4th Intelligent Materials 2019 │ Kiel, Germany
*** Call for abstracts ***
Intelligent materials integrate novel functionalities into materials. Examples include self-responsive materials, switchable materials and biofunctional materials, to name a few. In the biomedical context such materials are highly relevant, starting from biomagnetic sensing to brain implants. If intelligent materials are used in devices they can often be made more energy efficient and autonomous. Also in sensor and actuator systems intelligent materials can lead to significantly increased sensitivity.
Such intelligent materials typically have complex internal structures: they can be composites of different material classes such as multiferroics or hybrid materials; they might be nanostructured or hierarchically built-up; they could be bioinspired and possess functional elements ranging from single molecules to the macroscale; they might have adaptive properties and thus become self-responsive.
All those materials and their design and development have to be accompanied by high-resolution analytical tools that are able to characterize the materials on all scales and, moreover, track and reveal their function-structure relations in situ or in operando.
Abstracts are solicited on the basic principles, modelling and simulation, synthesis, characterization, and applications of intelligent materials, especially of:
• smart materials (piezoelectrics, magnetostrictors, shape memory alloys),
• multiferroic materials and composites,
• multifunctional materials and composites,
• memristive materials,
• biofunctional materials,
• bioinspired materials
• biohybrid materials.
