International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology Set for Dec 4-9 in Hawaii

by Editor1 last modified January 23, 2011 - 14:31

The third International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology conference will be held Dec. 4-9 in Kaanapali, on the Hawaiian island of Maui. The 2011 ISANN event brings together the series of New Phenomena in Mesoscopic Structures (NPMS) and the series of Surfaces and Interfaces of Mesoscopic Devices (SIMD).

International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology Set for Dec 4-9 in Hawaii

ISANN's 2011 conference on nanodevices and nanotechnology is set for December 2011 in Hawaii.



Scope of the ISANN 2011 Conference


This year's ISANN agenda will span nano-fabrication through complex phase coherent mesoscopic systems including nano-transistors and nano-scale characterization. Topics of interest include:
  • Nano-scale fabrication (high-resolution electron lithography, FIB nano-patterning SFM lithography, SFM stimulated growth, novel patterning, nano-imprint lithography, special etching, and SAMs)
  • Nano-characterization (SFM characterization, BEEM, optical studies of nanostructures, tunneling, properties of discrete impurities, phase coherence, noise, THz studies, electro-luminescence in small structures)
  • Nano-devices (ultra-scaled FETs, quantum SETs, RTDs, ferromagnetic, and spin devices, superlattice arrays, IR detectors with quantum dots and wires, quantum point contacts, non-equilibrium transport, simulation, ballistic transport, molecular electronic devices, carbon nanotubes, spin selection devices, spin-coupled quantum dots, nano-magnetics)
  • Quantum coherent transport (quantum Hall effect, ballistic quantum systems, quantum computing implementations and theory, magnetic spin systems, quantum NEMs)
  • Mesoscopic structures (quantum wires and dots, chaos, non-equilibrium transport, instabilities, nano-electro-mechanical systems, mesoscopic Josephson effects, phase coherence and breaking, Kondo effect)
  • Systems of nano-devices (QCAs, systolic SET processors, quantum neural nets, adaptive effects in circuits, molecular circuits, NEMs)
  • Nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanowires, organic and molecular materials, self-assembled nanowires, organic devices)
  • Nano-bio-electronics (electronic properties of biological structures on the nanoscale)
  • Nanostructures for advanced energy applications
