This symposium aims to give a brief overview of characterization techniques of 1D, 2D
materials, 1D/2D heterostructures, various ceramics and their composites. The multi-scale
characterization from the atomic to nanoscale dimensions is of great interest as it is
becoming more important in understanding the synthesis and performance of 1D/2D
materials including nanotubes, nanowires, nanorods, graphene family materials, transition
metal dichalcogenides (TMDs), transitional metal carbides and carbonitrides (MXenes) as
well as advanced ceramic and their composites.
The synthetic route of nanomaterials often determines the shape and size of the
nanostructures, consequently the properties of those materials are affected. Because of the
need of manufacture and scale up production of nanomaterials, the development of in-situ
characterization techniques for 1D/2D materials is essential, in order to provide direct
feedback for process control especially during material growth. The fabrication of hybrid
nanomaterials consisting of 1D and 2D heterostructures has led to the development of
novel applications such as Circuits transistors, Optoelectronic Devices, Memory Devices,
Sensors, Energy Harvesting and Storage Devices. While structural characterization is
important, 1D/ 2D heterostructures exhibit a large number of novel properties such as
magnetism, piezoelectrical, electrical transport, optical, photonic properties and thermal
conduction. As a result, the challenges in characterization of 1D/2D heterostructures
should be addressed.
Recent advances to understand, control and design of advanced ceramics and composites
at the nanoscale have been achieved, but the long-term mechanical reliability remains a
critical issue for successful applications in different industrial areas. Ceramics and ceramic
matrix composites are candidates for many applications that involve high temperatures,
chemical reactivity or mechanical stresses. In recent years, a number of oxide and non-oxide
ceramics have been investigated for use in harsh industrial environments. The materials of
interest comprise a wide range of ceramics including conventional oxide ceramics such as
alumina and zirconia to more specialized compositions such as borides, carbides, and
nitrides. The materials of interest can be monolithic, single phase ceramics, porous
materials, multi-phase particulate or 1D/2D nanoparticle reinforced ceramic matrices or
composites. This symposium will provide advanced analytical and computational tools to
establish constitutive models for complex loading conditions, in-situ studies and nondestructive
testing, and newly alternative approaches for characterization of the 1D/2D
materials, advanced ceramics and composites.
