Symposium  /  9.11.2017  -  10.11.2017

Particle-Based Materials Symposium

Scope

Particles deposited as films, embedded in matrices, aligned in fibers, and all other particle-based materials are covered by this symposium. A strong focus will be on material properties that can be achieved using particles and would be hard to obtain using other approaches. Anisotropic, complex particles, and supraparticles that bring functionality to materials are of particular interest. The goal is to bring together scientists from different communities that all share the goal of creating functionality in materials using particles.

Topics

  • Preparation of functional materials using nano-particles
  • Assembly, arrangement, alignment and patterning of particles in films and bulk materials
  • Anisotropic particles and supraparticles and their use in materials
  • Particle synthesis for materials via gas phase, liquid dispersion, or in situ formation

Contributions (oral and poster) from researchers at all levels are highly appreciated. Slots for oral contributions will be distributed on the basis of the originality of the research, the level of results indicated in the abstract, and the relevance for the field of particle-based materials.
