Franco-Iberian nanosensors workshop

vendredi 21 mai 2010

This workshop aims to foster contacts and collaborations on nanosensors and related fundamental science in south west Europe. Nanoparticles or nanostructured materials play an ever broadening rôle in physical, chemical and biological sensors. Understanding, designing and using these devices requires new approaches to finite size and interface effects.

- influence of finite size on the physical state
- enhanced reactivity at the nanoscale
- surface functionalisation and sensor-medium interfaces
- confinement effects in nanostructured materials
- detection and counting of single nano-objects

Outline program :

The workshop begins with a get together on Tuesday evening 19th October 2010 and ends after lunch on Thursday 22nd October. All invited and oral presentations are plenary. Posters and the exhibition will be on display during all breaks. Planned sessions include :

- Thermometry at the nanoscale
- Magnetic nanosensors
- Chemical sensing
- Single particle and near field detection
- Biological and medical applications
