When studying extremely fast reactions in ultrathin materials, two measurements are better than one. A new research tool invented by researchers at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LLNL), Johns Hopkins University and the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) captures information about both temperature and crystal structure during extremely fast reactions in thin-film materials.More
White House Report Acknowledges Department Efforts
In a recent White House progress report on the Materials Genome Initiative (MGI), the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at Johns Hopkins University is credited for its commitment to releasing the computational materials teaching modules it has developed and tested in undergraduate courses. This effort will help equip students with the simulation and modeling skills necessary for a next-generation materials science workforce.
MGI was launched in 2011 by President Barack Obama as a commitment to advanced materials discovery, innovation, manufacture, and commercialization. The initiative encourages increased collaboration between Federal agencies, industry, professional societies, and academia.
