Scope In the past few years, significant progress has been reported on the synthesis as well as on the structural, physical and chemical characterization of self-organized thin films, including for example III/V semiconductors, metal oxides and novel glass based materials. Such materials are being increasingly studied for applications in electronics and photonics.

When grown in nanostructured form (with sizes in the range of 1-100 nm), these systems exhibit size-dependent properties. These advanced materials systems are leading to fundamental new discoveries as well as applications in Photovoltaics, Optical sources, Electroceramics, Multi-ferroic materials, Catalysis and Solar Hydrogen.

This symposium focuses on the synthesis, structural and functional characterization of self-organized materials thin films and nanostructures for applications in electronics and photonics, with particular consideration given to the capability to tailor and control material properties via structural modifications. In addition, we will also consider new nanotechnology tools and technological procedures used for the development of functional devices that integrate bottom-up and top-down technologies.

Proposed Session Topics include the following:
- Multi-functional materials
- Thin Films and Nanostructured materials for photonics, including laser sources, nonlinear optics, photovoltaics and solar fuels
- Thin Films and Nanostructured materials for electronics, including sensing
