FS2-Advanced Ceramic Materials and Processing for Photonics and Energy

Register for ICACC'15


In the past few years significant progress has been reported on the synthesis as well as on the structural, physical and chemical characterization of selfassembled metal oxide nanostructures with sizes in the range of 1-100 nm that exhibit size-dependent properties and on novel glass based materials for optical lasers and amplifiers. The field of nanostructured materials (e.g. nanowires, nanorods, nanotetrapods) has become one of the most active research areas within the nano-science community. Such materials are leading to fundamental new discoveries as well as applications in Photovoltaics, Optical sources, Electroceramics, Multi-ferroic materials, Catalysis and Solar Hydrogen. Optical glasses have been employed in the fabrication of high power fiber lasers with unprecedented performance and for optical waveguide based devices with multiple functionalities. This session focuses on synthesis, structural and functional characterization of self-organized materials and nanostructures of all ceramic materials with application potentials as functional materials, with particular consideration given to the capability to tailor and control material properties via surface and structural modifications. The session also includes novel optical glass based materials with new functionalities, new emission wavelengths and with an overview toward integration with other classes of materials (polymers, metals). Furthermore, this focused session will also be devoted to new nanotechnology tools and technological procedures useful for the development of new functional devices integrating bottom-up and top-down technologies.
