SYMPOSIUM 2: Advanced Processing for Electronic and Electrochemical Systems: Crystals, Films and Devices



This symposium will bring together researchers from academia, government laboratories, and industry to discuss the synthesis science, integration challenges and resulting properties of advanced materials for electronic or electrochemically functional systems. Advances in mechanisms of material preparation and integration that lead to new materials discovery, new property opportunities, increased reliability, new form factors, and extensions to performance limits are of particular interest. Topics of interest include: 1) Advances in thin film, thick film, single crystal, or 2-D material synthesis, particularly those that access challenging processing windows, stabilize new phases, or create structures far from equilibrium; 2) Advances in understanding of unusual or unexpected electronic or electrochemical properties enabled by these non-equilibrium structures 3) Advances in in situ monitoring technologies that probe the structure, mechanisms, or kinetics of materials growth; 4) Advances in materials integration including designing interfaces between dissimilar materials, assembly of multi-component nanostructures, or fabrication of sophisticated device platforms. 


Proposed Sessions:

  • Refined synthesis routes to enable and advance properties
  • Controlling phase assemblage in crystals, films, and nano-layers
  • Accessing and stabilizing non-equilibrium phases and nanostructures
  • Managing growth with volatile species
  • Using synthesis science to regulate point defects
  • Theory and modeling to enhance and inform synthesis
  • In situ thin film characterization to guide materials synthesis
  • Interface engineering for novel properties or improved stability
  • Novel substrates and electrodes
  • Synthesis under extreme conditions: pressure, fields, or temperature
