Many high-performance applications today necessitate the use of advanced materials that need to operate under coupled extreme environments where a material is subjected to more than one hostile environment that drives one or more material properties to near failure. This could include extreme local pressures, temperatures, fields, electrochemical potential gradients, and atomic displacement rates. Such coupled extreme environments pose among the highest demands on materials. The November 2022 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights new materials science methods and opportunities that will enable rapid progress in materials subjected to coupled extreme environments enabling them to work effectively under such conditions.

The talks in this webinar by authors from the issue will discuss some such materials systems under coupled extreme environments that are being explored using new methods and techniques, including challenges and opportunities.
