Hybrid Atomic-Scale Interface Design for Materials Functionality covers a broad range of atomistic, meso and macro scale computational methodologies, including multiphase (hybrid) materials constructs for tailoring structural, thermal and electrical properties. As future materials are expected to perform with increasing efficiency in complex and dynamic environments hybrid materials design, in contrast to monolithic concepts, they are a cost-effective alternative. Taking materials hybridization at smaller scale, even at atomic scale, offers exceedingly high-payoff opportunities for optimizing materials functionality at reduced material consumption and even reduced qualification costs (eliminates many costly component and system level qualification tests).

Ajit K. Roy AFRL/RXAN Principal Materials Research Engineer, Wright-Patterson AFB, OH, USA. Dr. Roy has over 30 year experience and research expertise in materials modelling & processing of structural, electronic and thermal properties of 3D porous nanostructure, 3D composites, carbon foam, and carbon-carbon composites. His current research activity encompasses experimentally validated nano materials design for tailoring electrical, thermal, and mechanical properties with emphasis on atomic scale hybrid materials design for tailored materials response. Prior to AFRL, he was affiliated with the University of Dayton Research Institute (UDRI) for 10 years. His current research focus is in multifunctional materials, laser-materials interaction, strain resilient electronics, energy transport in nanomaterials, behaviour and failure mechanism in nano materials and hybrid graphitic (carbon) foam. He has published over 250 articles in journals and proceedings, numerous invited lectures, and co-authored three book chapters on thermal materials and composites, of over 13,500 citations (h-index of 52). He serves in various panels, advisory boards, and editorial board in journals. He served in the Executive committee of French-US-Japan Carbon-Carbon Meeting to foster research collaboration in carbon-carbon composites between U.S. and French scientists. He served as Chair of Aerospace Division (over 6000 member) of ASME, Chair of ASME NEES (Nano Engineering for Energy and Sustainment), Member of the Executive Committee of ASC, Adjunct faculty appointment with five US universities, and served in several graduate student thesis committees. He is Fellow of AFRL, AIAA, ASME, and ASC (American Society for Composites).
