at predictive modeling, where perturbation potentials (key to, among others, structure-property relations) are introduced. A review of available computational resources will be provided.


Phase-Change Materials - From Basic Properties to Applications

Apr 21, 2014 8:45am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 2:45pm

Identification: HH

Part I reviews the unique physical properties of phase-change material and demonstrates how materials engineering can be used for optimization in view of different applications. It will focus on the materials optimization for various solid-state memory applications such as storage-class memory or DRAM replacement. A short introduction to neuromorphic computing will be given.

Part II will provide coverage of theoretical simulations on the structural and functional properties of phase-change materials. Insight gained from atomistic simulations on the chemical bonding, on the origin of the optical and electronic contrast between the amorphous and crystalline phases and on the crystallization dynamics, exploited in memory devices, will be reviewed. Basics of glass formation and crystallization kinetics will be briefly discussed. The emphasis will be placed mostly, but not exclusively, on molecular dynamics simulations-based on density functional theory.

Part III provides an introduction to reconfigurable electronics and cognitive applications-biology-inspired/neuromorphic devices. Neuromorphic engineering is a highly cross-disciplinary emerging field aiming at the design of artificial neural systems. The effort of developing cognitive systems on top of a neuromorphic computing architecture takes inspiration from biology, physics, mathematics, computer science and engineering. A state-of-the-art technology review will be given.

Electronic-Mechanical Coupling in Graphene from in situ Nanoindentation Experiments and Multiscale Atomistic Simulations

Apr 21, 2014 10:30am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 11:00am

Identification: OO1.01

Graphene’s high electron mobility, scalability and excellent thermal conductivity make it a promising semiconductor candidate for post-CMOS electronic devices. We performed in situ nanoindentation to induce uniaxial tensile strain in suspended graphene devices and simultaneously measured electronic transport properties. We found Young’s modulus to be ∼335 N/m, consistent with previous reports and our atomistic simulation results. Electrical measurements indicate the gauge factor of ∼1.9, comparable to the 2.4 predicted by simulations. Our transport measurements reveal that a moderate uniaxial strain is not capable of opening a band gap in graphene and does not affect its carrier mobility. This result matches our first principle-based MD simulations, as well as other theoretical predictions. The implications are that unlike for many other CMOS devices, mechanical strain, which can be easily controlled through device fabrication, is not an effective means to alter electronic transport properties in graphene.


Evolution of Nanobubbles in Graphene Liquid Cells: An TEM Study

Apr 21, 2014 11:15am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 11:30am

Identification: OO1.03

Water, which is most abundant in Earth's surface and is very closely related to all forms of living organisms, has a simple molecular structure but exhibits very unique physical and chemical properties. Even though tremendous effort has been paid to understand this core substance of nature, there amazingly still lefts much room for scientist to explore its novel behaviors. Especially, as the scale goes down to nano-regime, water shows extraordinary properties that are not observable in bulk state. One of such interesting features is the formation of nanoscale bubbles showing unusual long-term stability.

Nanobubbles can be spontaneously formed in water on hydrophobic surface or by decompression of gas-saturated liquid. In addition, the nanobubbles can be generated during electrochemical reaction at normal hydrogen electrode (NHE), which possibly distorts the standard reduction potential at NHE as the surface nanobubble screens the reaction with electrolyte solution. However, the real-time evolution of these nanobubbles has been hardly studied owing to the lack of proper imaging tools in liquid phase at nanoscale. Here we demonstrate, for the first time, that the behaviors of nanobubbles can be visualized by in-situ transmission electron microscope (TEM), utilizing graphene as liquid cell membrane.

The results indicate that there is a critical radius that determines the long-term stability of nanobubbles. In addition, we find two different pathways of nanobubble growth. The distinctively small and large nanobubbles show Ostwald ripening like process that a small bubble disappears near the surface of a growing larger bubble. In this case, its boundary is not destroyed until the merging is completed. It seems that the gas diffusion from one bubble to another occurs at invisible time scale.

On the other hand, two similar-sized nanobubbles show a coalescing process, followed by reshaping into dumbbell-like and spherical morphology. It is interesting that such Ostwald ripening-like behaviour can be observed in gaseous particles. We also observed that a small nanoparticle nucleates at the inter-bubble boundary area and rapidly grow into larger nanoparticles, which is possibly due to higher diffusion rate induced by dynamic equilibrium and high flux rate on nanobubble interface.

Furthermore, we observed that the nanoparticles can be included inside the nanobubble cavity to minimize hydration energy and grow into larger nanoparticles. The nanoparticles are often included inside drifting nanobubbles. We suppose that it is one of the catalysing or cleaning pathways common in nature. Our finding is expected to provide a deeper insight to understand unusual chemical, biological and environmental phenomena where nanoscale gas-state is involved.


Strain Superlattices and Macroscale Suspension of Graphene Induced by Corrugated Substrates

Apr 21, 2014 11:30am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 11:45am

Identification: OO1.04

Growing graphene over large areas and the improvement of transfer techniques increase the need to control the shape and geometry of graphene once deposited onto the destination substrate. After transfer (1), graphene membranes always display unwanted ripples that limit its electrical, thermal and mechanical properties (2).Indeed, these ripples in graphene-based transistor can between other alter the electrical conductivity (2).

