Disrupting the research process: changing materials science with robotics, AI and autonomy

Dr. Benji Maruyama, a senior materials research engineer in the Functional Materials Division, Materials and Manufacturing Directorate, Air Force Research Laboratory, displays a model of a carbon nanotube structure. Carbon nanotubes are of great interest to materials scientists due to their strong, light-weight structure and ability to conduct heat and electricity better than many other materials. These nanotubes can be used in a number of different applications, from airplane wings to computer fiber, dental implants and even for oil spill clean-up. (U.S. Air Force photo/Marisa Novobilski).
