Scope This conference plans to bring together scientists and engineers who focus on advances in synthesis and processing, atomic-scale characterization, structure-property correlations and modeling of novel nanostructured materials. The scope of the conference includes zero dimensional (such as nanodots), one-dimensional (nanotubes and nanowires), two-dimensional (thin films) and three-dimensional (bulk) nanostructures. Integration of novel functional materials on practical substrates such as silicon and sapphire through the paradigm of domain matching epitaxy plays a critical role in creating multifunctional materials for next-generation systems and will be included as one of the important area of interest in the proposed symposium. The symposium highlights the science of the pulsed laser deposition and laser processing techniques, role of interfaces and defects for fabricating such novel materials, thin film heterostructures. It also focus on the recent discoveries of pulsed laser annealing induced formation of non-equilibrium nanostructures (e.g. Q-carbon, Q-BN and doped nanodiamonds). We cover the synthesis engineering of large area coverage of pure and doped quenched C and c-BN structures, nano- and microdiamonds (including NV diamonds) through pulsed laser processing which stands to revolutionize superhard coatings, high-temperature and high-power electronics, and biomedical applications.

Topics include:
- Non-equilibrium processes for the synthesis of novel nanostructures.
- Structure-properties correlations in thin film heterostructures.
- Atomic scale characterization of 0-D, 1-D, 2-D and 3-D nanostructures with novel functional properties.
- Pulsed laser deposition and laser processing of novel materials and thin film structures.
- Role of defects and interfaces in properties manipulations in nanostructures.
- Coatings and surface modifications for high-temperature and high-power electronics and biomedical applications.
- Q-carbon, Q-BN, Q-BN, nano- and microdiamonds
