1B. Nanostructured Carbon Materials for MEMS/NEMS and Nano-Electronics

The purpose of this symposium is to bring together experts from academia, national laboratories, and industries to discuss the latest developments in the synthesis and characterization of nanostructured carbon materials, which are specifically geared towards the development of advanced micro/nanosystems and nanoelectronic devices.

The materials of interest include nano-/ultranano-crystalline diamond, carbon nanotubes, and graphene. The exceptional physical, chemical, biomedical, mechanical, electrical, thermal, and optical properties offered by these materials are promising for the development of high-performance MEMS/NEMS and nanoelectronic devices in various technologically important areas. This symposium will include topics covering fundamental studies on synthesis, characterization, and new properties; theoretical and modeling studies to understand structure-property relationship; issues related to fabrication and integration; as well as success stories about the transition of particular technologies from the laboratory to industry.

This symposium is expected to provide an excellent platform for scientists and engineers to exchange ideas, foster collaborations, and embark upon new challenges.

Symposium topics will include:

• Advances in growth, processing, and characterization (nano/ultrananocrystalline diamond, CNT, and graphene)
• Surfaces and interfaces in MEMS and NEMS: surface chemistry and tribology
• Device fabrication and processing: advances and issues
• Advances in lithography and patterning
• Carbon nanoelectronic devices
• Materials integration and multiscale interactions
• Biological, chemical sensing, and biomedical applications
• Nanomechanical testing and properties
• Nanostructured carbon materials for space application
• From laboratory to industry: commercial success stories
