Special Symposium

Most technology-relevant scientific projects include advanced characterization at the nanoscale level. This symposium targets a wide range of nanoscale characterization techniques including microscopy, scattering, spectroscopy/spectrometry, nanomechanical and other tools, along with specimen preparation methods and handling. It is essential that this burgeoning knowledge base be transparently presented to the broad nanotechnology community. NSTI will use this event to promote the rapid education, dissemination, and commercialization of new characterization techniques into industries based in both physical and life sciences. The symposium seeks to introduce general technique types to newcomers, report pioneering methods, and drill down into new physical understandings, all the while emphasizing applications useful to industrial engineers and technicians.

Advances in characterization include not only far-field probes (e.g., beams of electrons, ions, neutrons or photons) and near-field probes (indentors, nanotips, fibers and nanotubes), but also a growing intellectual component whereby data are manipulated, analyzed, rendered and simulated to yield meaningful information. As some tools and methods have become more common and practical, certain misunderstandings and misinterpretations also have crept into the lexicon. Beside an element of “methods training” to promote the insightful application of characterization tools in nanotechnology R&D, this symposium will emphasize projects that utilize a broad spectrum of complementary techniques to yield meaningful findings.

Topics & Application Areas

Online abstract submissions are now being accepted. Proposed topics include, but are not be limited to:

  • Direct space imaging methods
    Dedicated session to: TEM, SEM, AFM, near-field optical, X-ray microscopy, topography and tomography, spatially resolved ion mass spectrometry, depth profiling with ions…
