   Horizontals

V9H1 : Structural Materials

Structural Materials– relating primarily to mechanical properties – include high entropy alloys, structural ceramics, composites, etc. Although these are explored for various structural applications such as next generation superalloys, ultra-high temperature ceramics, thermal barrier coatings, etc., several technological challenges yet remain in this field. Magnetic and electronic materials play prominent roles in numerous ways in the advancement of industrial and scientific growth, and are invariably used in power generation and transmission, electronic appliances, data storage, sensors and actuators, spintronics, etc. The horizontal is divided into following subtopics –

(i) High Performance Alloys

(ii) High Performance Ceramics and Composites

(iii) Magnetic & Electronic Materials


V9H2: Material Recycling & Purification

Materials Recycling & Purification is an area with enormous growth potential. It addresses sustainability and circular economy while paving way for new business opportunities to a large number of enterprises. It is more relevant in today’s context when supply chain of metals needed for strategic sectors is disrupted. With the fixed deposits of metals constantly depleted from the earth’s crust, there is an inevitable demand for extraction of critical metals needed for defence, mobility, energy and electronic sector. Consequently, there is surge of interest in developing new technologies and processing tools for recycling materials. In addition, purification of materials (7N grade) is also a very critical research area and 7N grade ultrapure metals are used in various optoelectronic applications such as solar cells, imaging devices, electro-optic modulators etc. due to their sensitivity to X-rays, gamma rays, UV Visible and IR radiations. Ternary semiconductor alloys also have found applications in the sphere of medical imaging devices and detector applications. The horizontal is divided into following subtopics –

(i) Material Recycling

(ii) Material Purification & High Purity Materials


V9H3 : Advanced and Functional Materials

Advanced & Functional materials are a class of materials possessing intrinsic properties which can be controlled using external stimuli such as temperature, electric/magnetic field, light and pressure making them useful for a large variety of modern day technological applications, e.g. information technology, optoelectronics, solar energy harvesting, medical diagnostics, etc. These materials have unique abilities to perform associated physical functions such as electrical, optical, magnetic response, etc. under predetermined stimuli or a chemical function such as catalysis. In addition, semiconductor materials & device processing is a field that forms the backbone of the country's economy as it touches every sector of importance such as electronics, IT, communication, automobile, health care etc. The era of wide bandgap and ultra wide bandgap semiconductor materials like Galluim Nitride, Silicon Carbide, & Gallium Oxide presents various challenges for device design and processing due to attributed difficult material characteristics alongwith attractive properties for high power and high frequency applications. To make India a world leader in the area of electronics & semiconductor technology, advanced materials and devices have to be particularly focused on to fill up the technological gaps and raise good Fablines, infrastructure & industry in the country. The horizontal is divided into following subtopics:

(i) Advanced Materials

(ii) Functional Materials

(iii) Semiconductor Materials & Device Processing


V9H4 : Catalytic Materials and Processes

Catalytic Materials are inextricable materials, which influence sustenance and sophistication of human life. Nearly seventy percent of the chemical processes carried out are essentially promoted by catalytic materials, which have revolutionized the outlook of various industries such as fertilizer, pharmaceutical, petroleum, electronics, polymers, etc. The general area of catalysis has continually been at the forefront of research in chemical and physical sciences with at least fifteen Nobel prizes awarded for developments thus far. In the last two decades alone, there have been at least 4 prizes for process developments (2001, 2005, 2010) and for understanding how the surfaces of catalytic materials promote chemical transformations (2007). With ever-growing environmental concerns, there is an incessant quest to transform chemical processing technologies and carry out chemical processes in operationally simpler ways with high efficiency, excellent mass balance and economization of energy. Unrelenting need for drugs and escalating demand for materials with hyphenated properties necessitate catalytic materials with superlative physicochemical attributes. Explosive chemical sciences research in the past few years has led to emergence of new dimensions in catalysis. Development novel catalytic materials for chemical industry and exploitation of inexpensive and earth-­abundant elements for sustainable catalytic processes lie at the centre stage of contemporary chemical research. Efficient catalytic protocols for energy conversion and storage remain a challenge with opportunities for breakthroughs.


V9H5 : Computational Materials Sciencees

Computational materials science has risen into prominence with computational tools augmenting the discovery of new materials, prediction of novel properties and phenomena, elucidation of structure-property relationships, etc. by way of theoretical algorithms, modeling, simulations and informatics. Today, materials science has emerged as a truly interdisciplinary subject spanning the physics and chemistry of materials, computational design, engineering applications and industrial manufacturing processes. It offers a level playing field for researchers from different specialties utilizing their varied expertise. Materials science is central to the development of nanotechnology, quantum computing, energy research, nuclear fusion, as well as in medical technologies like prosthetics and biomaterials
