On the 9th of April, the Faculty of Materials Science launched a new educational project – online lecture series course. Twice a week one of famous scientists from the world’s leading universities will tell about the most advanced areas of state-of-the-art materials science.
The first lecture on “The order and how we understand it” was given by Alexei Bosak – the eminent graduate of the Faculty of Materials Science, now a leading researcher of the European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (ESRF) in Grenoble (France). This was followed by an online lecture on “Radiation Detection” by Head of the Department of Chemistry and Radiochemistry Department of MSU, prof. S.N. Kalmykov.
So far, 8 invited lectures have taken place from the following scientists: prof. Keith Stevenson (University of Texas in Austin, USA; Scoltech, Russia) "Advanced materials for energy storage: challenges and opportunities"; Ivan Turkevych (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology, Japan) “Solar energy and photocatalytic water splitting”, prof. Aron Walsh (Imperial College London, UK) “New Adventures in Materials Modeling”, prof. Yury Gogotsi (Drexel University, USA) “The Rise of MXenes”, Wolfgang Tress (University of Munich, Germany) “Device physics of perovskite solar cells”, prof. Henk Bolink (University of Valencia, Spain) “Vacuum deposition techniques for modern photovoltaics”.
