Project Workshop - Spectroscopy and microscopy of nanostructures

3. September 2020 

Weizmann Institute of Science (Israel)  


Nanostructures and nanoparticles of different kinds are investigated intensively in connection with numerous applications. Microscopy and spectroscopy are major tools for their investigation and their characterization. In the workshop “Spectroscopy and microscopy of nanostructures” different techniques for the investigation of nanostructures will be presented and discussed. In addition, new kinds of nanoparticles and nanostructures will be discussed for diverse applications, such as catalysis, optoelectronics and for structural nanomaterials.

Due to the Covid-19 situation the conference has been converted to a one day Zoom webinar.
