Physics Colloquium: Material Phase Diagram Chips and Applications

02/12/2016 - 3:30pm to 4:30pm
Speaker(s) / Presenter(s): 
Dr. Xiao-Dong Xiang (E-Cubed Energy)
Type of Event (for grouping events):

Twenty years ago, the Material Chip's invention allowed 10^3-10^4 materials with different compositions to be synthesized under the same conditions and characterized for physical properties in one experiment. Ten years ago, the development of the Materials Phase Diagram Chip allowed ternary phase diagrams at a constant synthesis temperature to be mapped in one experiment. Today, a complete phase diagram (a 3D contour with a 2D composition map and a temperature axis) can be mapped in one experiment with a single Materials Phase Diagram Chip, increasing the efficiency of phase diagram mapping by million-fold. The physics and implications of these chips will be discussed.

Refreshments will be served in CP 179 at 3:15 PM
