Their topics include waste energy harvesting using III-nitride materials, III-nitride nanostructures for inter-sub-band optoelectronics, growing single-crystal aluminum nitride by modified physical vapor transport and properties, III-nitride nano-structures and improving the luminescence efficiency for quantum well light-emitting diodes, fabricating and characterizing green resonant-cavity light-emitting diodes prepared by wafer transfer technologies, and group III-nitride nanostructures for light-emitting devices and beyond.
Optical resonances in nanostructures much smaller than the wavelength of light have attracted a broad attention because they allow operating light in small dimensions, for example, allowing efficient harvesting or confinement at the nanoscale [1].
One-dimensional (1D) nanostructures such as nanotubes, nanorods, nanowires, and nanobelts have attracted great attention because of their unique properties that may be beneficial for photocatalysis: (i) enhanced light absorption due to the high length/diameter ratio, (ii) rapid and long-distance electron transport capability, (iii) large specific surface area, and (iv) ion exchange ability [6].
The next presentation on 'Real Seamless Micro/Nanostructures' from Christoph Stoever of Temicon outlined a new approach to produce seamless micro/ nanostructures on a cylinder.
Nanostructures, including metal nanowires, semiconducting nanowires, carbon nanotubes, and graphene sheets, have been widely used as the building blocks or drug carriers for different applications (such as flexible photoelectronics, e-skins, soft machines, implantable electronics, drug delivery, health monitoring, and tissue engineering).
