Vertically-aligned nanocomposite epitaxial thin films

Date: February 24, 2021

Time: 12:00PM - 01:30PM

You must be registered to participate!

Over the past two decades, new discoveries and major advances have been made in the synthesis of metal-oxide thin films and understanding their physical properties. Epitaxial vertically aligned nanocomposites (VANs) and their related architectures have shown many intriguing features that are not available from conventional two-dimensional planar multilayers and heterostructures. The February, 2021 issue of MRS Bulletin will discuss the ways in which VANs have become a unique platform to host different types of materials, such as oxide:oxide, oxide:metal, metal:nitride, and nitride:nitride, for achieving various functional and mechanical properties.

This webinar will present three talks with authors from the MRS Bulletin issue. An interactive Q&A will be held with each of the speakers following their talks.

Talk presentations:

  • Tailoring Physical Functionalities of Complex Oxides by Vertically Aligned Nanocomposite Thin-Film Design
    Jijie Huang, Sun Yat-sen University
  • Nanopillar Composite Electrodes for Solar-Driven Water Splitting
    Mikk Lippmaa, University of Tokyo
  • Lithium-based Vertically Aligned Nanocomposites for 3D Solid-State Batteries
    Mark Huijben, University of Twente
