This is a topical session for a cross disciplinary field of engineering, biology, and medicine, including bio-inspired design, biomaterials, bioengineered cell systems, biological sensing and analysis, sterilization and disinfection, and surface and plasma technologies for biological and medical applications.

Data-driven materials science and process informatics

Related divisions: JVSS-Annual meeting (JVSS-AM), Nanometer Structures (NS), Applied Surface Science (ASS), Electronic Materials and Processing (EMP) and Plasma Science and Technologies (PST)

This topic focuses on the rapidly evolving data-driven research, jointed with four divisions, Nano Science(NS), Applied Surface Science(ASS), Electronic Materials and Processing (EMP), Plasma Science and Technologies (PST), and JVSS Annual Meeting(JVSS-AM). Papers regarding the wide range of materials and process informatics including experiments, computation, processing, and analysis are welcome. Infrastructures for the data-driven research (equipment, database, and software) are also in the range of interest.

Advanced light spectroscopy

Recent developments of synchrotron-light and laser spectroscopy have been utilized for various research fields of material science and technology. In this focused session, following five topics using advanced light are highlighted; polarization modulation spectroscopy, operando spectroscopy, spectroscopic imaging, high-resolution inner-shell spectroscopy and time-resolved spectroscopy.


Related divisions: Nanometer Structures (NS) and ICSPM

Nano-optics and photonics are important key enabling technologies in the 21st century. Here, included topics are super-resolution imaging and spectroscopy, nanoprobes with optical technologies, ultrafast and/or nonlinear nanoimaging/spectroscopy, nano-optical lithography and diagnostics, nano-plasmonic, bio-sensing, nanoscale threshold-less lasing, and so on.

Low-dimensional Quantum Materials

Related divisions: Nanometer Structures (NS), Applied Surface Science (ASS) and Surface Science (SS)

Sessions of Low-dimensional Quantum Materials include a wide range of topics such as two-dimensional materials represented by graphene, topological materials, one-dimensional wires structures and other quantum structures, and also their device applications and advanced measurements of the quantum properties.

Non-Evaporable Getter Coating

Related divisions: Vacuum Science and Technology (VST) and Surface Science (SS)

Non-Evaporable Getter (NEG) coating is a vacuum technology that utilizes inner walls of a vacuum device as a getter pump. It also reduces gas desorption and electron emission under irradiation of photons or electrons and thus has been widely applied to particle accelerators since its invention by CERN in late 1990s. Larger use of a well-established NEG technology for particle accelerators is expected to impact broad fields, such as synchrotron radiation instruments, electron microscopes, semiconductor processing equipments, MEMS devices and atomic clocks. Fundamental studies to understand and improve the NEG film properties have also been conducted worldwide from the aspects of the vacuum technology and surface science.

Science and Technologies for SDGs

Related divisions: Plasma Science and Technologies (PST), Applied Surface Science (ASS), and JVSS-Annual meeting (JVSS-AM)

Emerging technologies for, e.g., carbon sequestration, hydrogen storage, energy harvesting materials/devices, and nitrogen cycling in agriculture, to name a few, are expected to contribute significantly to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). In this session, we shall discuss all science and technologies aiming at achieving the SDGs that are of interest to the IUVSTA community. The latest development of well-established fields such as photovoltaics, fuel cells, batteries, biomass is also discussed in this session.

Vacuum Vision 2030

While Digital Transformation (DX) and Green Transformation (GX) become more important, the evolution of semiconductors play an important role in the evaluation. To support the evolution of semiconductors, vacuum components have continuously met the demand for the technical requirements. In this session, technologists with deep knowledge of the semiconductor industry will explain the vital relationship between semiconductors and vacuum components, future challenges for vacuum components and the roadmap for 2030. We hope that everyone finds information to lead business and academic developments through lively discussions.

Division Topics

Division Topics are classified into 13 divisions, each of which will be organized by the corresponding program subcommittee.

*Topics of JVSS-AM are merged into other topics. Thus, when submitting your abstract, select the corresponding topic from other divisions or focus topics.
