Cutting edge technology is being driven by advancements in materials. Understanding how solids have the properties they do depends heavily on the underlying structure. In amorphous materials such as glass, the lack of long range ordering makes it extremely difficult to understand how atoms like to arrange themselves. This talk will explore a new breed of materials called metallic glass, what makes them special, their current applications in modern technology (include iPhones) and what we know about how they work.
The talk is from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. Snacks will be provided at 12:00 pm. Make sure to follow the Graduate Seminar Series on Facebook.
