IC Materials For Extreme Conditions

Semiconductor Engineering | March 18, 2021

The number of materials being researched for chips used in extreme environments, such as landing on the planet Venus, is growing, according to new research, including research presented at the 2020 Virtual MRS Spring/Fall Meeting.

Solid-state batteries could be made more cleanly by scaling-up flash sintering

Science Daily | March 9, 2021

In the paper, 'Promoting microstructural homogeneity during flash sintering of ceramics through thermal management' published as part of a special issue of the MRS Bulletin, Gareth Jones and Dr. Claire Dancer from WMG, University of Warwick worked with collaborators from the University of Trento, Wuhan University of Technology, Normandie Université, and Lucideon Ltd to review the origins of microstructural variations in different regions of ceramic materials undergoing flash sintering.

MRS Fall Meeting Report

Wiley Analytical Science | February 28, 2021

Feeling Zoom-weary, fed up with pandemic limitations, and tough to get motivated for a virtual conference, I was wondering if the annual fall 2020 MRS meeting was really worth attending this year. However, partly because I did want to present my work and partly out of curiosity, I did decide to register and attend the meeting. And I am so glad I did because the 2020 MRS Fall Annual meeting – into which the spring meeting was merged – was both a big success and worthwhile.
