Gao and Ni on a deep learning method to predict elastic modulus field

By MRS on March 22, 2021

MRS Bulletin’s Impact editor Markus Buehler interviews Huajian Gao of Nanyang Technological University, Singapore and Bo Ni of Brown University on their development of a deep learning method to predict the elastic modulus field based on strain data that may be the result of an experiment. The method is highly efficient and offers real-time solutions to problems that usually require complex numerical methods that rely on variational methods to solve elasticity problems, like finite element analysis. This type of approach may change the way researchers interpret experimental data. See the article “A deep learning approach to the inverse problem of modulus identification in elasticity” (doi:10.1557/mrs.2020.231).


MRS Bulletin interview with David Morse of Corning, Inc.


By MRS on November 20, 2020

As part of the MRS Communications 10th Anniversary event, Gopal Rao, Chief Editor for Technical Content at MRS, interviews David Morse, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer at Corning, about research, development, and innovations at Corning. They discuss Corning’s contributions to addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, the company’s latest version of Gorilla glass, and Corning’s R&D efforts in ceramics as well as the role of industrial R&D labs in the research enterprise.


MRS Bulletin Interviews Julia Greer - from ion to atom to dendrite

By MRS on November 10, 2020

Markus Buehler of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and editor of the Impact section of MRS Bulletin interviews Julia Greer, director of the Kavli Nanoscience Institute at the California Institute of Technology about her research on the formation and nanomechanical behavior of electrodeposited lithium for Li-ion batteries. Greer’s group developed an in situ experimental methodology that allows them to electrochemically charge small-scale battery cells and to observe, in real-time, the formation of Li dendrites and to probe their mechanical response. Their work is published in MRS Bulletin (doi:10.1557/mrs.2020.148)

Felice Frankel on science photography

By MRS October 28, 2020

Judy Meiksin, news editor for MRS Bulletin, interviews science photographer Felice Frankel, a research scientist at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. In her Opinion & Perspective article in the Impact section of MRS Bulletin, Frankel maintains that formally addressing the critical visual component of research should be part of every researcher’s education. How researchers visually represent their work not only communicates to others, but also helps researchers clarify their own thinking. Frankel’s article is published in MRS Bulletin (doi:10.1557/mrs.2020.203).

Markus Buehler on de novo protein design

By MRS October 2, 2020

Gopal Rao, chief editor for technical content, interviews Markus Buehler of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and editor of the Impact section of MRS Bulletin about his research on designing new proteins. Buehler’s group trains a deep learning model whose architecture is composed of several long short-term memory units from data consisting of musical representations of proteins classified by certain features. Their work is published in APL Bioengineering.

Rigoberto C. Advincula on additive manufacturing for COVID-19

By MRS August 12, 2020

Rigoberto C. Advincula of the University of Tennessee-Knoxville and Oak Ridge National Laboratory, and Editor in Chief of MRS Communications, discusses the role of materials and additive manufacturing on the personal protective equipment (PPE) supply chain during the new coronavirus pandemic.
