The 6th International Workshop on Nano-scale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology

NSS6 concluded on 29 Oct 2010, and proved to be a successful and enjoyable meeting. Thanks to all concerned.

The deadline for submission of proceedings papers has been extended to 12 November 2010.

We welcome the online display of photographs taken during the meeting. Please inform us if you have any on your institution (or other) website and we will place a link from this page. Alternatively please send us your digital photographs on CD or DVD and a selection will be displayed on this site. Workshop photos will be uploarded shortly.

Progress in nanofabrication technology has led to the development of semiconductor nanostructures with characteristic physical properties and potential applications in micro- and optoelectronic devices. To evaluate such nanostructures, different spectroscopic techniques have been developed which can provide a nanometer-scale lateral resolution.

The International Workshop on Nanoscale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology is a biennial meeting series to share the information on latest research advances of science and technology in the nanometer regime. The scope includes (but is not limited to) electronic, optical, magnetic, mechanical and transport properties of nanoscale systems, and nanoscale devices as well as nanomanipulation. Previous workshops were held in Trieste, Italy (NSS-1, 2000), Tokyo, Japan (NSS-2, 2002), Washington D.C., USA (NSS-3, 2004), Rathen, Germany (NSS-4, 2006), and Ohio, USA (NSS-5, 2008).

The 6th International Workshop on Nanoscale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology (NSS-6) provides a forum for the exchange of recent scientific and technical knowledge in this rapidly growing field. Scientists from industry, academia, and government labs are invited to participate. Technical sessions will cover the spectrum from fundamental to applied spectromicroscopic research. Discussion is an important feature of this workshop. Ample time will be available for discussion, both during and between the sessions.
