ABOUT THE CONFERENCE
Availability of high quality materials with
a wide range of desired properties is essential for the growth of Science
& Technology. Recent advances in the nano-scale fabrication technology
have given a new impetus to materials & their applications. Materials
science is fastly developing into a multidisciplinary field, where scientists
are engaged in the synthesis and characterization of variety of novel materials
and the investigation of their various properties like chemical, electrical,
optical, mechanical etc. The aim of the present Conference (NCMA-2004)
is, therefore, to cover a wide range of activities from synthesization
to applications of a variety of materials. The conference endeavors to
bring together the scientists, engineers and academia in materials science
research and to derive benefits from each other's experience.
The scientific programme will include the following
a) Nano-Materials & Low - Dimensional Systems
ABSTRACTS & MANUSCRIPTS
Both abstract and the manuscripts should be prepared
using Microsoft Word, typed in single spacing using Times New Roman font
on one side of the A4 size papers.
b) Non-linear Optical Materials
c) Luminescent Materials
d) Semi- and Super-conducting Materials
e) Disordered Materials
f) Ion-Irradiation in Materials
g) Crystals Growth and Characterization
