Agenda to be Posted

Speaker Name


List coming soon


On behalf of the University of Cincinnati, the University of Dayton Research Institute, and the Air Force Research Laboratory, we welcome you to the University of Dayton and the 2020 Nanotechnology Materials and Devices (NMD) Workshop. It is an honor to host this workshop in the evolving field of nanotechnology and its industrialization. We are also very proud to be presenting a lineup of distinguished speakers who will be traveling across the United States and from around the world to describe their latest nanotechnology research. The University of Cincinnati, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and University of Dayton Research Institute welcome you to the 2020 NMD Workshop.

There will be a welcome dinner held Sunday evening, a networking dinner and poster session on Monday after the presentations, and a tour Tuesday afternoon at the conclusion of the workshop. This website contains information about the workshop, the University of Dayton Research Institute and the greater Dayton area attractions. If you have any questions prior to or during the workshop, please feel free to ask one of the staff or student assistants , or contact the organizers via email (info@nmdworkshop.org). It is our goal to make this workshop as enjoyable and educational as possible. Thank you and enjoy the workshop!


This intensive single track workshop consists of invited talks and laboratory tours. The workshop covers the synthesis, functionalization, characterization, modeling, post processing, and application of carbon nanostructured materials and devices. The goal of the workshop is to benchmark the current state of the art and develop plans to make breakthroughs in engineering materials and devices based on nanotechnology. The electronic, thermal, and mechanical properties of carbon nanotubes and spun thread are of particular interest. Applications of nanotechnology and industry needs will be discussed along with strategies for commercializing nanotechnology.

The workshop will provide opportunities to establish cooperative research and to intersect different ideas in order to break down barriers in nanotechnology. There is no individual registration fee. We ask that no confidential information be presented at the workshop. There is no taping or recording of the presentations. To register for the workshop, please complete the online registration form. The workshop is held this year at the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI). The NMD Workshop is internationally attended by the leaders and experts in the nano field and continues to grow.
