Workshop ”Atomic structure of nanosystems from transmission electron microscopy experiments and first-principles simulations” onborad a cruise ship


Dear members,

We would like to draw your attention to the International Workshop:

"Atomic structure of nanosystems from transmission electron microscopy experiments and first-principles simulations”, http://www.helsinki.fi/nanocarbon/boat2011.php

The workshop is to be held onboard of a cruise ship going from Helsinki to Stockholm and back on May 31 - June 02.

Registration for the workshop is possible via an online form. Registration deadline is April 15th, 2011.

The main idea behind the workshop is to bring together TEM and DFT experts to discuss the progress in TEM analysis and visualization of the atomic structure of nanosystems and how simulations can help in the interpretation of the images. Also image simulations based on DFT results are going to be discussed. The workshop will be focused on carbon systems, but other materials will be addressed as well. Among the topics also are electron-irradiation-induced defects, their evolution and identification, electron-beam-mediated engineering of nanostructures.

 

The preliminary list of the invited speakers is as follows:

Florian Banhart (U. Strasbourg, France)
Rafal Dunin-Borkowski (TU of Denmark)
Dmitri Golberg (NIMS, Japan)
Hua Jiang (Aalto University, Finland)
Ute Kaiser (U. Ulm, Germany)
Steven Louie (U. California, Berkeley, USA)
Scott Mao (U. Pittsburgh, USA)
Jannik Meyer (U. Vienna, Austria)
Kazu Suenaga (AIST, Japan)
Eli Sutter (Brookhaven National Laboratory, USA)
David Tomanek (Michigan State University, USA)
Jamie Warner (U. Oxford, Great Britain)

More invited speakers will be selected based on contributed abstracts.
