Scope & Topics

Smart materials are designed materials showing one or more functionalities that can be significantly changed in a controlled fashion by external stimuli, such as stress, moisture, electric or magnetic fields, light, temperature, pH, or chemical compounds. Nanomaterials are materials with typical size features in the lower nanometer size range and characteristic mesoscopic properties. These properties make them attractive objects of fundamental research and potential new applications. The scope of Symposium D6. Smart and Nano Materials covers the preparation, characterization and application of all related materials. Symposium topics will include (but not limited to):

  1. Smart materials and their applications: environmental sensors, optoelectronic and piezoelectric materials, shape memory materials, thermoelectric materials, artificial actuators
  2. Nanomaterials and their applications: graphene, transition metal dichalcogenide (TMD) monolayers, quantum dots, nanoparticles, nanotubes/nanowires, nanostructured frameworks, surface coating technologies, thin films, nanocomposites, self-assemblies
  3. Methodologies: (1) synthesis of smart or nano materials; (2) characterization of mesoscopic properties; (3) modeling computation of smart or nano materials or mesoscopic effects
  4. New applications of smart and nano material
