Symposium Interfaces, Grain Boundaries and Surfaces from Atomistic and Macroscopic Approaches -- Fundamental and Engineering Issues

Scope Interfaces between dissimilar materials and grain boundaries separating differently oriented crystals of the same material appear in almost all technological material systems. Examples include thin film materials for information storage, fuel cells, coatings, joins, and composites.

It is the goal of this session to establish an environment conductive to promoting communication and collaboration between groups using continuum approaches (e.g. thermodynamics) with groups studying the atomistic structure of interfaces, since bridging this particular scientific gap has the potential to generate new design criteria for advanced material systems. Topics for this session include:

• interface thermodynamics (interfacial energy, wetting, equilibrium crystal shapes);
• interface chemistry (segregation, adsorption, charge distribution at interfaces);
• interface structure (application of atomistic characterization techniques to probe the atomistic structure);
• complexions vs. wetting films of phases at surfaces and interfaces;
• the kinetics of interface and surface morphological changes (grain growth, faceting kinetics, surface and interface diffusion);
• atomistic simulations designed to understand the influence of local atomistic structure on the electronic structure and vice versa, and to predict or explain the properties of the surface and/or interface;
• organization of polycrystals and polycrystalline material properties;
• interface engineering for applications;

The goals of this symposium are to provide a well thought-out framework for scientific discussions of the issues listed above. This will include invited and submitted presentations to clearly present the open questions which the community must face in order to merge continuum and atomistic approaches of interface science.
