2021 MLK SYMPOSIUM
The 2021 Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Symposium will feature a different format from past years, but with the same emphasis on the message and lessons of the late civil rights leader.

Mapping quantum structures with light
A new tool that uses light to map out the electronic structures of crystals could reveal the capabilities of emerging quantum materials and pave the way for advanced energy technologies and quantum computers, according to researchers at the University of Michigan, University of Regensburg and University of Marburg.
Lithium metal batteries, capable of doubling the capacity of today’s standard lithium-ion cells, can be built utilizing much of the current battery manufacturing system, a finding from U-M researchers that removes a major hurdle for automakers looking to embrace the next major evolution in energy storage technology for electric vehicles.
