Nanomaterials and advanced characterization


Smart materials for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics

This symposium will cover:

(i)   Materials Synthesis: From 0D and 1D nanomaterials including their 3D networks
(ii)  Properties: Electrical, optical, thermal, luminescent (experimental, analytical, computational)
(iii) Applications: Electronics, Photonics, Plasmonics, Energy, Battery, Display Technologies 


Smart Materials based nanostructures are very important candidates in context of nanoelectronics and nanophotonics 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) and their 3D network forms have further become very relevant towards various applications. The porous 3D network materials built out of 0D and 1D nanostructure building blocks, offer many utilization simplicities as they can be easily integrated into devices. The simultaneous easy accessibility of 0D and 1D nanofeatures make 3D networks very excellent candidates for applications, especially towards electronics, optics, photonics, energy, etc. 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 and perovskites have found immense applications in electronics, optoelectronics, sensing, photonics, and energy, etc. Nanostructures from metal oxides (Zinc oxide, Tin Oxides, etc.) 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. Recent developments in the direction of 0D and 1D nanostructures-based 3D network materials have opened many new avenues in the direction of electronics and optics fields. The research on metals and metal oxides nanostructure (0D and 1D) based t3D interconnected networks are currently in the main focus because they can be utilized as unique backbone for developing advanced nanomaterials. The nanostructures from inorganic, metal oxide 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 (0D and 1D) nanostructures using simple methods, understanding their different properties, and applications of these pure and hybrid materials in the direction of electronics and photonics are key fundamental issues to which this proposed symposium in E-MRS Spring 2023 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 0D and 1D nanostructures (including their 3D networks), (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 ‘Smart Materials for nanoelectronics and nanophotonics’ at E-MRS Spring meeting in 2023 in Strasbourg, France.

Hot topics to be covered by the symposium:

(i)  Smart Materials: Synthesis, Characterizations, Structure-property relations, Analytical and simulation studies, etc.
(ii)  Electronics: Nanoelectronics, Memristive Devices, Piezoelectric, Energy Technologies, etc.
(iii) Photonics: Optics, Plasmonics, THz optics, Nanostructures for emission, Nanolasers, Solar Cells, Display Technologies, Challenges and integration of nanoelectronics and nanophotonics, etc.
