FS4: Advanced Ceramic Materials and Processing for Photonics and Energy


In the past few years significant progress has been reported on the synthesis
as well as on the structural, physical and chemical characterization of self-assembled
metal oxide nanostructures with sizes in the range of 1-100 nm
that exhibit size-dependent properties. The field of nanostructured materials
(e.g. nanowires, nanorods, nanotetrapods) has become one of the most active
research areas within the nano-science community. Such materials are leading
to fundamental new discoveries as well as applications in Photovoltaics,
Electroceramics, Multi-ferroic materials, Catalysis and Solar Hydrogen.


This session focuses on synthesis, structural and functional characterization
of self-organized materials and nanostructures of all ceramic materials with
application potentials as functional materials, with particular consideration
given to the capability to tailor and control material properties via surface and
structural modifications. Furthermore, this focused session will also be devoted
to new nanotechnology tools and technological procedures useful for the
development of new functional devices integrating bottom-up and top-down
