Materials Design and Processing from Nano to Mesoscale

 

Date: June 13 and 14
Local Team: Ruipeng Li, Detlef Smilgies, Zhongwu Wang
Outside Organizers: Ou Chen (Brown University), Kevin Yager (Brookhaven Center for Functional Materials)

 

In nature, many materials form and manifest exceptional properties through assemblies of either organic or inorganic building blocks or both at all length scales. Through mimicking the nature-enabled materials growth, we are able to discover, design and fabricate novel materials by control and assembly of nanocrystals into periodic ordered supercrystals through fine tuning of particle size, shape, composition and modification of surface molecular decoration in lab. With CHESS as a 3rd generation source, our invited speakers and participants should consider CHESS strengths (e.g. faster detector, friendly collaborative environments, etc) together with your expertise and scientific vision, to help identify important science applications and major developments of unique technique which falls into one category of materials design and processing from nano to mesoscale.

Speakers: Matteo Cargnello (Stanford University), Ou Chen (Brown University), Joshua Choi (University of Virginia), Randy Headrick (University of Vermont), Robert Macfarlane (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Ron Pindak (Brookhaven National Laboratory, National Synchrotron Light Source II), Lee Richter (National Institution of Science and Technology), Yugang Sun (Temple University), Kevin Yager (Brookhaven National Laboratory)
