Cryogenic Electron Microscopy in Materials Science

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy in Materials Science

Feb 27, 2020

Cryogenic transmission electron microscopy is simply transmission electron microscopy conducted on specimens that are cooled in the microscope. The ability to probe chemistry, structure, and bonding on the atomic scale in the temperature range from a few Kelvin to room temperature in structural and functional materials in a variable temperature transmission electron microscope is an intriguing prospect that will open up many new areas of materials research. The articles in the December 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin explore the current capabilities, future developments, and opportunities for cryogenic electron microscopy in materials science.

This webinar complements the theme of the December 2019 issue of MRS Bulletin focusing on Cryogenic Electron Microscopy and will feature talks from experts in the field. A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Advanced Materials for Transient Electronic Devices

Advanced Materials for Transient Electronic Devices

Mar 3, 2020

Transient electronics, that can disappear, dissolve, or degrade in a controlled manner over time, has been attracting significant attention as a new and emerging technology. Transient electronics has unique applications, such as bioresorbable medical devices that can provide short-/medium-term diagnosis and treatment without removal surgery, environmentally friendly devices that can physically decompose within a specific timeframe and produce no waste, and self-destructing devices for non-recoverable IT and military security systems.

The February, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin highlights recent progress in transient electronics, focusing on materials aspects, including characterization, fabrication, and applications.  This webinar will feature three talks from well-known experts in the field. A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

New ceramic electrode materials for rechargeable lithium and sodium-ion batteries

New ceramic electrode materials for rechargeable lithium and sodium-ion batteries

Mar 4, 2020

The rechargeable lithium-ion battery (LIB is one of the key enablers of the modern digital age. With an unrivaled combination of portability and energy density, LIBs are ubiquitous in consumer electronics such as cell phones and laptops and are the leading energy storage candidate for the clean energy grid and the electrification of transportation. Nevertheless, the quest for LIB materials with higher energy density, improved safety and better sustainability continues remains a topic of great research interest.

This webinar will feature three talks from experts in the field covering various topics in state-of-the-art LIB research. A Q&A session will be held with each speaker at the conclusion of their talks.

Atomic Layer Deposition for Emerging Thin-film Materials and Applications

Atomic Layer Deposition for Emerging Thin-film Materials and Applications

Apr 23, 2020

This webinar is presented in conjunction with the forthcoming Journal of Materials Research Focus Issue on Atomic Layer Deposition for Emerging Thin-film Materials and Applications.  The webinar will present three presentations from authors from the Focus Issue, and each talk will be followed by an interactive Q&A session with those authors.

Atomic layer deposition (ALD) is a powerful and elegant technique for depositing atomically controllable thin film materials. ALD proceeds with a unique growth mechanism relying on alternately sequential surface-controlled self-saturation reactions, which enables the atomic-scale layer-by-layer deposition of the uniformly conformal films over virtually any topologies.
