          Nanotechnology Instrumentaion Workshop

Co-organizer: LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science

Venue: The workshop will be held on March 14th from 9 am to noon at the Memorial Union, La Paz room, #242 (16th floor). If you plan to attend only the workshop, please, register on-line at the NGC2014 conference web site by indicating one day attendance in the comment box. The flat daily fee ($200) includes also the NGC2014 sessions attendance and social and networking events scheduled for that day.

Lunch and tour of the LeRoy Eyring Center for Solid State Science on March 13 from 12 pm to 2:00 pm. Interested participants should sign up at the registration desk

The mission of instrumentation for nanotechnology is to enable scientists, engineers, and developers to conduct atomic and nanoscale research by creating a toolset for all research areas. Nanotechnology tools designers and manufacturers shall maintain a global perspective by taking into consideration the needs for cutting edge academic research, industrial R&D, and student studies. A perspective based on modularity allows a university or industrial lab to start with a cost-effective core product and build up to a powerful multi-user research center that bridges the world of imaging with the world of chemical, structural and optical analysis.

The nanoinstrumentation workshop invites presentations which cover the following topics:

  • Aberration Corrected Electron Microscopy
  • Atomic Force Microscopy
  • Chemical Vapor Deposition
  • Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy
  • Electron Microprobe
  • Ellipsometry
  • Focused Electron Beam Systems
  • Laser Ablation technique
  • Magnetron Deposition
  • Molecular Beam Epitaxy
  • Nano and Micro Electromechanical Sensor based technique
  • Focused Ion Beam Systems
  • Profilometry
  • Raman Spectroscopy and Tip-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering
  • Rutherford Backscattering
  • Scanning Electronic Microscopy
  • Scanning Near-field Optical Microscopy
  • Scanning Probe Microscopy
  • Scanning Tunneling Microscopy
  • Transmission Electron Microscopy
  • Ultra-High Vacuum technique
  • X-Ray Diffraction and Topography

Workshop participants who want to make presentations shall contact Jeffrey Luth. Workshop participants without presentations should register as regular NGC2014 participants and are most welcome to present their innovations at the conference exhibition and to join the meeting sponsors.
