2020 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Advances and Discoveries in Non-equilibrium Driven Nanomaterials and Thin Films: Organized by Ritesh Sachan; Srinivasa Rao Singamaneni; Amit Pandey; Nuggehalli Ravindra

This conference plans to bring together scientists and engineers who focus on advances in synthesis and processing, atomic-scale characterization, structure-property correlations and modeling of novel non-equilibrium nanostructured materials and functional thin films. The scope of the conference includes zero dimensional (such as nanodots), one-dimensional (nanotubes and nanowires), two-dimensional (thin films) and three-dimensional (bulk) nanostructures, uniquely synthesized under extreme non-equilibrium conditions. Integration of such novel functional materials on practical substrates such as silicon and sapphire plays a critical role in creating multifunctional materials for next-generation systems and will be included as one of the important area of interest in the proposed symposium. The symposium highlights the science of the pulsed laser deposition and laser processing techniques, high energy ion irradiation and mechanical milling, role of interfaces and defects for fabricating such novel materials, thin film heterostructures. It also focus on the recent discoveries of pulsed laser annealing induced formation of non-equilibrium nanostructures (e.g. thin film oxides, Q-carbon, and doped nanodiamonds). We cover the synthesis engineering of large area coverage of various nanostructures and thin films, including pure and doped quenched C and c-BN structures, diamonds through non-equilibrium processing which stands to revolutionize quantum computing, superhard coatings, high-temperature and high-power electronics, and biomedical applications. Topics include: • Non-equilibrium processes for the synthesis of novel nanostructures. • Structure-properties correlations in complex oxide thin film heterostructures. • Atomic scale characterization of 0-D, 1-D, 2-D and 3-D nanostructures with novel functional properties. • Pulsed laser deposition and laser processing of novel materials and epitaxial thin film structures. • Role of defects and interfaces in properties manipulations in nanostructures. • Coatings and surface modifications for high-temperature and high-power electronics and biomedical applications. • Q-carbon, Q-BN, Q-BN, nano- and microdiamonds

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. 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.
