​Materials for Energy Harvesting

​Materials for Energy Harvesting

Mar 21, 2018

Future society will require materials and methodology for energy harvesting to enable smart systems and embedded automation. As the Internet of Things (IoT) becomes a reality, there will be need for a trillions of sensors to enable automated intelligence (AI) applications, for example to automate the care-taking operation for aging populations. Changing batteries for these trillion sensors is not feasible, as all of us experience that even recharging batteries of everyday mobile devices is quite challenging. It will be vital to develop energy harvesting materials and technologies that can dynamically harvest energy from surroundings to generate electrical power for sensors and devices. The March, 2018 issue of the MRS Bulletin, will feature articles on the forefront of developing cutting-edge energy harvesting to address these pressing issues.  

The talks in this webinar will expand upon the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees will be able to interact—in real time—with the webinar presenters.

​Caloric Effects in Ferroic Materials

​Caloric Effects in Ferroic Materials

Apr 18, 2018

The April, 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin on “Caloric effects in ferroic materials” introduces the reader to the state-of-the-art and ongoing developments in ferroic-caloric materials and their implementations into cooling devices. Ferroic cooling cycles are explained, along with the similarities and differences among magnetocaloric, electrocaloric, and elastocaloric cooling. The development of these materials for cooling has enabled new functionalities beyond refrigeration, including the use of magnetocaloric materials for hyperthermia therapy for cancer treatment.

The talks in this webinar will expand upon the MRS Bulletin issue, and attendees will be able to interact—in real time—with the webinar presenters.
