Symposium NM04—Nanotubes and Related Low-Dimensional Nanostructures

Nanotubes and related low-dimensional nanostructures, such as carbon nanotubes, and other non-carbon nanotubes and nanosheets (materials in the B-C-N system, including boron nitride, and boron), have attracted tremendous attentions for their unique structures and intriguing properties. These nanomaterials have been widely investigated spanning synthesis, structure and property characterization to applications and industrialization in electronic devices, energy generation and storage, biological and chemical sensors etc.. This symposium will emphasize fundamental aspects of these materials as well as emerging technologies which utilize their exceptional properties, such as artificial intelligence and additive manufacturing. We will bring together researchers from different disciplines to discuss the fundamental and industrial aspects of theory, synthesis, assembly, characterization, and application.

Topics will include:

  • Synthesis, doping, and characterization
  • Theoretical study on the growth, doping, and the fundamental properties
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence
  • Approaches for purification, modification and sorting
  • Synthesis and characterization of B-C-N thin films and novel heterostructures
  • Energy harvesting, conversion, and storage
  • Multifunctional devices for wearable electronics, etc.
  • Advanced functional materials, composites, etc.
  • Nanomaterial/biomolecule interactions: biochemical applications and toxicity studies
  • Hierarchical organization
  • Optical spectroscopy
