Abstract:

The Institute covered a broad spectrum of topics from the disciplines of physics, chemistry, biology and materials science that comprise the developing field of nanophase materials. The nature of nanophase materials and the fundamental criteria for their synthesis were elucidated. The various types of nanostructured materials share three features atomic domains grains or phases spatially confined to less than nm, significant atom fractions associated with interfacial environments, and interactions between their constituent domains. Thus, nanostructured materials include zero-dimensionality atom clusters and cluster assemblies, one- and two-dimensionally modulated multilayers and overlayers, respectively, and their three-dimensional analogues, nanophase materials.
