MEAM Seminar: “‘Tiny-but-tough’ GaN- and Graphene-based Nanoelectronics for Extreme Harsh Environments”

January 25 at 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Gallium nitride (GaN) nanoelectronics have operated at temperatures as high as 1000°C making it a viable platform for robust space-grade (“tiny-but-tough”) electronics and nano-satellites. Even with these major technological breakthroughs, we have just begun the “GaN revolution.” New communities are adopting this nanoelectronic platform for a multitude of emerging device applications including the following: sensing, […]

MEAM PhD Thesis Defense: “Accelerated Design of Architected Materials with Geometric Heterogeneity for Enhanced Failure Characteristics”

January 25 at 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Nature provides countless examples of the use of material heterogeneity to enhance the failure properties of materials. Many biological materials, such as bone, marine shells, and fish scales, are extremely resilient to fracture and failure. These often consist of regions that are highly mineralized and stiff and regions of biopolymers that are extremely soft. In […]
