Piezotronics and piezophototronics are two newly coined fields for third-generation semiconductors that actively couple the strain-induced polarization potential with the mobile charge carrier transport behavior. The fundamental effects are likely to impact the design and fabrication of electronic and photonic devices for mechanosensation, human-machine interfacing, robotics, artificial intelligence, sensors, LEDs, solar cells, and catalysis. The December, 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights the progress made in these two fields.

This webinar will expand on the Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.
