Graphene Week 2011: Fundamental science of graphene and applications of graphene-based devices

(Nanowerk News) The Graphene Week 2011 conference will be devoted to science and technology of graphene, advances in its growth and chemical processing, manufacturing graphene-based devices and studies of electronic transport, investigation of physical properties using ARPES, STM and AFM, emerging applications of this new material. It will also address studies of optical properties of graphene and their applications in optoelectronics, graphene manufacturing by mechanical and chemical exfoliation, synthesis on SiC, and growth on metals and semiconductors.
Sessions will also cover the emerging studies of nanomechanical devices incorporating graphene flakes. The conference programme will incorporate invited reviews, contributing talks, and two poster sessions. The organizers will welcome all researchers working on graphitic systems and scientists and postgraduate students from all countries.
Conference chaired by: Vladimir Falko, Lancaster University, UK; Andre Geim, University of Manchester, UK (Nobel Prize in Physics 2010); Karsten Horn, Fritz-Haber-Institut Berlin, DE & Sankar Das Sarma, University of Maryland, US.
When & where: April 24-29, 2011, Universitätszentrum Obergurgl (Ötz Valley, near Innsbruck), Austria
