The scope of the conference
Materials science of novel ceramics, metals, polymers, organic compounds, nanotechnology, advanced surfaces. For example:
- novel high-performance soft, hard, and hybrid smart materials
- photovoltaic energy conversion with polymeric solar cells
- reduced friction in engines
- efficient light sources
- new materials for scalable electrical energy storage in a low-carbon economy is addressed by utilization of renewable biopolymers
- modeling and data-driven design of advanced materials
With a support from a Strategic area grant provided by the Swedish government, Linkoping University has established an International interdisciplinary laboratory for Advanced Functional Materials (AFM).
AFM consists of 240 researchers who work together in interactive teams. We envision that science focused on the atomic/molecular scale design of new materials will provide solutions to broadly-based societal issues, including work opportunities, health, energy, environment, and sustainability.
More information on the Strategic research area “Advanced Functional Materials”, including staff active within, please visit our AFM web page at Linköping University.
