Day 5 Tursday, September 26,
The Symposium will integrate both basic and applied interdisciplinary research that is centered on Boron, Borides and Related Materials.
Oral and poster contributions are invited in the following areas:
¨ Preparation of New Materials (single crystals, thin films, nanomaterials, ceramics, coatings, glasses, composites, biopolymers etc.) in normal and extreme conditions (super-high pressure, ultracentrifuging, microgravity).
¨ Crystal Structure and Chemical Bonding (nonstoichiometry, defects, clusters, quantum-chemical calculations).
¨ Physical and Chemical Properties
(band structure, phonon spectra, superconductivity, optical, electrical, magnetic, emissive, mechanical properties, phase diagrams, thermodynamics, catalytic activity etc.) in a wide range of temperature and pressure.
¨ Applications and Prospects
(memory elements, thermoelectric converters, composites, ceramics, coatings, biomedicine etc.)
Plenary lectures and Focused Session are planned. English will be the Symposium language.
