Call for

This conference will highlight state of the art and emerging nano-bio materials and devices and their role in the development of new security and defence systems. The aim is to review materials and device R&D, in progress, in both Europe and the USA, based on nano-bio materials technologies for photonic, electronic and optoelectronic applications and to promote closer collaboration and awareness of common objectives and potential advances. It will also seek to bring together researchers from different materials science, physics, chemistry, biology and engineering areas. The conference should be of interest to research scientists and engineers, project managers, senior scientific staff, materials producers and device manufacturers in Europe and the USA.

Papers should focus on short technology reviews or recent results of new materials processes and devices, with particular application to security and defence technologies. The materials and devices may be based on nano-, bio- and metamaterials-based technologies including inorganics, organics, biopolymers, and hybrids as well as devices that take advantage of these materials technologies. Papers may address practical, theoretical and modeling aspects of the subject. Fields of study will include:

  • organic, inorganic and hybrid-based photonics and optoelectronics
  • organic inorganic and hybrid-based laser and amplifier materials
  • smart materials, systems and devices for sensing and diagnostic
  • organic and inorganic-based photodetectors
  • organic and inorganic-based displays
  • nanophotonic and nano-optoelectronics structures
  • photonic bandgap materials
  • biomolecular recognition materials
  • biopolymer-based photonics
  • biotronics
  • biomaterials
  • plasmonic structures and applications
  • metamaterials and metamaterials-based devices
  • nonlinear optical materials and devices
  • predictive modeling of materials parameters for specific applications
  • electroluminescent materials and devices
  • photorefractive and photochromic materials and processes
  • polymer optical waveguides and fibres
  • multiphoton processes
  • charge transport in organic materials
  • simulation of physical processes in molecular media
  • organic materials for night vision and border control
  • biopolymers for display and camouflage
  • biolasers
  • electrospinning
  • organic field effect transistors.
