Symposium U

Materials and Devices for Harsh Environment

Basic and applied research on innovative materials and device development in three interdisciplinary themes:

1. Defence
• Protective materials/structures;
• Camouflage materials;
• High energy laser materials;
• High speed dynamic impact;
• High temperature environment.

2. Aerospace
• Light weight, high strength composites;
• Heat and corrosion effects;
• Materials fatigue;
• High power devices.

3. Space
• Coatings for space environment;
• Radiation effects on electronics;
• Low vacuum (outgassing) effects;
• Thermal management.

  • Light weight, high energy absorbance materials and composites;
  • Shape memory materials (SMA/SMP/SMC);
  • Nanomaterials and nano-reinforced composites (e.g. CNT, graphene, nanofibers);
  • Advanced ceramics and coatings (high temperatures, anti-oxidation, anti-corrosion);
  • Intelligent/smart materials;
  • Self-healing materials;
  • Additive manufacturing for material and devices;
  • Materials for mitigating ionizing radiation, high-energy laser & nucleation threat;
  • Ruggedized electronic materials and devices;
  • Environmentally-assisted materials degradation and failure (e.g. corrosion, impact, thermal shock, low vacuum);
  • Nanomechanical behavior of materials;
  • Reliability, physics and chemistry behind material failure;
  • Radiation and single event effects;
  • Computational and analytical modeling.
