Surfaces control commercially relevant materials properties and device performance: adhesion, wettability, electrostatic behavior, lubrication, drag, corrosion resistance, fouling, bio-compatibility, durability, etc. Innovations in design, production and control of micro/nanostructured surfaces may enable new and improved product feature and device performance that are not accessible from bulk material properties. This symposium highlights exciting research and development work on surfaces, coatings and membranes made of metals, polymers, organics, oxides, and composites.
