Session Abstract

Many of the most pressing problems of our civilization, technological ones in particular, are due to the limits of the materials that are available now. Materials science and engineering are usually defined as the design and discovery of new materials, particularly solids. Thus, breakthroughs in materials science are likely to affect the future of the mankind. As quantum crystallography methods supply more accurate and precise results than routine approaches, QC and materials science is a very promising match. QC allows for a deeper understanding properties (mechanical, chemical, physical, electrical, optical, magnetic, etc), functions and performance of materials at the atomic and molecular level (structure-properties relationships). This MS will cover contributions containing applications of Quantum Crystallography methods mostly in solid state chemistry and physics including crystal engineering but also in geology, ceramics, metallurgy, biomaterials and other fields.
