Thrust Session: EMERGING DEVELOPMENTS IN NANOTECHNOLOGY & NANOENGINEERING: In recent years, there has been tremendous progress in the synthesis and fabrication of a wide range of nanoengineered materials with tunable atomic composition and properties. In this session, some of the applications of such materials for electronics/sensors, smart matter and energy generation/harvesting will be discussed while examining their potency for near-term commercialization.
