High pressure technology for nano-materials

Warsaw, 7 - 10 Sept. 2005

Scope of the High Pressure School:

  • Application of high pressure for consolidation and production of nano-crystalline materials
  • Modelling the structure of nanomaterials and mechanisms of their deformation
  • Nanocrystalisation
  • Characterisation of nanomaterials

Special topics:

  • Nanostructured metals obtained by heavy plastic deformation
  • Sintering nanocrystaline ceramics and composites
  • Synthesis of nanopowders

Special Session:

  • Working out the roadmap for the technology of nanostructured metalls and alloys with perspective 2015 (for more details, please, click here)

Who should attend:
Early stage researchers and advanced scientists aiming at extending their knowledge in the main fields covered by the symposium.

How HPS'6 is organised:

HPS'6 is part of the EMRS Fall Meeting. It is held in the building of the Warsaw University of Technology. Participants of HPS'6 will have access to 8 other symposia, poster session, and plenary lectures. Visits to labs of the Institute of High Pressure Physics is also foreseen.