Nevertheless, it offers interesting ways to locally tune strain in graphene, which strongly influences its electronic, magnetic and vibrational properties (3,4,5). Local bending of graphene is a mean to induce an electrical gap or create high pseudo-magnetic fields (3), so that a locally tailor strain in graphene for controlled design of devices based on "stresstronics".

Before reaching such a stage of control, it appears necessary to understand the interaction process of polycrystalline graphene membranes onto the formation of graphene ripples during transfer. For that purpose, we investigate by spatially resolved Raman spectroscopy, the formation process of strain and ripples in CVD graphene layers, which are deposited onto a corrugated substrate formed by an array of SiO2 nano-pillars with varying spacing and apex radius. This ordered corrugated substrate defines strain domains of parallel ripples, which can reach different regimes by varying the pitch of the array and sharpness of the pillars.

We explore both limits of low-density arrays where graphene exhibits ripples domains and of very dense arrays for which no ripples are formed, and so the graphene stays fully suspended over a dense nano-pillars array. Spatially resolved Raman spectroscopy reveals uniaxial strain domains in the transferred graphene, which are induced and controlled by the array. For the tightest arrays, this technique shows the possibility to obtain macroscopically suspended graphene membranes with minimal interaction with the substrate. It also offer perspectives for electron transport and nano mechanical applications.

Strain Engineering in Monolayer Materials Using Patterned Adatom Adsorption

Apr 21, 2014 11:45am ‐ Apr 21, 2014 12:00pm

Identification: OO1.05

Strain engineering has been widely used to modify physical properties of materials to achieve better device performance. Recently, advances in the isolation and fabrication of monolayer materials have led to a wealth of interest in the engineering of strain in these monolayer materials for applications.

Monolayer materials exhibit mechanical strengths that enable the use of strains much larger than can be achieved in bulk materials. However, the unusual mechanical properties of monolayers require different approaches than for bulk materials. Here, we utilize REBO-based interatomic potentials to explore the potential for the engineering of strain in monolayer materials in the context of graphene using lithographically or otherwise patterned adatom adsorption.

We discover that the resulting monolayer strain is a complex competition between the in-plane elasticity and out-of-plane relaxation deformations. The strain outside the adatom adsorption region vanishes due to out-of-plane relaxation deformations. Under some circumstances, an annular adsorption pattern generates large strains of approximately 2% inside the adsorption region, and here the elastic plane strain model can be used to provide some qualitative guidance. We find that the strains generated are up to 5.8% of the lattice constant change in the adsorbed region. In addition, an elliptical adsorption pattern proves to have the potential to produce uniaxial strains of as large as 4%. Our results elucidate a potential method for strain control at the nanoscale in monolayer devices.


Safety First - Enhancing Safety in Academic Research Laboratories

Apr 21, 2014 12:30pm ‐ Apr 21, 2014 5:00pm

Identification: FFF

The most compelling reason for ensuring that proper safety practices are followed in academic laboratory settings is, of course, that the health and well-being of the researchers is of paramount importance. As such, it is in the best interests of Principal Investigators (PIs), health and safety personnel and school administrators to provide a safe laboratory environment and the researchers themselves to know and follow proper safety protocols to minimize the potential for laboratory accidents leading to injury or even death.

Other incentives for awareness and enforcement of safe lab practices include increasing government oversight from OSHA and the U.S. Chemical Safety and Hazard Investigation Board following a series of laboratory accidents resulting in serious injuries and/or deaths at universities across the U.S. In addition, the companies, government laboratories and universities that will hire students after graduation will require them to follow strict safety protocols. Knowing and having used correct safety protocols throughout their academic laboratory experiences enhances the students' marketability to these employers. A relatively high percentage of reportable safety infractions involve new hires in their first few years working in an industrial setting because these protocols are not ingrained in their minds and laboratory habits during their years in school.

In 2012, Dow Chemical Company embarked on a pilot-scale initiative to enhance the safety culture in materials science and engineering, chemistry and chemical engineering departments at three universities with which they have strategic alliances. This intense program involved visits by Dow personnel to the universities and students, visits by faculty and staff from the universities to Dow for a safety workshop, as well as a series of teleconferences on building an effective safety culture. While each department began at a different safe practices baseline, each came away with concrete steps to take to improve their safety culture. Dow is using feedback from each school to develop safety modules and resources, including short videos, that will be rolled out initially to all the schools in their strategic alliance network and, eventually, nationwide.

This tutorial will be valuable to students and faculty involved in laboratory research at academic institutions of any size. It will provide an interactive forum for discussing the positive effect of the Dow initiative at the three universities (Pennsylvania State University, University of Minnesota and University of California, Santa Barbara) on the safety cultures at these schools.

Tutorial participants will be provided with resources and strategies to accomplish an enhanced safety culture at their own institutions and learn ways to effectively initiate or enhance an effective safety culture by communicating, incentivizing and positively enforcing safety initiatives.
