Dear Colleagues,

the next MFA Seminar takes place on

*** Thursday, 2nd November 2006, 11:00
at the
MTA MFA Tanácsterem
(KFKI Campus, Bldg. 26, 1st Floor)

Our guest speaker is:

*** Prof. Nitin P. Padture
Department of Materials Science and Engineering
Ohio State University

The title of the talk:

*** Novel Concepts in 1-D, 2-D, and 3-D Nanomaterials
*** for Functional and Structural Applications

Further information follows below.

As always, we welcome everyone interested!

Zoltán Hajnal



Advanced nanomaterials and nanoscale phenomena are technology-enabling
in both functional and structural applications. The
nanomaterials-related research in my research group encompasses both
these areas, and it is organized according to dimensionality — 1-D, 2-D,
and 3-D. In 1-D nanomaterials, an overview will be presented of our
research in the areas of synthesis, characterization, devices, and
properties (electrical, chemical-sensing) of oxide nanowires and
metal-oxide-metal heterojunction nanowires. In 2-D nanomaterials, I
will present work on synthesis, structure, and properties of
transparent-conducting oxide thin films and patterned ferroelectric thin
films. Finally, I will present recent results from research on novel
processing of 3-D nanoceramics and ceramic/single-wall carbon nanotube
composites that exhibit some unusual grain-boundary structures and
mechanical properties in contact loading (indentation, tribology).

Biographical Sketch

Prof. Nitin P. Padture received a B.Tech. from Indian Institute of
Technology (1985), a M.S. from Alfred University (1987), and a Ph.D.
from Lehigh University (1991). He served on the University of
Connecticut faculty, before joining the Ohio State University as
Professor in January 2005. Prof. Padture is the author or co-author of
over 100 publications, including 2 papers in Science, 1 paper in Nature
Materials, and 3 patents. His papers have been cited over 1,900 times,
and 6 of his papers have 100+ citations (ISI). He has presented over 80
invited talks in the US and abroad. Prof. Padture is a Fellow of the
American Ceramic Society, and he received that Society’s Roland B. Snow
award (1990) and Robert L. Coble award for Young Scholars (1999). He
also received the Young Investigator award from the US Office of Naval
Research (1996). Prof. Padture is a Principal Editor of Journal of
Materials Research and an Associate Editor of Journal of the American
Ceramic Society.
