Abstract:

Triggering a macroscopic change in a material in response to an environmental change is a monumental challenge, since environmental changes are often felt through molecular level interactions and events. This challenge can only be addressed by developing a fundamental understanding of the molecular recognition to materials transformation events that occur not only at multiple length scales, but also multiple time scales. Bridging these molecular to materials scales and bridging orders of magnitude time scales require a multidisciplinary approach. This workshop brought together experts with complementary backgrounds and expertise to address this challenge by developing strategies to fundamentally understand the factors that underpin molecular and interfacial forces in complex assemblies.
