2012 European Conference on Electrical Measurements at the Nanoscale Using AFM

One-Day Conference: 4 July | Supplemental Demonstrations: 5 July | Location: Linz, Austria


Agilent Technologies cordially invites you to attend a scientific conference at Johannes Kepler University focusing on nanoscale electrical measurements enabled by atomic force microscopy (AFM) techniques. Diverse, recent work will be presented by leading experts from across Europe!


In addition to the conference on 4 July, there will be an optional day of hands-on demonstrations at JKU on 5 July. Enrollment for this day of supplemental activities is limited to 10 delegates (first-come, first-served basis). If you would like to attend the demos on 5 July, please let us know as soon as possible and provide a description of any samples you will be bringing.

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
