New Frontiers in Metals Processing

 

Metals continue to play critical roles in all aspects of technology, from micro- and nano-scale devices that enable our massively networked culture, to the buildings we live and work in. Despite this, research on metals processing has recently had a relatively low profile compared to research on other classes of materials, especially within universities. This is changing, in the past two decades we have seen an explosion in research on processing and properties of nanoscale materials and structures, tremendous advances in tools and methods for materials characterization at a range of length scales, and remarkable progress in computational design and modeling of the processing-structure-property relationships of materials. These new tools and methods are driving a renaissance in innovation in design and processing of metallic materials. This year’s Materials Processing Center - Materials Day Symposium will focus on new activities and emerging opportunities for research on metals and metal processing. Speakers will include research leaders from General Motors, Lockheed-Martin, Schlumberger, and Infinium, as well as faculty from MIT.
