In the framework of EUROMAT 2021 conference which will take place 12- 16 September 2021 in Graz, Austria, the Chair of the EsSENce, Costas Charitidis, as well as the Leader of WG6, Spyros Diplas, are organizing two sessions D4 entitled “Characterization of 1D and 2D materials” and D1 “Advanced Microscopy in Materials Research Description”, respectively.
Currently studied 1D/2D materials including nanotubes, nanowires, nanorods, graphene family materials, as well as transition metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), transitional metal carbides and carbonitrides (MXenes) are of great interest because of their unique electrical, optical and mechanical properties. Because of the need of manufacturing and scale up production of nanomaterials, the development of in-situ characterization techniques for 1D/2D materials is essential, in order to provide direct feedback for process control especially during material growth. given that the choice of the most appropriate characterization method may be limited, therefore combinatorial characterization approach is needed.

On the other hand, microscopy directly probes the structure of materials and has accelerated their development from lab-scale to the manufacturing level, so contributing to scientific progress, technological developments, and societal welfare for many decades. Recent developments include the use of diffractive imaging methods; three dimensional, rather than solely two-dimensional imaging and analysis, empowered by the development of highly sensitive detectors and cameras, automated data collection and data processing methods.

Deadline of abstract submission (300 words): January 31, 2021
It will be a great chance for our EsSENce network to have an important presence in EUROMAT 2021!
