FS6: Hybrid Materials and Processing Technologies

Screen Shot 2015-07-06 at 1.35.23 PM


New and hybrid materials that unify multiple properties are key for improved functional performance and device applications. Understanding the complexity of heterogeneous matter has triggered tremendous research activity exploring novel building blocks fundamental to the overall responsive performance, which can be enhanced through hierarchical organization of the structural constituents at various length scales and dimensionality. Hybridfunctional or multifunctional properties represent one of the important future directions for the advancements of materials and for future industries of the world. Hybrid materials can be classified based on multiple bonding characteristics (metallic/ionic/covalent) or differential scales (nano/micro/ macro) as well as phase and microstructure (crystalline/amorphous/voids). Especially, thin volume of hybrid interface having characteristic atomic or electronic structures will be one of important issues for developing new materials. Nanoscopic volume of hybrid interface can be predicted by materials computation technique that enables new design for exploring new materials. Advanced structural, electronic, and energy materials based on new interface morphology or composition as well as innovative processing techniques will be in the focus of this symposium. Also, new processes adapted to conventional processes, which are defined as hybrid processing, to obtain new microstructure and advanced materials and component fabrication will be covered. New design-characterization-application of nano/hybrid materials system in the field of biotechnology (tissue engineering, drug delivery, nanomedicine), energy, and catalysis are in the focus of the symposium.
