#NCFun23 - Fundamental Processes in Nanocrystals and 2D Materials

Description of topical focus

By virtue of their size, morphology, and surface effects, nanoscale crystals offer new dimensions of control over material properties. The synthesis, investigation, and utilization of nanoscale crystals lie at the interface between chemistry, physics, materials science, and engineering. Learning to control the electronic and reactivity properties of nanoscale crystals involves novel synthesis of structures, heterostructures, shapes, and agglomerates, and/or assemblies. Additionally, deliberate control of nanomaterial surface chemistry offers additional pathways to improved functionality.

The NCFUN23 symposium will bring together leading scientists in the field to discuss their latest discoveries in the form, function, and application of nanoscale materials.
