Tuesday, 24 May 2005: 1:20 PM-5:35 PM

Room 204 (Science & Engineering Resource Center)

Nano and Materials Science (NANO)

Surface and Interface Science II

Surface chemistry is central to a wide variety of industrial technological advances, such as cleaning, passivation and growth on semiconductor surfaces for micro- and opto-electronics, chemical tailoring of surfaces for the catalysis industry, and chemical functionalization for the sensor industry. This symposium will highlight work addressing fundamental issues in these areas.
