Technical Meeting on Novel Nanomagnetic and Multifunctional Materials

Technical Meeting on Novel Nanomagnetic and Multifunctional Materials

 

The University of Maryland A. James Clark School of Engineering hosted the Technical Meeting on Novel Nanomagnetic and Multifunctional Materials, June 16-17. More than two dozen experts from around the world with backgrounds in both industry and academe gathered together to learn about 18 different abstracts on topics ranging from organic charge-transfer magnetoelectrics to design of magnetic iron oxide nanostructures.

Organized by Fischell Department of Bioengineering Professor and Associate Dean Peter Kofinas (Affiliate, Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering, Materials Science & Engineering) for the Asian Office of Aersopace Research and Development (AOARD) and the Air Force Office of Scientific Research (AFOSR), the event fosterd collaboration for the development of functionalized nanomagnetic and multifunctional materials for everyday applications such as sensing, detection, diagnosis and treatment of diseases, and renewable energy.

Kofinas’s presentation, “Multi-Ferroic Polymer Nanoparticle Composites for Next Generation Metamaterials,” focused on the fabrication of polymer nanoparticle composites and characterization of their radio frequency properties. Along with UMD graduate student Mert Vural (MSE) and Michigan State University Professor Leo C. Kempel, Kofinas has worked on developing a flexible magneto-dielectric material with mechanical and electromagnetic properties that would make it useful for the development of novel, stretchable radio frequency electronics.  

The UMD Department of Materials Science & Engineering, the Clark School Dean’s Office and the Division of Research sponsored the two-day meeting.
