ICMAB Upcoming Events

Symposium on Scanning probe microscopies (SPM) at XXXIX RSEF Physics Biennial, coorganized by ICMAB 15-19 JULY 2024

In recent years, improvements in the miniaturization and assembly processes of matter, as well as the use of novel chemical species, have placed nanotechnology as a major producer of new ma- terials: customized organic molecules, nanowires, 2D materials and materials for energy, among others. These new materials are expected to be part of future electronic devices addressing some of humanity’s current challenges, such as electronic efficiency, energy storage, climate change and disease control.

13 February 2024

Scanning probe microscopies (SPM) play a key role in the characterization and fabrication of these materials. These techniques provide valuable information at the nanometer scale about the structure and physical properties of materials. It also enables structure-property correlations, which is crucial for understanding the behavior of materials and is a source of inspiration for the design of new ones with specific properties. In addition, SPM studies on materials can be performed in situ on working devices, such as transistors, photodetectors or batteries. This symposium will cover SPM works for the production, characterization and test of materials for future electronics.

Date: Donostia/San Sebastián from July 15 to 19, 2024
Héctor González Herrero (UAM) Daniel Martín Jiménez (ICMAB) Ana Pérez Rodríguez (U Salamanca)
Invited speakers: Daniel Ebeling (Universidad Justus Liebig, Gießen, Germany), Fabian Schulz (CIC nanoGUNE), Carmen Munuera (Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid), Marc González Cuixart (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology), Sara Barja (University of the Basque Country), Eider Berganza (Instituto de Ciencia de Materiales de Madrid), Aitor Mugarza (Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology)
