#559 - Properties and Characterization of Nanocomposites (08F04)
This session welcomes papers that investigate structure-property relationships in nanocomposite materials, relevant for a wide range of applications from packaging to energy and biomedical hybrids. We seek contributions that study the effect of nano-scale structural features on mechanical, thermal, electrical, optical, and other physical properties, as well as papers specifically focusing on innovative characterization techniques that probe the multi-dimensional structure of nanocomposites and/or one of more aspects of the relationships.
