2019 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Advanced Magnetic Materials for Energy and Power Conversion Applications: Organized by Frank Johnson; Paul Ohodnicki; Alex Leary; Orlando Rios; Alessandra Hool

This symposium focuses on structure, property, processing, and performance interrelationships for emerging soft magnetic materials, permanent magnets, and magnetocaloric materials. Hybrid materials, such as materials that display both a magnetocaloric and elastocaloric effect. The scope includes manufacturing methods, characterization, and applications. We encourage topics that focus on the economic effects that magnetic materials have on manufacturing and adaptation of technologies and applications. The symposium will place a particular interest on emerging and established advanced manufacturing methods such as: 1. additive manufacturing, 2. top-down and bottom up bulk nano-manufacturing, 3. thermal-mechanical and thermal magnetic processing, and 4. energy dense processing such as RF, microwave, high pressure and high magnetic field processing. In a session on critical raw materials, we welcome contributions on issues surrounding critical raw materials use, optimization and/or substitution in energy applications.

2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Advanced Magnetic Materials for Energy and Power Conversion Applications: Organized by Orlando Rios; Frank Johnson; Paul Ohodnicki; Alex Leary; Ian Ashcroft; Tanjore Jayaraman

The accelerated expansion of global energy demands within the recent decade may be interpreted as an indicator of quality of life and the environment. Energy technologies hinge on efficient conversion and power densification. Engineering materials, some of which are subject to supply risks, price volatility, or concerns about long-term availability has been shown to have significant impacts on viability, reliability, and efficiency of power conversion. This symposium focuses on structure, property, processing, and performance interrelationships for emerging soft and hard magnetic materials systems as well as hybrid systems such as combined magnetocaloric and elastocaloric materials which are relevant for energy and power conversion applications. A special focus of this symposium will be targeted at advanced manufacturing approaches and the interface of engineered materials with device level performance and applications which rely on the fundamental magnetic interactions between structure and electromagnetic energy. We encourage topics that focus on the economically effects that critical materials have on manufacturing and adaptation of technologies and applications.
