Materials at the nanoscale

Starts at: 03 November 2018
Ends at: 04 November 2018

O r g a n i z e d  by the

Hellenic Society for the Science and Technology of Condensed Matter (HSSTCM-ΕΕΕΤΣΥ) under the auspices of the School of Physics of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki


Saturday 3 & Sunday 4 November 2018

S c o p e

The workshop on “Materials at the Nanoscale” aims to provide an insight in selected fields, applications and techniques related to nanomaterials. The term nanomaterials refers to materials with at least one of its dimensions at the nanoscale. They find numerous applications in photonics, tribology, biomedicine, catalysis and many other fields.

The lectures will include a short introduction with a review of fundamental principles and examples of recent work. Experimental techniques that provide information and allow the study of materials at the nanoscale, synthesis methods and properties of certain types of nanomaterials, biomedical, environmental, optical etc. applications of nanomaterials will be presented. Theoretical aspects related to materials at the nanoscale and issues related to the risks associated with nanomaterials will be also presented.

The workshop is aimed at M.Sc. and Ph.D. students who wish to expand their knowledge in the field of nanoscale materials. Scientists, engineers and technicians working in research and education, who are interested in extending their knowledge in nanomaterials, will also benefit.
