Materials Science Engineering - Young Researcher meet Professionals

 

At the biennial International Conference "Materials Science Engineering (MSE 2014)" organised by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Materialkunde in Darmstadt from 23 - 25 September 2014.


Fernando Palacio together with Luis Carlos are organising the following symposium:

 

Materials for Thermometry in the Nanoscale

The Symposium is open to contributions in thermometry and thermal conductivity with space resolution in the submicron scale although others close to these criteria could also be acceptable. The symposium is interested in any experimental approach aimed to measure thermal properties within the above resolution conditions, including luminescent, non-luminescent, near-field or biological methods among others. It is intended to be an occasion for discussion with the community in order to discover directions, priorities and opportunities.
 
Advances in nanotechnologies have prompted the need of thermometry in the nanoscale. This is a most challenging multidisciplinary subject requiring new approaches, new materials and new techniques, as conventional thermometry is no longer valid at such scale. On the other hand, sensing and measuring temperature is a crucial requirement in countless scientific investigations and technological developments. Apart from a few pioneering works published at the very end of the past century, the subject of investigating and developing thermometric materials and devices working with submicrometer space resolution has exploded over the last 10 to 15 years. It should be noted that this is a multidisciplinary subject with a strong demand for an adequate forum where different views and backgrounds would help to cross-fertilise the area. The symposium Materials for Thermometry in the Nanoscale aims to provide such forum where specialists in each particular technique can discuss the underlying theoretical basis, the achievements and limitations as well as future trends and technological possibilities.

Organic- and Molecular based Magnets 

 

Introducing a new material in electronics demands methods to describe its properties, its growth, its surface, and the obtained interfaces. This is one of the present challenges in organic magnetism. After years of chemical optimization, nowadays organization of organic- and molecular based magnets onto a substrate and in a device is the new challenging task, in view not only of the variety of new devices that can be realized but also in order to analyze and understand the influence of the surface/contact environment has on the magnetic properties at the molecular scale. 
 

The Symposium is open to contributions on organic-based magnets, including metal-free magnets, concerning all theoretical and experimental aspects related to interfaces, surfaces, and devices. It is intended to be an occasion to discuss with the community to discover directions, priorities and opportunities.

Please visit the website http://mse-congress.de/ for all practical information and abstract submission. I am looking forward to meeting you in Darmstadt!
