Data-Driven Ceramics and Glass Research

Data-Driven Ceramics and Glass Research

Jul 15, 2020

Co-presented with ACerS, the American Ceramic Society

Ceramics and glasses are at the forefront of advanced materials and will continue to bring new solutions to global challenges in energy, the environment, healthcare, and information/communication technology. To meet the accelerated pace of modern technology delivery, a more sophisticated approach to the design of advanced ceramics and glass materials must be developed to enable faster, cheaper, and better research and development of new materials compositions for future applications. 

In this Webinar, we will discuss application of data science tools toward the design, understanding, and optimization of ceramic and glass materials.

The FUNdamentals of Atom Probe Tomography, the highest-sensitivity 3D analytical microscopic technique

The FUNdamentals of Atom Probe Tomography, the highest-sensitivity 3D analytical microscopic technique

Jul 21, 2020

This webinar will give a fundamental introduction to atom probe tomography (APT) and 3D nanoscale imaging mass spectrometry, with a focus on interpreting the resultant data. Further, we’ll explore how APT can create more efficient energy-producing materials, and how the technique can be applied to new applications. An overview of applications in metals, semiconductors, and insulators, with examples of how atom probe tomography has been applied to solve real-world problems, will be provided. This introduction to the technology and applications will give insight into how you can use APT in your research.  Presented by CAMECA

Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Water Splitting

Nanomaterials for Electrochemical Water Splitting

Jul 22, 2020

Water-splitting electrolysis using an electrocatalyst and a renewable power source is a promising energy conversion technology, especially when combined with energy stored in the form of hydrogen that has the benefit of also being environmentally friendly. The electrocatalyst can be rationally designed using nanomaterials spanning from transition-metal-based oxides and their derivatives, organic polymer nanomaterials, to inorganic-organic nanocomposites. The July 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin discusses materials innovations for realizing highly efficient and durable electrocatalysts for large-scale, cost-effective water splitting

This webinar will expand upon and complement the articles in this MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session will follow each of the talks.

Frontiers of Optical Fibers

Frontiers of Optical Fibers

Aug 5, 2020

Co-presented with ACerS, the American Ceramic Society

Optical fibers, a major contributor to the multi-trillion dollar annual global economic impact of light, enable all modern means of communication and e-commerce, from streaming videos to online shopping. They are also used in medical endoscopes to peer into the body, and to bring high-power laser light to machining instruments central to the manufacturing of practically all modern electronics, automobiles, and planes.

However, some fibers are approaching limits in their ability to enable quickly developing technologies. The ever-present demand for enhanced performance has brought about a renaissance in fiber optics materials, their methods of fabrication, and the range of properties one can achieve.

This webinar will feature four talks from noted experts covering the past, present, and future of optical fibers and the materials from which they are made. Topics include material advances in fibers for telecommunications, specialty fibers for high energy laser systems, crystalline semiconductor fibers for novel in-fiber optoelectronics, and soft glass fibers for medical and sensing applications.

A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Synthetic Biology: Advances and Critical Needs from a Biomaterials Viewpoint

Synthetic Biology: Advances and Critical Needs from a Biomaterials Viewpoint

Aug 19, 2020

Co-presented with SFB, the Society for Biomaterials

Synthetic biology has already revolutionized numerous fields through the creation of synthetic structures that mimic almost every aspect of nature. In particular, at the intersection of synthetic biology and biomaterials, researchers have been developing innovative approaches to improve sustainable manufacturing, detection, disease prevention, and therapy. This webinar will highlight such advances by four distinguished scientists developing synthetic platelets for hemorrhage control, transfusion medicine and wound healing applications as well as harnessing the synthetic potential of microbes to orchestrate the assembly of complex materials for textiles, bioremediation, therapeutic probiotics, and so much more! Come join this unique webinar at the intersection of synthetic biology and biomaterials science and see what the future of synthetic biology holds for improving medicine and manufacturing.

The webinar will feature four talks from leaders in the field, and an interactive Q&A session will be held with each speaker.

Organic Semiconductors for Brain-Inspired Computing

Organic Semiconductors for Brain-Inspired Computing

Aug 26, 2020

A growing realization that the next generation of neuromorphic computing must more effectively emulate, not just stimulate, neural functions has led to a surge in research activity to discover and revisit materials systems that efficiently implement various neural functions. The August, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin will consider multiple avenues by which neural processes have been pursued in the past decades, and future opportunities and challenges that lie ahead for the field of organic neuromorphic devices.

This webinar will expand upon and complement the articles in this MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. An interactive Q&A session will follow each of the talks.
