With the selection of 16 inaugural postdocs, the program seeks to develop the next generation of faculty leaders and help guide the school toward a more diverse and inclusive culture.
MIT undergraduate researchers Helena Merker, Harry Heiberger, and Linh Nguyen, and PhD student Tongtong Liu, exploit machine-learning techniques to determine the magnetic structure of materials.
Inaugural award goes to MIT condensed matter theory professors of physics.
APS honors Anna Frebel, Liang Fu, Nuh Gedik, Or Hen, Nuno Loureiro, Fredrick Seguin, and Jesse Thaler for research, applications, teaching, and leadership.
Over 50 years at MIT, Dresselhaus made lasting contributions to materials science within the research group of longtime collaborator and wife, Mildred Dresselhaus.
The findings may help researchers design “spintronic” devices and novel magnetic materials.
Newly synthesized compound of iron and tin atoms in 1-to-1 ratio displays unique behavior.
Circuit design offers a path to “spintronic” devices that use little electricity and generate practically no heat.
The ability to predict and make new materials faster highlights the need for safety, reliability, and accurate data.
