Dr. Catherine Dendrinou-Samara is Professor and Director of Inorganic Chemistry Lab., Faculty of Chemistry, Aristotle Univ. of Thessaloniki, GREECE. She obtained her PhD thesis in 1992 from Aristotle Univ. of Thessaloniki while she was visiting Researcher at Inorganic Chemistry Lab of Freie Universitaet Berlin and The Manchester University, UK. Her research interest are on synthesis and characterization of a variety of inorganic compounds and materials ranging from mononuclear complexes to polynuclear one and farther to nanoscale particles that permits to investigate magnetic properties and biomedical applications. She works on controlled synthesis through wet chemical approach of magnetic spinel ferrite nanoparticles for Imaging Diagnostics (MRI) and Therapeutics (Drug carriers, Hyperthermia); Bioactivity of Cu-based nanoparticles and Bimettallic nanostructures. She has an h-index of 30 for 80 indexed publications, with >2600 citations(Scopus).
N2 - The atomic-level characterization and synthesis of Ni nanoparticles in alumina matrix were discussed. In the alumina matrix, the single domain magnetic nickel nanocrystals were embedded using pulsed-laser deposition. Scanning tunneling electron microscopy with atomic number contrast in conjunction with electron energy loss spectroscopy were used for structural characterization at the atomic level. It was found that the Ni nanoparticles were well separated and have interfaces with the host matrix that were atomically sharp and free of oxide layer.

Dr. Shah Mohd Ashraf after completing doctorial studies in Condensed Matter Physics, was appointed as Assistant Professor in National Institute of Technology Srinagar in year 1999. Here, Shah embarked upon new research programme, pioneered the synthesis of broad range of nanomaterials and established World Bank Funded Research Centre (Special Centre for Nanosciences) and laid the foundations to learn the new sciences-Nanotechnology in early twenties. In year 2009, shah moved to Middle East on deputation for a short period of two years and published book titled, "Principles of Nanoscience & Nanotechnology" with Dr. T. Ahmad, an eminent Chemist. Dr. Shah is teaching Nanotechnology, Materials Science and Materials Characterization from the last two decades and is actively engaged as reviewer /editor of many scientific journals. Shah has authored more than 75 international peer reviewed scientific papers in National and International journals and has written 5 Books on Nanotechnology and many Book Chapters with reputed international publishers. In his research, he has targeted bio-compatible and energy harvesting nano-materials, which has applications in day to day life. Shah has been awarded two major projects by the Govt of India under Nano-Mission and leadership qualities in taking lead role in innovative programmes have been acknowledged on many occasions. Shah has delivered invited talks in number of international forums. Dr. shah is also a member of many science academies and societies and his work has been cited by number of scientific reporters as well as scientific media. Organiser and Chair of several national and international symposia, schools and conferences which includes 3rd Int. Conference on "Nanotechnology for Better living" from 25-29 May 2016 in collaboration with IIT Kanpur. In his spare time, Dr. Shah is regularly organising INSPIRE internship programme launched by Hon’ble Prime Minister of India for the bright and genius students of the Kashmir Valley, which aims to attract talented students for the study of Science and Technology in early age which ultimately will bring peace across the globe.

The control of oxide thin films by various physical or chemical methods, coupled with advanced characterization tools, modelling, and theoretical understanding of properties, are prerequisites for further development of new high performance oxide-based materials. A special focus on the relationship between the structure and the properties of oxide thin films whatever the growth method will be addressed for the development of materials with novel or substantially improved properties. Applications related to renewable energy, spin-electronics, multiferroic and transparent electronics are meaningful illustrations of what can be expected from research on oxides. At the same time, for a sustainable development, low cost / easy use deposition methods are required, with reduced processing temperatures, solvent use and the avoidance of polluting and toxic agents. Moreover, the substitution or reduction of critical raw elements in oxides will be emphasized in this edition of symposium. Miniaturization or integration is known to strongly influence the intrinsic properties of oxides. In this respect, the effects of strains, interfaces, defects, composition and doping must be fully understood at the local scale as well as at the macroscopic level. The emerging new class of materials, self-assembled epitaxial oxide composite films in which very high-quality mesoscopic structures can be created, will be addressed together with already established synthesis and structuring of oxide nanotubes, nanopillars, clusters, nanoparticles for nanoscience and nanotechnology.
