Materials Science and Engineering (MSE) Symposium

It is anticipated that this symposium will bring together researchers from materials science and engineering to share and discuss their most recent results, further expanding the interest and progress in their areas of research. Therefore, submissions are encouraged covering the wide range of materials science, material characterization and modeling, fabrication, device applications, theory, simulation and material/device characterization in existing and emerging areas of thin-film silicon. Topics will include:

- Electronics materials
- Structural and composite materials
- New materials for optoelectronics and photovoltaic
- Electronic, magnetic and dielectric properties of semiconductor nanoparticles
- Innovations in materials characterization
- Novel methods for directed assembly and printing
- Fundamental studies of mechanical properties of materials near their theoretical strength or melting temperature
- Novel synthesis and processing methods to fabricate organic semiconductors for their applications in displays, lighting and photovoltaics
- Material characterization, modeling, and post-deposition processing: structural, mechanical, electronic and optical characterization and theory; nano characterization, defects and transport
- Fundamental studies of mechanical properties of materials
