Mahmoud Hussein University of Colorado, Boulder, Smead Department of Aerospace Engineering Sciences Abstract: Thermoelectric materials convert heat into electricity or vice versa through a solid-state process. For the conversion efficiency to be competitive with fluid-based technologies, a thermoelectric material must be a good insulator of heat while, simultaneously, exhibit good electrical properties‒a combination that is hard to find in common materials. Here we present the concept of a locally resonant nanophononic metamaterial (NPM) to overcome this natural trade-off in properties. One…

Planet

Hannah Jang-Condell University of Wyoming Abstract:  Exoplanets have been discovered in orbits as close as 0.05 AU, and as distant as hundreds of AU.  Hence, exoplanets are a hot topic, and they are also pretty cool.  Because these systems are so different from our own Solar System, they challenge conventional ideas of how planets form.  I will discuss what we can learn about planet formation both by examining the distribution of mature exoplanets as well as by directly studying infant…

Scott Jackson Los Alamos National Laboratory, Shock and Detonation Physics Group Abstract:  Condensed-phase explosives provide one of the most high-power and energy-dense storage materials available. They are commonly detonated to perform work on adjacent materials for engineering applications in the defense and mining industries, with several billion kilograms used in the United States alone per year. Despite their engineering utility and high level of use, very little is known about the reaction-zone physics and high-pressure product states generated during detonation…
