||Low-dimensional (0D, 1D, 2D) materials are a broad class of materials with emergent properties originating from their reduced physical dimensions, unique morphologies, and tunable chemistry. These low-dimensional materials offer exciting new opportunities for innovations in the technological frontiers critical for the sustainable future advancement of society, such as sustainable energy generation and storage applications, nano-optoelectronic devices, high-performance sensors, and advanced environmental and healthcare technologies.
The 2024 Symposium on Functional Nanomaterials will address all aspects of low-dimensional nanomaterials, encompassing: two-dimensional (2D), nanofilms, nanosheets, and monolayers, one-dimensional (1D) nanofibers, nanotubes, and nanowires, zero-dimensional (0D) nanoparticles and quantum dots, as well as their hierarchical assemblies, heterostructures, frameworks, and organic-inorganic hybrids.
Along with sessions for conventional nanomaterials, focused sessions will be dedicated to unique design/synthesis/fabrication/manufacturing/characterization strategies, novel integration routes for emerging functionalities, and advanced device applications.
Examples of session topics include but are not limited to:
• Synthesis, assembly, and characterization of low-dimensional materials
• Engineering hierarchical multi-scale structures and architectures consisting of low-dimensional materials and heterostructures thereof
• Design, fabrication, and measurements of high-performance functional devices based on nanomaterials
• Scalable processing/manufacturing (e.g, printing, lithography) on different flexible and/or rigid substrates
• Fundamental studies of emergent properties of architected nanomaterials and instrumentation/methods for characterization
• Interrogation of low-dimensional materials and their fundamental properties via in situ, operando methods
• Theoretical frameworks and computational/learning/data-intensive methods for modeling, predicting, understanding, and designing low-dimensional materials and their derivative systems
