Symposium C

Advanced Applications of Ion Beams: Enabling a New Technology Era

The symposium brings together physicists, materials scientists and those who are interested in emerging application of ion beams. These applications include quantum computing and sensing by deterministic ion implantation and nano patterning of advanced materials such as graphene and other 2D materials. The focus of the conference is on the materials science involving both basic ion-solid interaction processes and property changes occurring either during or subsequent to ion bombardment and ion beam processing in relation to materials, biomaterials and device applications.

  • Ion beam nanoimaging of materials and defects
