About the Event. The 5th Annual International Conference on Sensors and Electronic Instrumentation Advances (SEIA' 2019) is a forum for presentation, discussion, and exchange of information and latest research and development results in both theoretical and experimental research in sensors, transducers and their related fields. It brings together researchers, developers, and practitioners from diverse fields including international scientists and engineers from academia, research institutes, and companies to present and discuss the latest results in the field of sensors and measurements. After successful events in 2015 (Dubai, UAE), 2016 (Barcelona, Spain), 2017 (Moscow, Russia), 2018 (Amsterdam, The Netherlands) the SEIA' 2019 will take place on Canary Islands (Tenerife), Spain, 25-27 September 2019.

 

The SEIA conference is focusing any significant breakthrough and innovation in Sensors, Electronics, Measuring Instrumentation and Transducers Engineering Advances and its applications with broadest concept. The conference is organized by the International Frequency Sensor Association (IFSA), a professional association, which celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2019.

 

Next to all the technical subjects, a major function of this series of events lies in the opportunities for meeting colleagues. This aspect of our IFSA event has always been giving high marks and we continue to pay much attention to it. Coffee breaks, welcome cocktail reception and excursions are the best opportunity for social contacts. Finally, the quality of the memorable Gala Dinner, organized on Thursday evening will make your stay on Tenerife into a very pleasant souvenir.

 Bullet 'Nanotechnology and Engineering Nanomaterials: Fundamentals, Knowledge and Applications' - a Pre-Conference Tutorial

 

 

Date: 24 September 2019 (14:00 - 18:00)

 

Overview. The objective of this short course is to provide insight into fundamental understanding as well as diverse range of processes used in the development of the engineering nanomaterials, which finds vast technological applications. The properties of a particular material differ from that of the conventional bulk due to its unique features at nanoscale. Again, these properties differ based on the particle size, morphology and composition. These nanomaterials of unique features have been used for various applications and not limited to colloidal dispersions, nanoemulsions for pharmaceutical purposes, biopolymers, metallic particles, antireflection coatings, sensors for cancer diagnosis, magnetic nanoparticles for medical imaging, energy storage materials to enhance heat transfer, nanoclusters for hydrogen storage, electronanocatalyst for fuel cells, and catalyst for wastewater treatment. The preparation methods of the nanomaterial decide their properties or have proper control on the morphology leading to the required properties of the end products and their subsequent applications.

 

This tutorial will deal with the fundamentals as well as synthesis methods that are most commonly used and the latest methods which are under intense research currently. This course will be beneficial to students of all levels (undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral fellows), professors and young researchers of wide discipline such as physics, chemistry, chemical engineering, energy engineering, material science, environmental engineering, etc. and also industry persons.

 

 

Course outline:

  • Why Nanotechnology ?

  • At the Nanoscale ?

  • Nanomaterials by dimensions

  • Change in the fundamental properties at the nanoscale

  • Quantum confinement

  • Nanomanufacturing

  • Carbon Nanomaterials

Certificate & Gift
