MSE Seminar: “Metals and Alloys: A Critical Weapon in the Fight against Climate Change”

Today in the U.S., we deal with the severe, wide ranging effects of climate change from the West to East Coast in the form of heat waves, drought, wildfires, and flooding. To end these disasters, we need to drastically change the way we produce and use energy. For example, in 2020, over 72 % of […]

MSE Seminar: “Microstructural Design Principles for Achieving Stable Electrochemical Interfaces for Metal Anodes”

Lithium metal battery systems (LMBs) are being sought as an ultimate replacement to LIBs, potentially increasing the cell energy by over fifty percent due to the high capacity and low voltage of the metal anode. Analogous improvement in energy is possible with sodium metal batteries (NMBs) and with potassium metal batteries (KMBs), where existing ion […]

MEAM Seminar: “Kirigami: Programming Cutting and Folding from Microscale to Meter Scale”

Programmable shape-shifting materials can take different physical forms to achieve multifunctionality in a dynamic and controllable manner. By introducing holes and cuts in 2D sheets, we demonstrate dramatic color and shape change and super-conformability via collapsing or expanding of the hole arrays in the micro- and macroscales. When choosing the cuts and geometry correctly, we […]

MSE David P. Pope Distinguished Lecture: “Skin-Inspired Organic Electronics”

Skin is the body’s largest organ, and is responsible for the transduction of a vast amount of information. This conformable, stretchable, self-healable and biodegradable material simultaneously collects signals from external stimuli that translate into information such as pressure, pain, and temperature. The development of electronic materials, inspired by the complexity of this organ is a […]

MSE Seminar: “From Conducting Polymers to Conducting Molecular Search A Materials Science Pathway to the Perkin Medal”

The Perkin Medal that Dr. Frommer is receiving in September cites her lifetime scientific accomplishments in electronically conducting polymers and atomic force microscopy. The reality is these are but two points on a continuum of using chemistry to reveal the molecular underpinnings of material properties. This talk will take a path through studies to explore […]
