Veeco to host Seeing at the Nanoscale III

May 26, 2005

Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) announced today that it will host the "Seeing at the Nanoscale III" conference being held at the University of California, Santa Barbara (UCSB), from August 13-16, 2005. The conference, now in its third year, provides an optimum forum for scientists to 'speak to scientists' on a wide variety of cutting-edge nanotechnology topics. Masakazu Aono of the National Institute for Materials Science (NIMS) Japan, will be this year's keynote speaker. Evelyn Hu, California NanoSystems Institute (CNSI), is the conference advisor.

Conference registration and further details are available here.

The theme of the three-day symposium, which is sponsored in conjunction with CNSI and UCSB, is "Exploring Nanostructure Imaging, Characterization and Modification using Scanning Probe Microscopy and Related Techniques." Several hundred international researchers and scientists have attended the prior years' events.

Don Kania, Ph.D., Veeco's President, commented, "In our third year, we are returning to Santa Barbara, which is both a beautiful location and a key center of nano-research. We expect "Seeing at the Nanoscale" to continue to be a premier international scientific forum for those involved in nanoscience from both academia and industry. Nanostructural imaging, characterization, and modification utilizing scanning probe microscopy is revolutionizing scientific research. This conference is a tremendous opportunity for scientists worldwide to discuss their latest discoveries."

Session topics for "Seeing at the Nanoscale III" will be as follows:

  • Session 1: Visualization I: Biomolecules and Biological Processes/ Chair: Christopher Yip, University of Toronto
  • Session 2: Nanomechanical & Local Property Measurements/ Chair: Walter Arnold, Fraunhofer Institute, Germany
  • Session 3: Visualization II: Materials and Polymer Systems/ Chair: Sergei Magonov, Veeco Instruments
  • Session 4: Measurements of Electrical, Optical, Magnetic and Thermal Properties of Materials at the Nanoscale/ Chair: Sergei Kalinin, Oak Ridge National Laboratory
  • Session 5: Instrumentation: New Tools and Techniques for Nanoscience/ Chair: Martin Moskovits, UCSB
