Dr. Amit Misra of Los Alamos National Laboratory will present the Materials Engineering Department seminar. Dr. Misra is the director of a U.S. Department of Energy, Office of Basic Energy Sciences funded Energy Frontier Research Center titled Center for Materials at Irradiation and Mechanical Extremes at the lab. His talk is "There's Plenty of Room at Material Interfaces." This talk will highlight manipulation of the bi-material interface structure and chemistry at the atomic-level to control defect phenomena at interfaces to develop novel nano-composite materials with controlled functionality for the next generation applications. Noon in Jones Hall 106.
