Nanosurfaces 2019

Posted on: 08/02/2019

Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining to host Nanosurfaces 2019 in September 2019 (moved from March)

Nanosurfaces 2019 will take place on 26th September 2019 (note change of date!) at the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining (IOM3) in London. The event will showcase a range of nano-enhanced surface technologies to present the state of the art in physical and chemical surface modification and enhancement. Properties which will be discussed include thermal, optical, electronic, water and gas permeation resistance. KTN is acting as a co-sponsor for the event.

The event provides a great opportunity to discover developments in nano-enabled surface science using physical and chemical surface modification. The focus will be on solving real-world challenges through nanosurfaces, such as invisible waterproofing of electronic devices, functional surfaces for light production and solar energy harvesting, as well as corrosion, wear and antimicrobial resistance, and printed electronics. The event will appeal to a range of industry and academia, including engineering, manufacturing, transport, energy and medical devices. It will also provide a platform for networking and partnering.

The day’s first session will be chaired by Dr. Martin Kemp of the IOM3 Nanomaterials Committee, which will include a keynote from Dr. Angeliki Elina Siokou (P2i Ltd) on ‘Water protection technologies for smartphones and beyond’. The second session will feature presentations from Dr James Dutson (PlasmaQuest) on ‘Enhancement in the reactive deposition process using remote plasma spluttering’, while Dr Alistair Kean (Nika Works Ltd) will discuss ‘A radically new antimicrobial nanosurface formed by plasma processing’.
