Most technological research includes advanced characterization at the nanoscale. This event promotes the rapid education, dissemination, and commercialization of new characterization techniques into industries based in both physical and life sciences. It seeks to introduce general technique types to newcomers, report pioneering methods, and drill down into new physical understandings, all the while addressing 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. Besides an element of “methods training” to promote the insightful application of characterization tools in nanotechnology R&D, this symposium will emphasize projects utilizing a spectrum of complementary techniques.

In 2013, this symposium will feature a special session on “the importance of characterization to technology”. The purpose of this session is to engage stakeholders at every stage in the course of technology development so that they can know and ultimately understand the value and limitations of nanoscale characterization. This will include discussion of devices and industries using nanoscale characterization, nanoscale materials and properties central to technology, failure analysis, scale up issues, product testing, testing standards, among others.
