NANOSCALE OXIDES SYSTEMS IN PHYSICS AND CHEMISTRY
ORGANISED BY THE SPANISH VACUUM SOCIETY on BEHALF OF IUVSTA
Nanoscale oxide systems ranging from ultrathin films to two-dimensional layers and oxide nanoparticles (nanorods) are ubiquitous in fundamental condensed matter research and a plethora of possible applications in cutting edge technologies are emerging. Nanoscale oxides differ from their respective bulk materials due to an increased surface-to-volume ratio, due to proximity effects and due to their nanoscale spatial confinement, which all conspire to create novel physical and chemical properties. The presence of interfaces adds yet another degree of freedom in oxide nano-systems leading to the appearance of multifunctional behavior. The synthesis and fabrication of nanoscale oxide materials is still a challenge and their characterization to understand the tunability of functionalities that evolve due to their nanostructured nature provides another facet of challenge.
In this workshop, we will examine and discuss transformative research in the area of oxide nano-systems. Issues of synthesis, characterization of structure as well as of emergent physical and chemical phenomena will be at the focus of this workshop.
The workshop will assemble leading experts in the field to discuss the present state of the art and future opportunities in the area of nano-oxides, with special emphasis on the exchange of ideas between experimental and theoretical approaches. Emerging applications of nano-oxides in various fields of nanotechnology will provide another focus of the workshop.
The IUVSTA 86 workshop will take place in Ávila in the Hotel Reina Isabel from 1-6 July 2018.
