The Radiation Effects on Materials Focus Topic is organized by young investigators within AVS to highlight cutting-edge research related to the interaction of various types of radiation with materials and surfaces. The umbrella term “radiation” is used broadly; contributions are welcome from any place on the electromagnetic spectrum. There will be three sessions that focus on: using radiation to functionalize and/or decontaminate materials/surfaces with biological applications, effects of radiation on materials in space environments and returning to Earth, and using radiation as a tool to gain insight into the properties of materials and materials processing. Poster submissions are also encouraged within this focus topic.
