Abstract:
The latest research from Cambridge University on Material Technologies will be showcased at a Horizon seminar taking place at Magdalene College next month.

Materials on the Horizon

Cambridge, UK | Posted on November 16th, 2008

This one day symposium will look at some of the current leading-edge research
which has transformed civilisation and both advanced and limited our technical reach.

Professor Lindsay Greer, head of the University's Department of Materials Science and Metallurgy will kick off the day with a session looking at some of the sophisticated processes and materials developed by the University and its partners. The day will cover topics including materials for energy efficient lighting, carbon nanotechnology for a range of applications, thin-film and coating technologies, and materials for new electronics.

Professor Jeremy Baumberg, Director of the Cambridge Nanophotonics Centre, will round off the afternoon with an exposition of some of the Centre's work on creating passive and active photonic materials with nano-scale structural features for a range of applications.

From transport, defence, security, information and communications technology, to advanced manufacturing, this event will look at materials which are fundamental to a host of cutting-edge and basic technologies used in our daily lives now and in the future.

HORIZON is the University of Cambridge's leading seminar series which provides an exclusive insight in to the most exciting areas of leading edge and interdisciplinary research. Participants will get a first look at new developments and technologies coming out of the University and have the opportunity to meet researchers and academics.

The latest issue of the University of Cambridge's research magazine, Research Horizons, includes a focus on Materials. Please visit the Research Horizons website (website link on the upper right hand of this page) to read more about the latest discoveries and innovations.

Materials on the Horizon will take place at Cripps Court, Magdalene College, Cambridge on Tuesday 9th December. The Horizon Seminar series is organised by the University of Cambridge's Research Services Division (RSD).

Booking information and a full programme is available at the Horizon Seminars webpage.
