Three-Dimensional Architected Materials and Structures

Date: October 31, 2019

Time: 12:00PM - 01:30PM

You must be registered to participate!

The principles of optimally engineering structures, integrating materials and architectural features at multiple length scales, are now being applied to the design and manufacture of three dimensional architected materials with properties determined a priori and attained through multiscale approaches. These materials embody the characteristics of both the constituent material, which brings the effects of its microstructure and ensuing properties at the relevant characteristic length scales, as well as the structure, which is driven by the architected design. The new 3D architected hierarchical materials offer breakthrough advances in many applications ranging from ultra-lightweight and damage-tolerant structural materials to safe and efficient energy storage, biomedical, biochemical and nanophotonic devices as well as micromechanical sensors and actuators.

This webinar expanded upon and complemented the October 2019 MRS Bulletin issue, and an interactive Q&A session with the speakers was held at the conclusion of the presentations.
