EMA 2015 Summary Report
Published on January 27th, 2015 | By: April Gocha, PhD
EMA 2015 was designed for scientists, engineers, students, researchers and manufacturers with an interest in materials for electronics, energy and sensor applications. The programming included a mix of industrial, university and federal lab participants, discussing theoretical, experimental, applied, and unifying approaches.
The technical program included plenary talks, invited lectures, contributed papers and poster presentations, and open discussions, as well as networking opportunities to facilitate future collaborations, scientific, and technical advances. Symposia emphasized ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, and dielectrics; thermoelectrics; superconductors; photovoltaics and LED’s; energy generation and storage systems; human energy generation and use; NEMS/MEMS; graded materials; and data storage applications. Other themes included thin film and bulk materials processing; device fabrication; green processing and sustainable materials; novel characterization methods; nanoscale electronics and mechanics; and interfacial effects and engineering.
A separate student-run symposium also featured graduate and undergraduate student research, sponsored by ACerS President’s Council of Student Advisors, providing development and networking opportunities for the next generation of scientists.
