Materials are an important contributor to technological progress, and yet the process of materials discovery and development has historically been inefficient. In general, the current innovation workflow is human-centered, where researchers design, conduct, analyze and interpret results obtained through experiments, simulations or literature review. Such results are often high-dimensional, large in number and heterogeneous in nature, which hinders a researcher’s ability to draw insight from this data manually.
This webinar will explore the synthesis of machine learning with materials research, highlighting a broad spectrum of topics in which machine learning, artificial intelligence, or statistics play a significant role in addressing problems in experimental and theoretical materials science. It will also spur discussion on the fundamental connection between machine learning and material science, and its future application and impact.
Used by leading institutions and organizations around the world, Atom Probe Tomography has revolutionized materials research. This webinar will provide an introduction to APT and explore its relevance and effectiveness to your research.
Atom Probe Tomography (APT) is a technique used to analyze the composition of solid materials and thin films by evaporating individual ions from the surface of the material with a voltage or laser pulse. By combining ToF mass spectrometry with 3D position information, a 3D model of the specimen can be created, providing near-atomic spatial resolution.
For photonic systems, breaking reciprocity using nonreciprocal materials is a fundamental challenge and opportunity, which is both of scientific interest and of technical importance. It allows for the development of key photonic components, such as optical isolators and circulators-on-a-chip and also provides revolutionary ways to transport and process data in photonic systems. In the June, 2018 issue of MRS Bulletin, several representative research directions toward realizing integrated nonreciprocal photonic materials and devices are summarized.
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.
