EXTENDED DEADLINES: SPM DIPC Week - A Tribute to Heinrich Rohrer (San Sebastian)

The Scanning Probe Microscopy DIPC Week will take place in San Sebastian (Spain): September 05-12, 2014



The event, a Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC) School, is a tribute to Heinrich Rohrer (1933-2013) who shared the 1986 Nobel Prize in Physics with Gerd Binnig for the design of the scanning tunneling microscope (STM). This invention gave scientists the ability to image, measure and manipulate atoms for the first time.


The school will cover basic concepts and fundamentals of different SPM techniques including STM, Near Field Optical Microscopy (SNOM) and Atomic (AFM), Electrostatic (EFM) or Magnetic Force microscopes (MFM). It will also cover advanced topics such as time resolved SPM, density functional theoretical approaches, single molecule SPM or biology and nano-medicine applications.


These main topics will be complemented with a workshop with seminars on state-of-the-art SPM research, with participation of some of the most relevant scientist, who will give a first-person view of last discoveries on this field.


Abstract Submission (Oral & Poster request): June 30, 2014

Author Submission Acceptance Notification: July 04, 2014

Early Bird Registration Fee: July 14, 2014

Welcome - about us

Welcome! Nanopaprika was cooked up by Hungarian chemistry PhD student in 2007. The main idea was to create something more personal than the other nano networks already on the Internet. Community is open to everyone from post-doctorial researchers and professors to students everywhere.

There is only one important assumption: you have to be interested in nano!

Nanopaprika is always looking for new partners, if you have any idea, contact me at editor@nanopaprika.eu
