25-29 апреля 2022 года во Владивостоке под эгидой Института автоматизации и процессов управления Дальневосточного отделения Российской академии наук и Дальневосточного федерального университета состоялась Шестая Азиатская школа-конференция по физике и технологии наноструктурированных материалов (ASCO-Nanomat 2022). ASCO-NANOMAT 2022 задумывался как форум для ученых и технологов из азиатских и европейских университетов, академических институтов и промышленных предприятий, где они могут представить свои последние открытия и развить новые синергетические связи в области физики и технологии наноструктурированных материалов и смежных дисциплин.

Vladivostok is a Russian city in the Far Eastern region, geographically close to Asian countries: China, Japan, Korea, India, Taiwan, Australia and others. Therefore, the primary goal of this School-Conference is to stimulate multidisciplinary contacts and cooperation between scientists from Asia and Europe. Russia acts here as a bridge connecting two parts of the world. The second goal is to give young scientists an opportunity to deliver their presentations in an international conference, with awards for the best oral or poster report to motivate them.

The conference was held in hybrid format, both on-site and online. The live sessions were held at the FEFU campus, attended by 56 participants from Vladivostok and 35 from other cities, including foreign students. The rest of the contributors from Russia and from abroad participated in an online format due to coronovirus restrictions. The School-Conference has been deemed a success achieving all of its goal. Due to a large number of reports, the conference was simultaneously held in two halls. Overall, 9 plenary, 17 invited, 59 oral and 125 poster reports have been presented (on-site and online) by the participants, including renowned professors, young scientists and post-graduate students from 13 Asian and European countries, including Russian Federation. The ASCO-Nanomat 2022 is a multidisciplinary school-conference, which has been held for the sixth time, and had six scientific sections:

  • Physics of nanostructures and interfaces, self-organization processes, two-dimensional materials
  • Physics of semiconducting nanostructures and heterostructures, including silicide, Group-IV alloy materials, A3B5 and A2B6 heterostructures: experiment, calculations and technology
  • Ferromagnetic and ferroelectric materials, including nanomaterials, a spintronics
  • Nanostructured coverages, nanocomposites, functional hybrid materials: formation, structure and properties
  • Laser nanofabrication, all-dielectric materials, nanomaterials: fundamentals and applications
  • Photonic and electronic devices: integrated circuits, solar cells, nanophotonics, biophotonics

Abstracts of all reports were published electronically by Dalnauka publishing house.

At the end of the conference, 8 young scientists (under 35 years old) were awarded prizes for the best oral and poster presentations. After the conference, the on-site participants visited an open-air zoo 60 km from Vladivostok.

The Publishing Committee and International Program Committee have selected 43 unpublished articles, which were recommended for publication in St. Petersburg Polytechnic University Journal: Physics and Mathematics as selected Proceedings.

We, the International Program Committee, are very pleased to publish selected articles of ASCO-NANOMAT 2022 for scientists, researchers and students with interest in the physics and technology of nanostructured materials.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all authors, plenary and invited lectors, the Organizing Committee and International Program Committee members for their contributions to the conference.
