ConferenceWednesday, July 26, 2017 to Friday, July 28, 2017Aalto University, Finland http://www.nanoenergy.co.uk/ The potential of nanotechnology for energy related applications is enormous. The use of nanomaterials for energy applications can be addressed at almost any scale, from picowatts to megawatt size. Nanomaterials can address many unmet needs in energy applications; they can be used to improve energy densities, efficiencies, increase rates of energy transfer, and increase stabilities for example. Nanotechnology also has the potential to facilitate hitherto underdeveloped or unknown commercial applications for energy (smart clothing, flexible electronics, covert inks, energy scavenging/converting devices) as well as bring down the cost of new energy technologies and enable their mass production. Within the field of nanotechnology, new materials development will play an important role toward a sustainable energy future. The NANOENERGY conference is an offshoot from the more established NANOSMAT conference. Since 2005, “NANOENERGY” has been organized as a “Symposium” each year at the NANOSMAT conferences. As a result of the growing success of the NanoEnergy symposia held during the NANOSMAT conferences – the first ever standalone “International Conference on Nanotechnology, Nanomaterials & Thin Films for Energy Applications” was held at the University College London (UCL) in London, UK during 19-21 February 2014, which was a huge success and with attendance exceeding 200 plus. The 2nd NANOENERGY conference was held in Manchester, UK during 1-3 June 2015 and the 3rd NANOENERGY was held at the University of Liverpool (UK) in July 2016. The 4th NANOENERGY conference will address the theory, design, research, discovery and development of new materials and nanotechnologies in relation to the field of energy applications (e.g. in energy harvesting, production, storage, transfer and use, etc.). NANOENERGY aims to bring together academia, industries and policy makers interested in the application of nanotechnology in the energy sector. The conference will discuss the state-of-the-art and latest development of nanotechnology, nanomaterialsand thin filmsfor energy applications but also investigate possible avenues ahead. High-level experts both from academia and industry will address key issues relating to the topics of this conference. A wide range of disciplines will be included from theory to experiments, device development, technology demonstration, manufacture and scale-up of nanotechnology applied to energy will be covered.

The speaker presents his recent research outcomes in terms of 3D heterogeneous integration accomplished in his laboratory which has been exploring responsive materials, microassembly, and nanomanufacturing technologies. The first part introduces biomimetic engineered reversible dry adhesives made of shape memory polymers. The second part shows how his reversible dry adhesives enable LEGO-like microassemly and nanomaterial integration through transfer printing techniques. Finally, the third part demonstrates the applications of his approaches with the examples not only of devices such as a microtoroid resonator, a tip-tilt-piston micromirror, and a RF MEMS switch, but also of processes such as colloidal quantum dot film patterning and integration. The strategies presented in his talk benefit research activities in smart dry adhesives, 3D MEMS, and nano devices. Biography: Seok Kim received his B.S. from Pohang University of Science and Technology, M.S. from University of California at Los Angeles, and Ph.D. from Carnegie Mellon University, all in mechanical engineering, and joined the faculty at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign in 2011. His current research interests include biomimetic engineered surfaces for reversible dry adhesion and tunable wetting, transfer printing-based microassembly and nanomanufacturing, and 3D MEMS fabrication technologies. He was a recipient of the National Science Foundation CAREER Award in 2014, the ASME Chao and Trigger Young Manufacturing Engineer Award in 2015, and the Young Investigator Grant Award from the Korean–American Scientists and Engineers Association in 2015.
