Fırat Güder of Albert Ludwigs University of Freiburg, Institute of Microsystems Engineering, Germany, will give a talk titled "Simplified strategies for controlled nanosynthesis: Fundamentals and Applications" on Thursday, 4th of October at 13.40. The room will be announced soon. The abstract is below.
"Although there has been significant progress in large scale growth of 1D nanostructures and thin films, controlled synthesis of porous and hollow nanomaterials and surface functionalized nanostructures still remains a challenging task. In the first part of the presentation, I will show how to produce controlled porous 1D nanostructures and thin films as well as surface functionalized nanostructures using Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) and thermally induced solid-state diffusion. I will demonstrate the use of these structures in optoelectronic and gas sensing applications. In the second part of the presentation, a method combining Near-Field Phase Shift Lithography and low temperature ALD for the fabrication of millimeter long, wafer-scale nanochannels will be introduced. The fabricated nanochannels are then utilized as spatially confined nanoreactors for template assisted nanosynthesis."
