||Materials properties originating from reduced physical dimensions and new nanoscale structures & morphologies enable uniquely enhanced materials performances and functionalities critical for advancing innovative technological frontiers such as quantum information science, nanoelectronics, sustainable energy production, and advanced environmental and healthcare technologies.
The symposium will cover the emerging synthesis, properties, modeling, and applications of both low-dimensional and general nanomaterials, such as two-dimensional (2D) materials, nanowires and nanotubes (1D), nanoparticles and quantum dots (0D), organic-inorganic hybrids, and their hierarchical assemblies.
Particularly, sessions will be focused on unique synthesis and fabrication strategies for nanomaterials towards new and enhanced properties & functionalities, and advanced device integration and applications. Examples of session topics include but are not limited to:
• Defect engineering, characterization, and applications in 2D materials (e.g., graphene, TMDC)
• Magnetic nanomaterials, integration, and applications (e.g., magnetocalorics)
• Computational modeling of fundamental properties in nanomaterials (e.g., electronic, mechanical)
• Materials innovation for nanolithography (e.g., self-assembled block copolymers, hybrid EUV resists)
• Neuromorphic computing materials (e.g., artificial synapse, memristors)
• Nanomaterials for energy conversion and water-energy nexus (e.g., catalysts, fuel cells, membranes)
• Organic and hybrid photovoltaic materials (e.g., hybrid perovskites, organic semiconductors)
• Nanomaterials for environmental and biomedical sensing (e.g., conductometric, impedance sensing)
