Complex multifunctional nano structured materials with peculiar and specially designed electrical, magnetic, electro chemical, bioresponsive and structural properties resulting from bio inspired processing routes are stimulating growing research as they involve such diverse areas as molecular recognition and self assembly, self healing, hierarchical patterning, biotemplating and microorganisms-mediated materials synthesis.
Covered by this Session, that follows the ones on the same topics held in previous CIMTEC Conferences, will be topics ranging from the biomolecular- directed growth and microstructure pattern formation of ceramic meso/nanostructures in bulk and thick/thin film, organic-ceramic composites and hybrids, ceramic-metal heterostructures to their embodying with special functionalities for a number of potential applications in, e.g., high performance light-weight structures, efficient biosensing materials and catalysts, improved biomedical materials with stimuli-adaptive, self-assembly and self-repairing properties and in electronic, optical and photonic devices.
