From July 10th – July 15th, the 1st annual Summer School on Materials Growth and Design brought graduate students, postdoctoral research associates, faculty members, industrial employees, and members of the National Science Foundation (NSF) to the Johns Hopkins University (JHU). The summer school was supported by a NSF Material Innovation Platform (MIP) grant. Led by Professor Tyrel M. McQueen and Dr. W. Adam Phelan of JHU, the highly successful workshop featured a lecture series with scientists from across the globe and a hands-on laboratory component. Both aspects emphasized single crystal growth, drawing on many different crystal growth techniques suitable for participants of varying scientific backgrounds.
Next summer’s workshop will be hosted from July 23rd to the 28th 2017 (JHU Summer School 2017). The lecture topics and hands-on experiments are still pending. Please access the above link at a later date for more up-to-date schedules.
Lecture videos for the 2016 school are available to the public free of charge and can be accessed using the link below.
