Synopsis

Nanotechnology takes manufacturing to the molecular level. Research in this area is opening new fields of development and applications in many areas: materials science (nanostructured materials), medicine, biotechnology, manufacturing, computing, information technology and communications.

As research progresses, nanomaterials with improved functionality will be created. This symposium focuses on the synthesis and development of novel materials that will be the foundation for new generations of nanoelectronics products and devices. It is coordinated with the symposia in the “Electronics & Microsystems” track.

This is also the home of our “novel nanostructured materials” session. If you have developed a unique nanostructured material that falls outside the scope of other symposia in the “Advanced Materials” track we invite you to submit your abstract in this topic area.
