A call for abstracts for the TMS (The Minerals, Metals, and Materials Society) 2022 Symposium:


Plasmonics in Nanocomposite Materials 2022

Plasmonic nanocomposites and are an emerging class of materials that integrate the most widely utilized building blocks, namely metallic nanoparticles as a plasmonic component, with an assortment of other similar/dissimilar nanostructures leading to new multifunctional systems with improved functionalities and properties that offer enormous potential for new applications.

This symposium will cover the recent achievements in the design, fabrication, and application of plasmonic nanocomposites in different fields of science including material science, medicine, and industry, and it will cover their significant impact on global society. We expect to have sessions that focus on the design and development of nanoparticle-based materials that have applications ranging from sensing, and optics to bio-diagnostic and therapeutic implications.

Functional Nanomaterials: Functional Low-Dimensional (0D, 1D, 2D) Materials 2022

Low-dimensional (0D, 1D, 2D) materials are a broad class of materials with emergent properties originating from their reduced physical dimensions and (sub)nanoscale structures and morphologies. These low-dimensional materials offer exciting new opportunities for innovations in the technological frontiers critical for the sustainable future advancement of society, such as nano-optoelectronics, sustainable energy, high-performance sensors, and advanced environmental and healthcare technologies. The 2022 Symposium on Functional Nanomaterials will address all aspects of low-dimensional nanomaterials, encompassing: two-dimensional (2D) nanofilms, nanosheets, and monolayers, one-dimensional (1D) nanofibers, nanotubes, and nanowires, zero dimensional (0D) nanoparticles and quantum dots, as well as their hierarchical assemblies, heterostructures, frameworks, and organic-inorganic hybrids.
