Nanomaterials for Energy

19-20 mars 2024
THALES site in Saclay - Palaiseau (France)

GDR NAME and THALES RT are collaborating to organize a joint 2-day event focused on "Nanomaterials for Energy Applications." The imperative of the energy transition and broader environmental concerns related to global warming necessitate significant research efforts. These endeavors aim to discover, propose, and develop novel materials and devices with disruptive properties and functionalities. Over the past two decades, research in the field of nanomaterial science has revealed the remarkable potential and adaptability of nanoscale systems. These systems can yield new and revolutionary properties, stemming from the enhancement and/or emergence of specific phenomena at the nanoscale that alter the transport of energy carriers. Such phenomena include collective and cooperative behaviors, tunnelling, coherence, filtering, fluctuations, localization, etc. An extensive range of nanomaterial geometries, encompassing both established and innovative forms (such as core-shell nanowires, superlattices of significant order, 2D materials, and 3D architectured nanomaterials, along with defect engineering), offers opportunities to fine-tune material physical properties. This, in turn, facilitates the development of purpose-fit disruptive materials and devices tailored for energy applications. The joint GDR-NAME & Thales RT event provides an ideal platform to showcase recent advancements in nanoscience and nanotechnology addressing urgent energy and environmental challenges. Participants will have the opportunity to explore future trajectories in nanomaterial development, and the event serves as a catalyst for inspiring new initiatives and activities in the fields of nanomaterials, energy, and environmental science.
