2018 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: 2018 Symposium on Functional Nanomaterials: Discovery and Integration of Nanomaterials: Organized by Stephen McDonnell; Chang-Yong Nam; Lanxia Cheng; Dong Lin; Wenda Tan

Nanomaterials are a class of materials with morphology, properties, and structure or performance dominated by phenomena attributed to the “nano” length scale (<100 nm). These materials enable new opportunities for future technological innovation, because they exhibit novel mechanical, biological, electrical, optical, and magnetic properties that are absent in their bulk counterparts. The 2018 Functional Nanomaterials symposium will include the discovery and synthesis of novel nanomaterials while addressing the integration of conventional nanomaterials into functional architectures. Both conventional nanomaterials sessions and focused sessions will be held. Topics of interest for conventional nanomaterials sessions include, but are not limited to: -Synthesis, characterization, and device applications of nanomaterials including nanoparticles, nanowires, nanoribbons, carbon based nanomaterials, thin films, quantum dots, etc. -Use of nanomaterials in electronic, optic (photonic), magnetic, biological, mechanical, thermal management, catalysis, sensing, energy harvesting/storage/conversion or other scientific applications -Nanoscale modeling studies

2016 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Interface-driven Phenomena in Solids: Thermodynamics, Kinetics and Chemistry: Organized by Fadi Abdeljawad; Stephen Foiles; Timofey Frolov; Emine Gulsoy; Heather Murdoch; Mitra Taheri

The key to the future development of increasingly complex materials systems in the solid state is a detailed understanding of interfaces. In particular, the significance of internal (grain and phase) boundaries as well as free surfaces becomes more dominant in technological applications where a reduction of system size or scale of microstructure is desired to optimize properties. The scope of this symposium is to bring together researchers across a wide range of disciplines including theoretical, experimental, modeling and characterization in order to communicate recent developments pertaining to interface-dominated processes in solids and discuss the future of the field. Topics for this symposium include, but are not limited to * Thermodynamics and chemistry, i.e., segregation, adsorption, phase transformation, energies. * Kinetics; morphological and re-construction processes, such as grain growth, coarsening, faceting, etc. * Local interface structure (structure-property relationships) This symposium seeks to understand, characterize and predict the above processes with the aid of the following tools * Experimental assessment and observation of interface evolution in response to various external stimuli (thermal, stress, electrochemistry, etc.) * Atomic-scale calculations of local interface structure and associated properties (energy, mobility, etc.) * Mesoscale modeling and computational thermodynamics of processes driven by interfaces. * Characterization techniques to probe interfacial properties (atomic structure, chemical composition, etc.) and their relation to material properties at the macroscale. * Development of processing techniques to obtain and control experimental production of desired interfaces (grain boundary engineering, deformation twinning, etc.)

2016 TMS Annual Meeting & Exhibition: Nanostructured Materials for Nuclear Applications: Organized by Cheng Sun; Michael Demkowicz; Amit Misra; Osman Anderoglu; Khalid Hattar

A paramount challenge in the development of advanced nuclear reactors is to discover advanced materials that can operate reliably in extreme service conditions, i.e. under high-dose neutron irradiation at high temperatures and in corrosive environments. Nanostructured materials with a high volume fraction of buried interfaces are believed to have improved resistance to irradiation. Thus, there is an increasing need to understand how interfacial structures mitigate radiation-induced damage and to design stable nanostructured materials that can survive in severe irradiation conditions. The aim of this symposium is to provide a forum for the discussion of irradiation response of nanostructured materials and the stability of the corresponding interfacial structures. Presentations on experimental, theoretical, and modeling research are solicited. Topic areas for this symposium include, but are not limited to: 1.Processing, characterization, and testing of nanostructured nuclear materials. 2.Radiation damage of nano-structured metals, ceramics, and composites. 3.Radiation response of nanowire, nanoparticles, and nanoporous solids. 4.Effect of local interface chemistry on radiation response and properties. 5.Nano-mechanical measurements of irradiated materials. 6.The effects of surfaces, grain boundaries, and phase boundaries on radiation response.
