How are the materials being designed to demonstrate superior materials properties?
The field of materials science is constantly making advances in important areas that impact modern society. One of the best ways to learn about recent advances in a certain topic area is by following trade journals of professional societies. The Materials Research Society (MRS) publishes
a monthly periodical named the MRS Bulletin which covers a different application area each issue. In this assignment, you are asked to read one article from each of the following MRS Bulletin issues: 1. Materials & Engineering: Propelling Innovation (Volume 40, Issue 12) 2. Materials for
Energy Harvesting (Volume 43, Issue 3) 3. The machine learning revolution in materials research (Volume 44, Issue 7) Summarize the contents of those articles and discuss the importance of those materials to the field particular application at hand. Critical questions to ask include: What are the materials described in these articles? How do they function relative to a certain application or topic area? What materials properties are
the most important for that application? How are the materials being designed to demonstrate superior materials properties? Include full citations of the articles that you read at the end of your essay. Utilize the citation format employed in the MRS Bulletin (Hint: look at the citations at the
end of the article that you’re reading). As this assignment will have a weight of 5%, you are expected to a minimum of 500 words for each paper (excluding references). need 500 words per article and do not combine articles.
