August 2018 Webinar: Atomically Precise Manufacturing

Thursday, August 16, 2018,
9:00pm to 10:00pm
Virtual / Online
United States

Atomically Precise Manufacturing (APM) refers to newly emerging capabilities to produce materials and devices that are virtually defect-free. Atomically precise products will provide game- changing advances in energy applications and beyond. The presentation will describe the Dept. of Energy Advanced Manufacturing Office programming in this technology space, and the projects that are being funded. Approaches include new methods for atomically precise catalysts, self-assembly of engineered molecular building blocks, positional assembly using scanning probe microscopes, and positional assembly using molecular machine systems. The qualitative differences between APM and conventional technologies (such as atomic layer deposition and single crystal growth, which are not atomically precise) will be discussed.

Dr. David Forrest is a Technology Manager in the Department of Energy’s Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO), where he focuses on Atomically Precise Manufacturing, high performance materials, and advanced material processes. He also manages the High Performance Computing forManufacturing program at AMO as well as projects in AMO’s SBIR-STTR Program. Dr. Forrest earned his doctorate degree in materials engineering at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1993. He is a Fellow of ASM International.
