DOD cuts force change in plenary speakers at Electronic Materials and Applications meeting this week

By Eileen De Guire / January 22, 2013

Susan Trolier-McKinstry to deliver Friday’s EMA plenary after AFOSR speaker cancels. Last week I wrote about a memo sent by the deputy secretary of DOD to the entire agency encouraging proactive spending cuts, including cutbacks on travel, conferences, and training. It did not take long for DOD brass to embrace the recommendations, and we just…

Group shows hysteretic behavior of ferroelectric materials changes at nanoscale

By / May 20, 2010

A collaborative group of researchers from Oak Ridge National Lab, Penn State, the Univ. of Sheffield (U.K.) and EPFL (Switzerland) have made a discovery that overturns some 100-year-old assumptions about the behavior of polycrystalline and other ferroelectric materials. In brief, the nonlinear materials responses and associated enhanced electromechanical properties that occur at the microlevel stop…
