G8: Multifunctional coatings for sustainable energy and environmental applications

HTCMC9_750x120_new

 

Multifunctional coatings for sustainable energy and environmental applications This symposium invites scientists, engineers, and practitioners from around the world to discuss advances in coating technologies, which offer new or improved functions onto material surfaces through physical, mechanical, thermal, chemical, optical, electrical, electronic, and magnetic properties, for sustainable energy and environmental applications. These functional coatings include thin-film technologies, such as physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition, and sol-gel methods; and thick-film technologies, such as thermal spray, cold spray, aerosol deposition, and suspension plasma spray. The goal of the symposium is to identify current key issues, effective approaches, and future outlooks for functional coating technologies and applications through comprehensive discussion.

 

Proposed session topics:

 

• Innovative coating technologies for various industrial products, including automobiles, gas turbines, electronic devices, and mechanical parts

• Conventional coating processes, including thermal spray, physical vapor deposition, chemical vapor deposition, and sol-gel technologies

• Novel coating processes, including suspension plasma spray, cold spray, and aerosol deposition

• Coatings for new functional applications

• Functionally graded coatings and materials

• Thermal barrier coatings and environmental barrier coatings

• Nanostructured and multifunctional coatings

• Interface phenomena, adhesion, and other coating fundamentals

• Technical issues and potential solutions of surface-related properties and processes in industry

• Characterization of microstructure and properties of coatings

• Next-generation production methods for surface engineering
