Advanced Materials for Photonics and Electronics: Fundamentals and Applications (#308)

Material science is making serious inroads throughout photonics and electronics. Such advances are essentially driven by technological developments in processing techniques, nanoscale fabrication and composition of inorganic, organic and polymer materials.

This symposium will cover all the aspects related to electronics and photonics materials including theory, modelling, and practical approaches for the fabrication of devices such as optical waveguides, planar integrated circuits, organic laser tip, organic photovoltaic devices, organic and inorganic metamaterials, etc. A particular emphasis will be given to the techniques employed for the nano-structuration like Directed Self Assembly (DSA), Complementary Metal Oxide Semiconductors (CMOS) techniques, sol-gel methods. The behavior of nanostructured materials like quantum dots will also be discussed for their benefits in photonics and electronics technology.

Finally, a one day session will be dedicated to Prof. Tobin J. Marks of Northwestern University on the occasion of his 70th birthday. Prof. Marks has greatly contributed to the dissemination of Materials Chemistry and unconventional opto-electronic devices.
