Oxide Thin Films for Advanced Energy and Information Applications

Materials Chemistry of Thin Film Oxides

13 Jul 14 - 16 Jul 14

Bloomingdale, Chicago, USA

Synopsis

Key Sessions

  1. Nanoionics
  2. Batteries
  3. Ferroelectrics
  4. Thermoelectrics
  5. Fuel cells 
  6. Nanoelectronics
  7. Multiferroics
  8. Solar and Fuel Cells
  9. Oxide Thin films 


Oxide thin films are finding applications in a wide range of energy and information technologies, from ion conductors through photovoltaics and thermoelectrics to dielectrics, multiferroics and capacitors. Each of these technologies requires a thorough understanding of the materials chemistry of the oxide film and its interactions with the environment, substrate etc. Whilst in each technology area there may be materials differences, much of the materials chemistry optimisation may be common. For example, common families of oxides are employed, ABO3 perovskites in particular, and in this there are areas where discussion between user communities can prove mutually beneficial. It is the purpose of this meeting to foster an exchange of ideas between the relevant energy and information themes with the overall aim of provoking extensive discussion of the advances that materials chemistry can make in thin film applications.

We are delighted to be able to offer attendees of this conference the opportunity to submit their abstracts and papers for an online web collection with the Journal of Materials Chemistry A and C. The Journals of Materials Chemistry A and C are weekly journals in the materials field. The journals are interdisciplinary, publishing work of international significance on all aspects of materials chemistry related to energy and sustainability (Journal of Materials Chemistry A) and optical, magnetic and electronic devices (Journal of Materials Chemistry C). Both journals publish original research that demonstrates novelty and advance, either in the chemistry used to produce materials or in the properties/applications of the materials produced.
