Beilstein Nanotechnology Symposium - Functional Micro- and Nanostructured Surfaces: from Biology to Biomimetics

9 - 11 May 2023, Limburg, Germany

The scope of this conference is to provide an interdisciplinary platform for discussions of novel developments and trends in the field of biological and bio-inspired surfaces. Topics will encompass functional mechanisms as well as the characterization of biological surfaces with different functionalities: adhesion, friction, wear-resistance, wettability, photonics, etc. Based on this knowledge, a further key topic will be the consideration of structural principles in biological systems as potential models for the generation of novel technical surfaces and their implementations into engineering systems.

The following aspects will be covered at the symposium:

/ biological surfaces and physical principles of their functioning

/ technical bio-inspired micro- and nanosctructured surfaces

/ tribological surfaces: adhesion, friction, wear-resistance

/ wettability and self-cleaning

/ photonical surface
