||This symposium is dedicated to the science and technology of producing, processing, consolidating, and characterizing particulate materials with structural components of the order of 100nm or less. The main scope of this symposium will cover both a broad range of conventional and novel nanoparticle production techniques and a wide spectrum of methods for the consolidation of bulk nanostructured materials. The particle production approaches will include mechanical and chemical synthesis methods for various materials systems. A special research topic, co-hosted by the Ultrafine Grained Materials Symposium, will address the consolidation of nanostructured particulates into bulk ultrafine or nanograined components. This topic will include the science and technology of consolidating nanoparticles via conventional and field-assisted sintering and pressing techniques and the analyses of the resulting properties of bulk, ultrafine or nanostructured components produced from powders.
Additional sessions will address advanced characterization techniques and methods for handling and processing nanoparticles.
The main topic sessions for this symposium are outlined below:
- Production of Nanoparticulate Materials
- Processing, Characterization and Handling of Nanoparticulates
- Bulk Nanostructured Materials via Conventional and Field-assisted Powder Processing
||Planned: Publication Outside of TMS
