S7: 10th International Symposium on Nanostructured Materials: Functional Nanomaterials and Thin Films for Sustainable Energy Harvesting, Environmental, and Health Applications

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 1.35.23 PM


This symposium will focus on the functional inorganic and composite materials and techniques that offer advanced processing, superior properties, and energy-efficient synthesis with particular emphasis on novel synthesis approaches, surface functionalization, and heterostructuring of nanoparticles, nanowires, nanoscopic films. Application of nanostructures in photocatalysis, energy and sensing applications, nanostructured coatings for photovoltaic, and bio-medical applications will form the major thrust areas. Contributions related to energy applications such batteries, fuel cells, water splitting, as well as transparent conductors and challenges related to the large-scale production and integration of functional and structural nanomaterials are welcome to submit their abstracts.
