In the last few years there has been a strong interest in one-dimensional nanostructures based on carbon, i.e. carbon nanotubes (CNT). Devices such as field effect transistors, biosensors, and most recently IR light emitting diodes (LED), have been demonstrated. CNTs are considered a leading candidate for replacing conventional CMOS electronics and are finding applications in bulk form as well.

Concurrently, there is a growing group of researchers in the nanotechnology community who are studying inorganic nanowires, rods, tubes, and related nanoscale structures. This area of Inorganic Nanowires is of great scientific and technological interest because by synthesizing semiconductor (e.g. Si, GaN, etc.), dielectric (e.g. SiO2), or metallic (e.g. Ni, Pt) nanowires, the level of functionality in future nanosystems may be greatly enhanced. It is now possible to also synthesize stoichiometrically complex oxides, nitride, and carbides that exhibit more exotic properties. Such additions to the “tool-box” of available 1D nanomaterials may open opportunities for novel devices and applications.

To date devices and components such as field effect transistors, decoders, inverters, UV sensors, LEDs, lasers, chemical sensors, and biosensors based on inorganic nanowires have been demonstrated. It is clear from the literature that both the synthesis of such nanostructures and their integration into larger scale systems must be addressed by the research community if they are to have a broad technologic impact.

This symposium will address the synthesis, physical properties (experimental and theoretical studies), device integration, and applications of inorganic nanowires. Researchers in the field are invited to submit abstracts for either poster or oral presentations during this symposium by November 19, 2004.
