Track : Materials Characterization and Imaging

The track category is the heading under which your abstract will be reviewed and later published in the conference printed matters if accepted. During the submission process, you will be asked to select one track category for your abstract.

Materials Characterization and Imaging

Most technological research includes advanced material characterization needs. This event promotes rapid education, dissemination, and commercialization of new characterization techniques into industries based in both physical and life sciences. It seeks to introduce general technique types to newcomers, report pioneering methods, and drill down into new physical understandings, all the while addressing applications useful to industrial engineers and technicians. As can be seen by the list of topics below, all major characterization capabilities are covered including microscopy (electron, optical, scanning probe), spectroscopy, x-ray based methods and hybrid techniques.Advances in characterization include not only far-field probes (e.g., beams of electrons, ions, neutrons or photons) and near-field probes (indentors, nanotips, fibers and nanotubes), but also a growing intellectual component whereby data are manipulated, analyzed, rendered and simulated to yield meaningful information.
