Hosted annually by the MIT Materials Processing Center, MIT Materials Day features emerging research and applications in materials engineering and science for products and processes across the industrial spectrum. The theme for this year’s symposium is “Quantum Materials”. This year’s speakers will include leading researchers from the Science & Technology Center for Integrated Quantum Materials, an NSF-sponsored research center based at Harvard University with co-investigators at MIT, Howard University and the Museum of Science. Quantum materials include atomic layers, such as graphene, topological insulators, and nitrogen vacancy diamond. Topics will cover the synthesis of these novel materials, their characterization, and their use in quantum devices. Materials Day activities include conference speakers from within and outside the Institute and a student poster session showcasing results from the diverse materials research communities in MIT's Schools of Science and Engineering.
