Materials Science and Engineering Initiative focuses on sustainability

Materials Science and Engineering Initiative focuses on sustainability: "Materials Science and Engineering Initiative focses on sustainability"



"UC Santa Cruz researchers are developing new materials for a wide range of devices and products, from solar cells to surfboards

"It sounds like something out of science fiction, but a magnetic skyrmion is a real thing, and skyrmion-based devices might someday dominate data storage and processing, combining high speed, low energy consumption, and small size.
UC Santa Cruz physicist David Lederman studies the materials needed to create and control skrymions, which are very stable, very small magnetic structures. He leads a team of scientists and engineers at three UC campuses and a national laboratory who are working to understand the fundamental physics of these structures while assessing the feasibility of using them in data storage and processing devices."
"Like the field of materials science in general, the project straddles the divide between basic and applied research. "There's a lot of fundamental science involved, but at the end of the day, you want to come up with something useful," Lederman said.
Materials science is also inherently interdisciplinary, he said, involving chemistry, physics, engineering, and even biology. Lederman directs the Materials Science and Engineering Initiative at UC Santa Cruz, which includes faculty in several departments in the Division of Physical and Biological Sciences and the Baskin School of Engineering."
