Symposium on Nano-engineered coatings, surfaces, and interfaces.
19-ago - 24-ago
Through this email we’d like to let you know that we are organizing a symposium dedicated to Nano-engineered coatings, surfaces, and interfaces.
The latter will be organized in the frame of the International Materials Research Congress (IMRC), 19 – 24 August 2018, to be held in Cancun (Mexico).
More information about the symposium can be found here : http://www.mrs-mexico.org.mx/imrc2018/symposium-A5
This symposium aims at bringing together academics and industrialists and to be a forum for providing an overview of the field of nano-engineered surfaces and interface where information and expertise on cutting-edge research and technology are disseminated.
Topics of interest are related to thin film materials self-organized at the nanoscale such as functional thin films, multilayered systems, nanolaminates, and nanostructured coatings and surfaces.
The symposium aims at giving insights on the structure – property relationships of nano-engineered surfaces and interfaces modified by ion- and plasma-based techniques such as i) Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) processes, even carried out at atmospheric pressure, and ii) Physical Vapor Deposition (PVD) methods such as cathodic arc, ion-beam assisted deposition and implantation and plasma nitriding, hollow cathodes, magnetron sputtering, pulsed laser deposition, and all their variants.
Both experimental and theoretical works will be considered.
The deadline for online abstract submission is March 15.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Cancun !
