The AZoM.com "Materials Thought Leaders" series is a selection of articles that cover the key technology areas where materials are making an impact and where they will make an increasing impact. All the articles are written by experts who have been invited as recognised leaders in their fields to provide a "state of the art" contribution.
Dr. Stuart Chalk, Professor of Chemistry, University of North Florida, talks to AZoM about the challenges facing researchers and industry when accessing scientific data, the research he is conducting and how resources like SpringerMaterials are helping make it easier to access.
Caloric materials are a class of materials that demonstrate interesting thermodynamic behaviour - when they are exposed to an external field they exhange heat with the environment.
As we continue to create increasingly exotic structures, such as metal-organic frameworks and inorganic nanotubes, and probe complex phenomena such as superconductivity; crystallography is becoming an increasingly important tool.
Dynamic nuclear polarization (DNP) is a technique used to boost signal intensities in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) experiments.
Dr. Pawliszyn, University of Waterloo, talks to AZoM about the Solid Phase Micro Extraction and his upcoming talk at Pittcon 2017.
AZoM spoke to Daryl Williams about the new developments Surface Measurement Systems are working on that will open up the field of DVS to new frontiers of science.
AZoM spoke to Prof. Karl Ryder about the novel solvents his research group are developing for electroplating and electropolishing, and the integral role optical profiling plays in his research.
Prof Nathan Lewis, talks to AZoM.com about his research into a nanoscience-based system and the development of an artificial photosynthetic system.
Prof. Sanford Asher, talks to AZoM.com about his research into the development of photonic crystals and spectroscopic methods for studying complex systems.
In this interview, Professor Wendelin Stark speaks to AZoM about a new gelatin-based yarn his research group have been developing. It is hoped that this yarn will find application in the medical industry thanks to its biocompatible nature.
