Two decades of active research on self-assembly has delivered materials with unprecedented nanoscale structures in both two and three dimensions. In early work, the focus was primarily on the nanostructure of the self-assembled materials; however, as commercialization interests are increasing, the focus is increasing on the physical and chemical properties of these structures and proof-of-concept devices.
The current state of the field, as covered in the October, 2020 issue of MRS Bulletin, suggests that self-assembly is making significant strides toward application in nanoelectronics, photonics, energy storage, chemical separations, and as a path to form complex structures.
This webinar will expand on the MRS Bulletin issue with talks from leading experts in the field. Each talk will be followed by a Q&A session with the speaker.
