Meeting Materials Science & Technology 2019
Symposium Materials vs Minerals: Bridging the Gap between Materials Science and Earth and Planetary Science
Organizer(s) Jessica Rimsza, Sandia National Labs
Krishna Muralidharan, University of Arizona
Thomas Zega, University of Arizona
Scope An overarching theme that unifies geoscientists, planetary scientists and materials scientists is their common interests in understanding and characterizing the structure-property-phase stability relations of a variety of oxide and non-oxide ceramics and glasses, as well as metallic systems in diverse chemical and thermal environments. This symposium aims to bring together a diverse group of scientists in order to define and address overlapping grand-challenges that underlie the fields of materials science and engineering and earth and planetary science. Towards this end, some of the relevant topics that will be included in this symposium are

• Phase stability of multiphase, multicomponent systems
• Transport properties of minerals and geoceramics (diffusion, viscosity, thermal, ionic and electrical conductivity)
• Molecules, nanoclusters and materials in extreme environments
• Mineral-water and mineral-organics interactions
• Inorganic materials for radioactive waste and carbon sequestration,

Abstracts that integrate theory, modeling and simulations with experiments are particularly encouraged.
