October 2017: ACS Monterey Bay Lecture Series

Design, Fabrication, and Testing of Functional Nanomaterials
Prof. Claudia C. Luhrs, Naval Postgraduate School, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering
Date: Friday, October 27, 2017, 6 – 9 PM
Location: Sesnon House, Cabrillo College, 6500 Soquel Dr., Aptos CA 95003

Claudia C. Luhrs is a Professor at the Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering Department of the Naval Postgraduate School located in Monterey, CA. She has 18 years of experience working for diverse academic institutions and for the industry in areas related to Materials Science and Engineering with an emphasis in nanosystems, their characterization, and testing. She has more than 50 international peer-reviewed journal publications and 11 issued patents. Claudia was a Fulbright Fellow in 2016. Reactions of phosphorus fertilizers with soils and the impacts of chemical equilibria on plant growth and crop yield will be discussed. Possible thermodynamic reactions in soils that affect the solubilization/precipitation of added phosphorus fertilizers for crop production will also be presented.

Abstract: This talk will present some of the strategies used to fabricate nanomaterials and the impact of the preparation routes on the microstructures generated. The correlation between structural features and materials reactivity, thermal, electrical and mechanical properties will be discussed. Study cases will include materials for energy storage, shock resistance, and structural applications.
