  • Direct-write assembly of colloidal materials 

    Tan, Alvin Thong Lip. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Colloidal assembly, which is the spontaneous organization of nano- and micro- sized particles, is an attractive means to create materials with properties that can be engineered via hierarchy of particle composition, size, ...
  • First-principles studies of defects in colloidal nanocrystals 

    Liu, Yun,Ph.D.Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Department of Materials Science and Engineering. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    Solar energy is one of the few renewable, low-carbon sources with both the maturity and accessibility to meet the ever-increasing global demand for energy. There are also accounting for an increasing percentage of our ...
  • Assessing byproduct mining and metal recycling as indicators of material criticality 

    Fu, Xinkai. (Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2019)
    The development of advanced technologies relies on using a broader suite of elements from the periodic table, and many agree that the future availability of a set of 'critical materials' is an issue of global concern. ...
