P04: Nanocomposites and Nanolaminated Functional Coatings

Belongs to:
TopicP: Processing and Synthesis

This session solicits contributions on the relationships between materials combination, interface structure, microstructure and properties of nanocomposite and nanolaminated functional inorganic coatings. Together with appropriate materials selection, advanced nanostructured coatings can be synthesized from various physical or chemical routes by designing their microstructure and architecture at the nanoscale. The general prospects are to advance functional coatings (nitrides, oxides, metal and semi-conductors) with tailored superlative properties -superhardness, toughness, ultrawear-resistance, increased thermal or chemical stability, radiation tolerance, controlled friction etc. This session emphasizes synthesis, in-depth characterization (e.g., STEM, atom probe tomography, nano-diffraction, design strategies, properties, and applications of such coatings. Papers dealing with atomistic/multiscale modeling of surface/interface properties are also greatly encouraged
