Veeco Hosts 6th Annual International Nanoscience Conference in Europe

WOODBURY, NY | Posted on January 14th, 2008

"Seeing at the Nanoscale has become a prime international event featuring the latest advances in nanoscience with scanning probes and their strong impact on nanotechnologies," commented this year's conference chairman, Physics Professor Dr. Jürgen P. Rabe from Humboldt University Berlin. "This is a very exciting time in the nanosciences, and I am looking forward to the innovations and research that will be discussed this year. The last time the conference was held in Europe, it was an outstanding success, and I am delighted to welcome everyone to Berlin!"

The three-day conference, themed "Exploring the Future of Nanotechnology," provides both a platform and a tremendous opportunity for scientists worldwide to discuss their latest discoveries, and to share their research on next-generation nanotechnology with their peers and other visionaries in the field of nanoscience. Each year the conference hosts several hundred international researchers and scientists. Conference sessions for 2008 include:
Session I Extending the limits of SPM: high speed scanning, ultra high resolution imaging, multiple probe SPM, novel probes
