Materials- nanoelectronics & -nanophotonics

This symposium will cover: 

  • Materials growth: From 0D - 3D nanomaterials.
  • Investigations: Structure-property Relations, Computation Modeling, Analytical Simulations. 
  • Applications: (a) Nanoelectronics- Gas/Pressure/Chemical/Biological Sensors, (b) Plasmonics/ Nanophotonics/Solar Cells/Photovoltaics, (c) Piezoelectrical/Energy Harvesting (e) Photocatalysis (f) Antiviral/Antibacterial/Biomedical.


Micro- and nanoscale structures particularly from inorganic metal oxide materials and carbon family are very important material candidates because of their size and shape dependent interesting physical and chemical properties suitable for various technological applications. The on going deployments in the direction of 2D and 3D networked materials have become further very relevant in terms of application aspects because, on one hand, they exhibit the necessary nanoscale features, and on the other hand, they exhibit less utilization complexities.  Due to their sufficiently large size, they can be easily handled or integrated in desired manner in the devices or sensors. Thanks to interesting plasmonic properties, 0D, 1D, 2D nanostructures from noble metals (Au, Ag, Cu, etc.) have found immense applications in sensing, biomedical, waveguides and telecommunications, etc. Nanostructures from metal oxides have been very interesting (fundamental as well applied) materials due to interesting bandgap values (intermediate between metals and insulators) suitable for various advanced technological applications. When these metal oxides are combined with metals in form of hybrid nanomaterials, they become further very relevant in terms of understanding the properties and accordingly applications. The family of carbon nanostructures, i.e., fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, etc., has shown very strong potential ranging from fundamental properties to advanced energy applications  and hence has been the subject of great attention in the past decades and the recent developments in the direction 3D carbon networks have opened an entirely new dimensions in nanotechnology research. Research on 3D flexible ceramics from metal oxides interconnected networks, which is currently going on now-a-days, is very important because it can be very helpful in up scaling the nanotechnology related applications.                       

However, the appropriate growth of different structures (0D, 1D, 2D and 3D) using simple methods, understanding their structure properties relations, their applications in different directions, etc. are still very interesting aspects and it requires an interdisciplinary research platforms which are equipped with: (i) fabrication groups for developing different nanostructures, (ii) computational scientists who can do simulations to understand the structure-property relations,  and (iii) application groups who can accordingly utilize the nanostructures in different applications and this is actually the main aim of the present symposium.
