Nebraska MRSEC/Industry Workshop
For the second time, Nebraska MRSEC held its Industry Workshop. The workshop entitled “Nanomaterials for Industry Applications” was focused on ongoing and developing research collaborations between industrial and university scientists and engineers was held in Lincoln, Nebraska on March 23, 2012. The workshop provided a stimulating forum for recent research, technological developments, and discussion among the nearly 90 attending industrial researchers and faculty, graduate students and research staff.
Frederick Pinkerton (General Motors) discussed Nanomaterials Research for Automotive Technology, An Chen (Globalfoundries Inc.) talked about Resistive Switching Memories, Oleksandr Mosendz (Hitachi) addressed Media for Temperature Assisted Magnetic Recording, and William Gallagher (IBM) overviewed Magnetic Memory Technologies. James Hilfiker of the J. A. Wollam Company in Lincoln discussed the development and application of Spectroscopic Ellipsometry. Mathias Schubert gave an overview of the Nebraska Center for Nanohybrid Functional Materials, and Alexei Gruverman and Ralph Skomski discussed research being performed by Nebraska MRSEC.
This Workshop was most effective in promoting new and extended collaborations of MRSEC faculty and students with major companies in the USA.
