International Workshop on Multifunctional Energy/Nano Materials (MENM2020)

February 10, 2020, Fukuoka, Japan

Workshop Photos


The first International Workshop on Multifunctional Energy/Nano Materials (MENM2020) will be held in Fukuoka, Japan on February 10, 2020. In this workshop, we will exchange information and views on nanomaterials and energy materials with advanced multifunctional properties. The topics we discuss in the workshop include mechanical/structural properties, hydrogen-related properties, catalytic/photocatalytic properties and electrical/electronic properties of metallic, non-metallic and organic materials. In particular, we will focus on high-entropy alloys and on the significance of severe plastic deformation, grain refinement, phase transformations and lattice defects on various properties. Any related talks including processing, characterization and applications are also welcome.
