Bellingham, Washington, USA (PRWEB) November 10, 2013
International research in nano- and microscale materials and technologies with applications in solar cells, healthcare, printing, and other fields will be reported during SPIE Micro+Nano Materials, Devices, and Applications 2013 in Melbourne, Australia, next month. Dates are 8-11 December.
The event will feature nearly 200 presentations in a multidisciplinary forum on biomaterials and biological microdevices, micro and nanofluidics, photonics, fabrication, metrology, solar cell technologies, plasmonics, MEMS/NEMS, and nanomaterials.
Research in these areas enables promising new materials and applications across many fields including air, water, and food quality; energy; security; and medicine, noted conference chair James Friend, director of the MicroNano Research Facility at RMIT.
"Research activity at small scales is driving the convergence of traditionally disparate disciplines including engineering, science, biology, and medicine," Friend said. "With the construction of numerous new facilities across the Australasian region in support of this field and concomitant rapid growth in research output over just the past few years, an interdisciplinary forum among top researchers in nano- and microscale research is timely."
Among schedule highlights are several plenary talks:
- P. Daniel Dapkus, Univ. of Southern California, on "Semiconductor nanostructures in energy devices"
- Tanya Monro, University of Adelaide, on "Nanophotonics for biology"
- Detlef Lohse, Universiteit Twente, on "Hydrodynamic challenges in inkjet printing."
