5th International Workshop on Nanoscale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology

Ohio University, USA, 2008.

The International Workshop on Nanoscale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology is a biannual meeting series to share the information on latest research advances of science and technology in the nanometer regime. The scope includes (but is not limited to) electronic, optical, magnetic, mechanical and transport properties of nanoscale systems, and nanoscale devices as well as nanomanipulation. Previous workshops were held in Trieste, Italy (NSS-1, 2000), Tokyo, Japan (NSS-2, 2002), Washington D.C., USA (NSS-3, 2004), and Rathen, Germany (NSS-4, 2006).

Topics include:

  • Molecular Machines and Devices
  • Fullerenes and Nanotubes
  • Nanostructures on surfaces
  • Self organized nanostructures
  • Semiconductor quantum dots
  • Thin films
  • Molecular Spintronics and Electronics
  • Magnetic Nanostructures
  • Nanosensors
  • Nanocatalysts
  • Nanobiotechnology
  • Nanomaterials for Energy Conversion

Topics include these techniques:

  • Atomic and Molecular Manipulations
  • Microspectroscopy using focused photon beams (laser, synchrotron radiation, etc)
  • Spectromicroscopy using imaging devices (PEEM, LEEM, TEM, X-ray microscopy, holography, etc)
  • Optical scanning near field techniques (SNOM, THz , etc)
  • Scanning probe techniques (STM, AFM, SNOM, etc)
  • Transport measurements
  • Information about this workshop will be updated regularly. Please visit again soon.
