Plasma-Based Synthesis, Processing and Characterization of Materials for Energy and Environment


Plasma process is a key technology for synthesis of functional nanomaterials, which can evolve into industrial fabrication platforms for energy and environment. In addition to a variety of conventional plasma processes, much attention has been paid to novel plasma technologies including atmospheric-pressure non-thermal plasmas, which have been actively studied for applications to surface modifications and ultra-high-rate fabrication of functional nanomaterials. Major objective of this session is to provide an interdisciplinary forum for scientists and engineers in research areas including plasma technologies and nanomaterials to enhance discussions on latest achievements and challenges on the frontier of plasma-based synthesis, processing and characterization of materials.
