Nanoelectronic materials and devices


Advanced carbon materials

Synthesis of various types of carbon films and carbon nanomaterials (nanotubes, fullerenes, graphene, graphyne, nanoparticles) as well as their applications have been attracted considerable attention in the fields of energy storage and conversion, catalysis, nanomedicine, environment, sensing, electronics, and engineering.


This symposium covers the synthesis and applications of various advanced carbon materials, including different types of carbon films and coatings (e.g., conductive diamond, diamond-like carbon (DLC), graphene, graphyne) and carbon nanomaterials (e.g. fullerenes, CNTs, diamond/carbon/graphene nanoparticles/dots, carbon foam, diamond nanowires, porous diamond, carbon nanofibers). The topics of this symposium includes various top-down and bottom-up synthetic routes to synthesize novel nanocarbons like graphyne and C18. The symposium will cover different ex- and in-situ techniques to characterize and investigate these advanced materials. Surface and interface properties will be emphasized. Of particular focus is their applications in the fields of electrochemical energy storage and conversion, photo and electrochemical catalysis, nanomedicine, environmental degradation, electrochemical/ biochemical sensing, electronics and engineering. Various photochemical and electrocatalytic reactions (e.g., hydrogen evolution reaction, oxygen reduction reaction, CO2 reduction reactions), medicine and drug delivery, organic synthesis and photoelectrochemical degradation of environmental pollutants, sensing using color centers in diamond films and nanodiamond particles, the construction of supercapacitors and batteries, high power and mechanical devices (e.g., cutting tools) using various bulk/nanostructured/porous carbon nanomaterials are covered in this symposium. The fabrication, characterization, and application of advanced carbon material based electrochemical devices and systems (e.g., electrode arrays, energy devices, mechanical devices) will be also highlighted.
