An Assessment of New Materials Synthesis and Crystal Growth in United States

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

The committee of 16 members was drawn from the broad community of condensed-matter physicists and materials researchers, and included experts in bulk materials synthesis and crystal growth (oxide, intermetallic, semiconductor, and organic synthesis) and both experimentalists and theorists. It prepared a report to address the following tasks: (1) Define the research area of new materials synthesis and crystal growth, framing the activities in the broader context of the condensed-matter and materials sciences; (2) Assess the health of the collective U.S. research activities in new materials synthesis and crystal growth; (3) Articulate the relationship between synthesis of bulk and thin-film materials ... continued below
