S7: Multifunctional Metal Oxide Nanostructures and Heteroarchitectures for Energy and Device Applications



Metal oxides represent an assorted and appealing class of materials whereby the field of metal oxide nanostructured morphologies has become one of the most active research areas within the nano-science community. All the involved researchers are continuously proposing new fundamental research together with original and inspired potential applications, including nanostructures and heterostructures thereof for electronics, photonics, sensor technology, energy conversion and storage, and interfacing nanowires with living cells. This symposium will focus on science and engineering of nanostructured materials, with a strong focus on the recent innovation in nanotechnological approaches and their impact on the current challenges of energy and sustainability. In particular, special emphasis will be given to novel synthesis appraoches, functionalization, processing, and characterization of nanoparticles, nanowires and their heterostructures. Application of nanostructures in drug-delivery, catalysis, energy and sensing applications, nanocomposites in structural light weight materials, nansotructured coatings for photovoltaic, bio-medical and optical applications will form the major thrust areas.
