2A. The Role of Surfaces and Interfaces in Materials Processing

Surfaces and interfaces are widely recognized as key elements in materials processes of primary importance in the health, energy, electronics, and environmental sectors. This symposium addresses the role of surfaces and interfaces in several of these applications, bringing together scientists from different backgrounds to foster multidisciplinary interactions.

Topics will include:

This symposium will address the most advanced science and engineering challenges in the following fields (but will not be limited to):

• Plasma-based processes for surface modification
• Advanced techniques for surface and interface characterization
• Radio-frequency glow discharge reactor for medical applications
• Physical modifications of surfaces for biotechnology applications
• Role of surfaces and interfaces in catalysis
• Model catalytic reactions on planar substrates
• Advanced processes for synthesis of catalytic materials (plasma-based processes, PVD, etc.)
• Catalytic microreactors and their applications, including environment (treatment of pollutant) and chemistry (synthesis)
• Advanced processes for microfluidic applications
• Role of surfaces and interfaces in electronic devices
• Friction at surfaces

A tutorial complementing this symposium is planned.
