Southampton to host international conference on nanotechnologies
A conference on nanotechnologies for future communication devices, which mean that mobile phones and computers will be even lighter, more functional and more economical, will be held at the University of Southampton next month.
Professor Hiroshi Mizuta, Head of the Nano Research Group at the University's School of Electronics and Computer Science (ECS), will host the 2010 International Symposium on Atom-scale Silicon Hybrid Nanotechnologies on 1 and 2 March.
Eight sessions delivered by eminent academics and industry representatives will address themes including atomically-controlled nanostructure fabrication, hybrid NEMS technology and single-spin technology. These emerging silicon-based nanotechnologies will provide us with a breakthrough to overcome the limits of present information and communication technology systems.
Professor Mizuta says: "This event will illustrate that if we adopt unique properties of atomically-controlled nanostructures and heterogeneous co-integration with other emerging technologies such as NEMS, nanophotonics and nanospintronics, we can develop extremely functional information processing devices, faster than anything we could ever have imagined with just conventional technologies."
The 2010 International Symposium on Atom-scale Silicon Hybrid Nanotechnologies for 'More than Moore' and 'Beyond CMOS' will be held at Garden Court, University of Southampton on 1-2 March 2010, sponsored by Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
