Materials Advances is delighted to introduce a special online collection on ‘Shaping the future using thin films and nanotechnology‘, featuring contributions from the 1st International Conference on Thin Films and Nanotechnology: Knowledge, Leadership and Commercialisation (ICTN-KLC).

The ICTN-KLC conference was organised by the alumni of Thin Film Laboratory, Department of Physics, Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IITD), India to take forward the legacy of Padma Shri Prof. K.L. Chopra in motivating and nurturing young students to become dedicated scientists, leaders and entrepreneurs for paying back to the society via scientific discoveries, development of path breaking technologies, and commercialization.

Articles in the collection are published in Materials Advances so they are all open access and freely available.
