Researchers from Texas A&M University report significant advances in their understanding and control of a chameleon-like material that could be key to developing next-generation computers that are even more powerful than today’s silicon-based machines. See full story here. Read the full technical paper (“Modulating the Hysteresis of an Electronic Transition: Launching Alternative Transformation Pathways in the Metal–Insulator Transition of Vanadium(IV) Oxide”) here.
Alison Hoe (D3EM Fellow) & Dwayne McKinney join the PHATE team as MSEN PhD students. Welcome!
Congrats to Molly Jones for receiving best poster award at the 2017 Texas A&M Summer UG Research Poster Presentation, for her poster entitled “Imaging Phase Transformations in Multifunctional Alloys”.
New MS student Michael Deckard joins team, focusing on thermal properties of thermal energy storage composites. Also, we’re joined by TAMU UG research Aaron Garcia and REU UG Molly Jones (joining us from Ole Miss). Welcome to the team, all.
Congrats to Emily Emmons – first Shamberger graduate student to successfully defend her thesis!
Shamberger was notified that he is the recipient of the 2017 New Materials Educator award by ASEE, Materials Division. Shamberger will receive the award and present a paper at the 2017 ASEE Annual Conference in Columbus, OH.
‘Impact of cycle-hysteresis interactions on the performance of giant magnetocaloric effect refrigerants’ by Brown, Karaman, and Shamberger is selected by MRS for the “Best Paper award of 2016” for their Emerging Investigators Edition. See the full volume here.
Clarke et al. publish ‘Microstructure dependent filament forming kinetics in HfO2 programmable metallization cells’ in Nanotechnology, detailing the role of oxide microstructure on filament formation process. Congrats!
