Scope This symposium aims to provide a forum for reporting novel surface engineering methods for introduction of useful properties, and for advanced methods of evaluating such properties. In particular, it will emphasize advanced scalable processing methods, suitable for implementation in an industrial setting. The symposium is envisioned to encompass surface engineering methods as separated into two broad categories, surface decoration and surface structure modification. Decoration approaches would include application of particles (CNTs; metal, oxide, ceramic, or plastic particles; etc.) or films (e.g., graphene/reduced graphene oxide, functionally-graded coatings, particle-included coatings, laminate coatings, ceramic coatings, etc.) to substrates, whereas surface structure modification approaches would include roughening, polishing, anodizing, deburring, etching (e.g., through photolithographic masks), micromachining, etc. A wide range of functional properties could be imparted by such modifications, in categories including mechanical (tribological, tribocorrosive), physical (hydrophobicity, hydrophilicity), chemical (catalysis, corrosion resistance), electrochemical (electrocatalysis, surface area enhancement), and electrical (insulative, as by oxides; conductive, as by graphene/reduced graphene oxide). It is envisioned that these enhanced properties will be relevant to areas of application including engines, high energy physics, capacitors, batteries, biomedical implants, fuel cell electrodes and balance of plant components, and many others.
