Hosts: Speakers:

Ultrafast electron-based methods have become a major new frontier in materials science due to the capability of following dynamics on time scales as short as femtoseconds with the high spatial resolution and sensitivity afforded by electrons. In particular, these allow for explorations of material properties far from equilibrium. Imaging on ultrafast time scales carries critical information on phase transitions, fundamental processes involved in light-harvesting, magnetic, and plasmonic dynamics, the coupling of electronic and nuclear degrees of freedom in materials and has revealed previously hidden, nonequilibrium metastable states of matter that have no equilibrium analog. 

The articles in the August issue of MRS Bulletin provide an exciting cross section of the novel research directions that have been enabled at this frontier. The talks in this webinar will cover some of these topics. An interactive Q&A session and discussions will follow the presentations.
