After the successful 3rd virtual edition of the 2020 NSFE, we are excited to invite researchers from all fields of Scanning Probe Microscopy to the fourth edition of the NanoScientific Forum Europe as a live event in the charming city of Freiburg, Germany.
Similar to the 2020 NSFE, the scientific program of the conference will follow the latest research trends and research topics dealing with improving the life standards of today and the future. In particular, the focus will be laid on nanoscale functional materials, such as organics, organic/inorganic hybrid semiconductors, nano- and biomaterials, as well as the development of novel nanometrology methods. A special session during the event will be dedicated to Nanotribology via Scanning Probe Microscopy and its Applications.
"The AFM has become the most versatile tool to investigate the surface of materials at the nano- and microscale. Applications range from topological via mechanical to electrical, chemical and magnetic properties. We expect to exchange the latest cutting-edge applications at the NSFE2021 and are happy to present our results on nanotribology of soft tissue, single polymers and triboelectricity. We are very much looking forward to hosting the NSFE2021 in the beautiful city of Freiburg next to the Black Forest." proudly comment the hosts of NSFE 2021, Dr. Thorsten Hugel and Dr. Bizan Balzar, University of Freiburg.
The NSFE 2021 will include keynote lectures on different AFM applications, poster sessions and contributed lectures enabling young scientists to present their research projects, live hands-on-sessions on Park Systems AFM instruments, where you can learn the tips and tricks on various AFM techniques, and an exciting social program.
