(Nanowerk News) The European Science Foundation (ESF), the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) and the University of Innsbruck, Austria, are jointly organising a conference on graphene science on March 2-7, 2009 in Obergurgl, Austria.
This conference will be devoted to the rapidly progressing science and technology of graphene (atomically thin graphitic films): advances in its growth and manufacturing graphene-based devices, investigation of physical properties of graphene using a broad range of characterization methods, and emerging applications of this new material.
Topical sessions will address graphene synthesis and its ARPES and STM studies; manufacturing of graphene p-n junctions, nanoribbons and quantum dots and their transport studies, heat transfer in graphene-based structures and hybrid circuits; optical properties of graphene and its applications in optoelectronics. The conference programme will include invited reviews, contributing talks, a poster session; time will also be devoted to informal discussions.
This ESF-FWF-LFUI conference will welcome all researchers working on graphitic systems, or simply interested to learn more about graphene. The conference is open for scientists and students from all countries.
