Materials at the nanoscale

3 November 2018 to 4 November 2018
Thessaloniki, Greece
FEMS Member Society recommended event

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.
