This year's program will showcase recent advances in the development of novel characterization methods (“new eyes”) for probing structural, physical and chemical properties of materials with spatial resolution ranging from atomic to macroscopic length scales. Professor Xiaowei Zhuang, Chemistry and Chemical Biology and Physics , Harvard University, and Howard Hughes Medical Institute Investigator, will be the 2012 Sproull lecturer. Dr. Vic Liu, Senior Materials Scientist, Electrochemical Energy Research Laboratory at General Motors; Dr. Frances M. Ross, Research Staff Member, Physical Sciences Department, at IBM; and Cornell faculty members will present recent advances in industry and at Cornell. The Symposium will also feature the ever-popular poster session highlighting Cornell’s entire research portfolio, and Cornell’s graduate students and postdocs.
