The Long term Aging of Autonomous STructures (LAAST) seminar series focuses on reliability and aging of devices for energy conversion, information processing or sensing. It brings together an interdisciplinary group of speakers from engineering, physics and chemistry investigating key issues such as defect generation, failure mechanisms, emergent phenomena, non-equilibrium thermodynamics, atomistic simulations, and probabilistic predictions, as well as new ideas such as self-healing and autonomous structures.
