MIT.nano December Seminar Series: Materials by Design: 3D Nano-Architected Meta-Materials

Tuesday, December 03, 2019 at 2:00pm to 3:00pm

Haus Room 36-428

Julia Greer, the Ruben and Donna Mettler Professor of Materials Science, Mechanics, and Medical Engineering, Caltech and the Director of the Kavli Nanoscience Institute at Caltech will present on the creation of extremely strong and simultaneously ultra lightweight materials that can be achieved by incorporating architecture into material design.

Greer's research at Caltech focuses on fabrication and synthesis of 3D nano-architected meta-materials using 3D lithography, nanofabrication, and additive manufacturing (AM) techniques. She and her team also investigate the materials' mechanical, biochemical, electrochemical, electromechanical, and thermal properties as a function of architecture, constituent materials, and microstructural detail.

In her talk, Greer will also describe examples where unusual mechanical properties of these nano-architected materials enable creating stimulus-responsive reconfigurable materials through electrochemistry.
