Microstructural Functionality at the Nanoscale Workshop in Venice, Italy

3rd MiFuN in a series

From June 8 to 9, 2023, the workshop “Microstructural Functionality at the Nanoscale” (MiFuN III) will take place in Venice for the third time. The workshop is organized by CENIDE members Prof. Dr. Markus Winterer (UDE) and Prof. Dr. Dietrich Wolf (UDE) and Prof. Dr. Umberto Anselmi-Tamberuni (University of Pavia).

MiFuN II is the third in a series of international workshops on the time dependence of structural features at the nanoscale. It covers recent research topics with strong impact on nanoscience and nanotechnology. Mechanisms for microstructural evolution range from the formation of defects, their transport, growth and transformation, to segregation, sintering and cooperative mechanisms including the controlled manipulation of grain boundaries and other microstructural elements in nanocrystalline materials. These mechanisms can lead to novel dynamic functionality, such as resistive switching or self-healing and are also determining the lifetime of nanostructured devices such as batteries or solar cells.
