7th International Conference on Diffusion in Solids and Liquids (DSL-2011) - Algarve, Portugal - June 26-30, 2011

This Special Session will cover all aspects of nano-structured carbon and oxide-based materials. Possible topics include synthesis and characterization of oxide-based and carbon-based namely, carbon nanotubes (CNTs), carbon nano-fibres, carbon nano-composite, diamond-like carbon, etc. may be presented. Metal oxide, namely ZnO, TiO2, Fe2O3, ferrites, garnets, etc for various applications like solar cell, LED , FET, sensor, antenna, catalysis, battery, lubricant, can also be presented. Modeling and simulation of the carbon- and oxide-based nano-structured materials are highly welcome.

The topics included (but not limited to) in this session are as follows:

  • Synthesis, characterization and application of carbón nanotubes (CNTs) and nano-structured carbon materials.
  • Synthesis, characterization and application of nano-structured oxide, composite materials and thin films.
  • Modeling and simulation of carbon and oxide nano-structured materials.
  • Nano-structured magnetic, optic, dielectric materials and their applications.
  • Nano-structured materials for electro-chemical energy.

Invited Speakers

The following presentations were given by invited speakers.


This Special Session was organized in part by Professor Gregory Kozlowski from Wright State University.
