Low-dimensional material systems possessing at least one of their dimensions in the nanometer scale offer intriguing physical properties and undiscovered pathways toward revolutionary new device concepts for flexible and transparent electronics, quantum computing and other advanced applications. Controlled fabrication of quantum dots, nanowires and ultra-thin films result in building blocks that reveal a wealth of interesting physical properties. Control of thermodynamics and kinetics in synthesis and processing at the nanometer scale offers unprecedented opportunities to tailor microscopic and macroscopic physical properties of such material systems. To further pursue this tremendous opportunities, many fundamental questions need to be addressed and technological barriers need to be overcome. This conference provides a forum for the presentation and discussion of synthesis, processing and characterization of low-dimensional material systems tailored at the nanometer scale. The scope of the conference also includes unique and peculiar physical properties exhibited by such materials. Design, fabrication, and characterization of novel device platforms that employ low-dimensional material systems are also of interest, as well as interfacing and integration of such devices toward novel electronics, photonics, sensors, and energy conversion and storage.
Topics of interest include:
synthesis of zero-dimensional material systems (e.g., core-shell nanoparticles, quantum dots) and their device integration
synthesis of one-dimensional material systems (e.g., nanowires and nanorods), control of their orientation and morphology, and device integration
templated, catalyzed and uncatalyzed, tip assisted, field induced, locally heated synthesis methods of low-dimensional materials
self-limiting deposition technique such as atomic layer deposition (ALD) that can produce ultrathin and conformal thin film structures for many applications including thin film devices, display technology, energy storage and capture, as well as solid state lighting
role of strain and extended defects on synthesis and spatial ordering of nanoscale structures and on their optical and transport properties
introduction of electrically/optically active impurities and their roles in low-dimensional structures; dopant spatial distributions and segregation
electrical contact formation and interface properties between nanoscale structures and metal contacts
nanoscale synthesis compatible to and integral onto CMOS devices; scalable and mass-manufacturable interfacing for electronics, photonics, optoelectronics, sensing and energy conversion
3D heterogeneous integration, application of advanced patterning techniques for positioning and dimension control of nanostructures, integration with MEMS
heterogeneous interface characteristics, DC, RF and high frequency characterization, defects, noise, traps, coherent- incoherent structures: mechanical, acoustic, magnetic, and multiferroic properties
physical characteristics of nanometer-scale structures analyzed individually and in ensembles, ex-situ and in-situ studies
novel electrical, optical, mechanical and structural characterization techniques for the low-dimensional structures and device platforms.
