Materials for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics

This symposium will cover:

(i)   Materials Synthesis: From 0D to 3D functional nanomaterials including hybrids.

(ii)  Properties: Electronics, optical, photonics, luminescent (experimental, analytical, modelling).

(iii) Applications: Electronics, sensing, photonics, plasmonics, luminescent, optoelectronics, energy.


Nanostructures, particularly from inorganic materials, ceramics, carbon, etc. family, are very important candidates because of their extremely high surface-to-volume and morphology-dependent extraordinary properties suitable for many advanced technologies. The ongoing deployments in the direction of confined nanostructures (0D, 1D, 2D) and their porous interconnected 3D networked materials have further become very relevant towards various applications. The porous 3D network material built out of nanoscale building blocks, offers very lot of utilization simplicities and simultaneous easy accessibility of nanoscale features make them very excellent candidates for applications, especially towards electronics and optics. Due to their compact synthesis forms, they can be easily handled or integrated in the desired manner in nanoelectronics devices or sensors. The confined nanostructures from noble metals (Au, Ag, Cu, etc.) have found immense applications in electronics, optoelectronics, sensing, photonics, and waveguides, 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 electronic, optical, optoelectronic and sensing technologies. When these metal oxides and metals are combined together in nanohybrids, they become further very relevant in terms of understanding the properties and accordingly electronics and optoelectronics applications. The carbon nanostructure family, i.e., fullerenes, carbon nanotubes, graphene, graphene oxide, etc., have shown very strong potentials in terms of fundamental properties as well as advanced electronics and optical applications and hence have been the subject of huge research attention in the last couple of decades. Recent developments in the direction of 3D carbon based networked materials have opened many new avenues in the direction of electronics and optics fields. The research on metal oxide nanostructures based three dimensional interconnected ceramics networks is currently in the main focus because they can be utilized as unique backbone for developing hybrid nanomaterials. The nanostructures from inorganic, metal oxide and carbon, etc. materials can be easily integrated in form of hybrid 3D networks which involves new structure dependent electronic and optical features for advanced nanoelectronics and nanophotonics related applications.                      


Appropriate growth strategies of different confined nanostructures using simple methods, understanding their different properties, and applications of these pure and hybrid nanomaterials in the direction of nanoelectronics and nanophotonics are key fundamental issues to which this proposed symposium in EMRS Fall 2019 is going to briefly address. Researchers with interdisciplinary expertizes could easily help each other to realize the materials growth and corresponding structure-property relationships. In this proposal it is aimed to bring: (i) synthesis groups for developing different nanostructures, (ii) theoretical/modelling scientists, (iii) experts from electronics and photonics fields who can accordingly utilize these materials in various applications, together to develop a discussion platform with the theme ‘materials for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics’ at European Materials Society Fall meeting in 2019 in Warsaw, Poland. Over the last few years, halide perovskite nanocrystals have gained significant attentions from electronics and photonics aspects. They have been intensively explored for light emission and photovoltaic applications. Recent developments towards synthesis, theoretical and applications of these perovskite nanocrystals will also be covered in this symposium during EMRS Fall 19 in Warsaw.
