Listed below are the talks given at the MRS Millie Memorial held on Monday, November 7, 2017, which are published with permission of the speakers and of MRS. The talks were edited by Shoshi Dresselhaus-Cooper (Millie’s granddaughter) with help from Prof. Jing Kong and her students.
These talks were edited specifically to allow many different types of readers to look through and appreciate their content.
Each MRS talk begins with an anecdote about Millie (unless otherwise noted). This is followed by many photos of Millie and a technical talk. Often, speakers mention Millie at the end of the talk, as well. In some cases (particularly in the Nanotube section), additional anecdotes about Millie will be found there.
Key terms have been defined and clarified for ease of reading, using footnotes. Click on the footnote number, and the definition will pop up above it.
The amount of technicality within each talk has been noted within the summary, via the use of buckyballs: ⚽ (1 buckyball) is the least technical, ⚽⚽⚽ (3 buckyballs) is the most technical.
Thank you to Cosmi Lin, Mingda Li, Lin Zhou, Jing Kong, and the others at MIT who helped me to edit these very technical lectures. Also, thank you to Qiming Shao for helping me edit Prof. Wang’s talk.
