Participants focus on fabrication of highly-coherent and highly-ordered three-dimensional nanostructures (3-D nanostructures), and subsequent hybridization with sensors, biomaterials, engineered nanoparticles, nanoribbons, and responsive polymers. Surface properties are investigated and modified to study and influence chemisorption or physisorption processes.
