S10. Emerging Functionalities in Layered-oxide and Related Materials

EMA2016_650x65

 

Layered variations of oxide materials, such as binary compounds and clay-like structures, not only usually inherit the functional traits of their parents, but also possess multiple additional channels for property modification and fine-tuning. The realm of  current and prospective applications of these materials includes — but is not exhausted by — electronics, sensors, catalysts, and molecular sieves. Furthermore, plentiful opportunities for cross-pollination and fusion, as well as design of novel  functionalities exist by virtue of straightforward incorporation of slabs with different structure and chemical identity into the same, layered geometry. However, synthesis and processing of such complex interfacial compounds present a variety of serious  new challenges, compared to their “mundane” nonlayered counterparts. This symposium will bring together experts from academia, industry, and national laboratories to discuss the current state-of-the-art (and future directions) in theoretical modeling,  synthesis, characterization and processing of functional layered oxides, with a primary focus on electronic materials and their applications.

 

Proposed Session Topics

  • Synthesis, characterization, and processing of new layered materials
  • Soft-chemistry related material synthesis and transformation approaches
  • Chemistry and physics within interlayer galleries, including ionic and molecular defects, intercalation, and diffusion
  • Microstructures and nanostructures in layered materials
  • Theoretical modeling and design of materials with new functionalities across length scales
  • Device applications based on electronic and other functionalities, including molecular sensing, capture, and release

 

Symposium Organizers

  • Serge M. Nakhmanson, University of Connecticut, USA
  • Bharat Jalan, University of Minnesota, USA
  • Edward Gorzkowski, U.S. Naval Research Laboratory, USA
