Speech Title: 2-D nanostructures for sensor applications
Abstract: Two types of ordered nanoparticle systems (linearly arranged nanoparticles in 1- D periodic structures either 2-D nanometer structures of nanoparticles) as potential building blocks for optical sensors or catalytic applications will be presented exploring both top-down and bottom-up approaches. In the top - down approach, reactive magnetron sputtering (high-power impulse magnetron sputtering mode-HIPIMS) of silver target was used to deposit thin films of diamond like carbon (DLC) nanocomposites including silver nanoparticles. Analysis of optical and electrical properties of thin DLC based silver nanocomposites (DLC:Ag) as well as effects of thermal treatment will be shortly presented. Structuring features of the nanocomposites using reactive ion sputtering combined with nanoimprint lithography or femtosecond laser irradiation was used to produce 1-D or 2-D submicron structures of DLC:Ag.

Speech Title: Synergistic effect of thermodynamics and kinetics of phase transformation in nonequilibrium metallic materials and its applications
Abstract: By phase transformation, hot processing decides structure and property of metallic materials. With developing the hot processing technology, an originally independency between thermodynamics and kinetics controlling the phase transformation is replaced by a currently strong thermo-kinetic correlation. Traditional theories basing on the independency cannot deal with processes basing on the correlation. This key problem brings a big challenge and a precious opportunity for non-equilibrium phase transformation. Hencely, we proposed a philosophy of thermo-kinetic synergistic effect, built up a series of theories, new regulations and mechanisms for complex systems, and made a breakthrough in key technologies.

Speech Title: Solving Corrosion Problems on Coal-to-Chemical Gasification Systems and Waste-to-Energy Boilers
Abstract: Coal-to-chemical conversion based on the Lurgi-type gasification systems are a long-established approach to the exploitation of fossil fuel reserves, very often for strategic National benefit. However, in certain instances, extreme corrosion attack may occur on the thick-walled gasifier vessels and/or in the downstream processing systems.
Similarly, waste-to-energy combustion equipment has been a popular and profitable approach to the utilization of waste streams to produce high-grade heat and electricity. Unfortunately, such boilers also can sustain unexpectedly high rates of corrosion attack that results in frequent unscheduled downtime, a requirement for replacement disposal capacity and lost revenue.
This paper considers the underlying causes of such damage and describes successful approaches that have been employed to investigate and overcome these issues.

Prof. Xin Yao
Distinguished Professor of Yangtze River Scholar, Ministry of Education of China,
School of Physics and Astronomy, Shanghai Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, China

Biography : Prof. X. Yao, from Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ., got his Bachelor and Master degrees in Dept. Mater. Sci. and Eng., of Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ., and got hisPh.D. at Univ. of Liverpool, in. 1993. He was a research scientist at ISTEC(International Superconductivity Technology Center) in Japan (1993-2001). During work at ISTEC, he has grown the world record, large-sized REBCO single crystals. In his new lab at Shanghai Jiao Tong Univ (from 2002), he has extended the growth of REBCO crystals to the bulks and LPE films, focusing his interests on the phase formation and the growth mode in various RE-Ba-Cu-O systems.

Speech Title: Superheating property of REBa2Cu3O7-x thin film and its applications in the growth of REBa2Cu3O7-x superconductors
Abstract: Recently, we reported a superheating phenomenon of REBCO (RE=Nd, Sm, Y) thin films, e.g. the complete decomposition of a c-oriented YBCO film occurs at a temperature of 50 K higher than its peritectic temperature (Tp). The origins and influential factors of superheating property were investigated, involving film oriented structures, substrate materials, and phase diagram natures.
On the other hand, for fundamental study and practical application, the film-seeded growth of REBCO superconductors has been conducted in our lab by Top-Seeded Solution-Growth, Top-Seeded Melt-Growth, and Liquid Phase Epitaxy. Making full use of their unique superheating property, we employed REBCO films as universal seed materials to induce the growth of 1) high-performance & high Tp REBCO crystals, such as NdBCO and SmBCO, 2) large-sized crystals, 3) recycling failed bulks.

Speech Title: Comprehensive Strength Optimization of Spacecraft and Orbital Station Components: Outlook of Ukrainian State-of-the-Art and Off-Shelf Designs
Abstract: The current state of spacecraft development worldwide implies a rejection of earlier achievements like US Spaceshuttles and Russian Proton/Progress launchers. Meanwhile, even older developments in Mir and SkyLab orbital stations return to focus in new lunar projects. The overinflated prices of NASA (US) and Roskosmos (Russia) can no longer withstand the competition with aggressive commercial players like Space X, Arianespace, etc. At this transition period, niche players with decades of experience in the spacecraft development, like Ukraine, become instrumental for larger countries, like China, with ambitious space projects.
