Join the Department of Materials Science & Engineering for light refreshments and research presentation by Dr. Paul Ohodnicki Jr of the National Energy Technology Laboratory.

Intermixing of two or more distinct phases at nanometer length scales can result in unique photonic, magnetic and electronic properties that are not otherwise attainable. Because such properties are highly sensitive to the detailed microstructural and chemical features at these length scales, nanostructured- and nanocomposite-based functional materials can be carefully engineered for optimal integration with a range of emerging device platforms.

This presentation will discuss inter-relationships between structure and properties in a number of archetype nanocomposite materials with a particular emphasis on systems currently of interest for (1) harsh environment sensing platform technologies, (2) thermal energy harvesting and conversion devices, and (3) high frequency magnetic components for emerging power electronics and power conversion applications.
