Nano Series  Webinar -  May 4, 2017


Join us for a webinar to learn about one of the cutting-edge applications of nanoscientific research:


 Join us for a series of lectures featuring materials sciences expert Prof. Rigoberto Advincula of Case Western Reserve University! Our new series with Prof. Advincula aims to a beginner's friendly first foray into a new materials science field each month. By exploring the basics and fundamental science of each featured field, we hope to expand your appreciation for the research and engineering helping us craft the world of tomorrow by improving the one we live in today.

Our first entry in this brand new series is focused on ceramics. Known for their durability, strength, brittleness, electrical/thermal resistance, and chemical stability, these inorganic and non-metallic materials have given rise to considerable advances in various industries such as aerospace, automotive, electronics, and medicine.

Join us as Prof. Advincula surveys the field of ceramics research and development and gives us a tour on how we work with ceramics today, characterize their properties, and usher in new ceramics-based technologies via the latest techniques in chemical, electrical, materials, and mechanical engineering.

Presented by Prof. Rigoberto Advincula
Macromolecular Science & Engineering, Case Western Reserve University
