Between October 17 and 28, the « V School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology » takes place, organized at the Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (CONICET-CNEA) / the Constituyentes Atomic Center (San Martín, Buenos Aires Province). This year, the School is focused on the growth and characterization of nanomaterials in the form of thin films. The school is supported by the Ultra-Thin Magneto Thermal-SensorIng (ULTIMATE-I) project of the European Commission, French Centre National de la Recherche Scientifique (CNRS), and the University of Zaragoza (UNIZAR).
Nanoscience and nanotechnology are advancing rapidly, forming a disciplinary area with a deep impact both at the level of basic and applied science, providing solutions for the main problems facing humanity, such as the generation, conversion and storage of energy, the caring for the environment, the diagnosis and treatment of diseases or the storage and processing of information. The School of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology (ENN) will contribute to the education or training of new generations of scientists and technologists in the different manufacturing techniques, characterization, assembly and control of nanosystems, as well as the different calculation tools. The activity is aimed at doctoral and post-doctoral students and young researchers interested in nanoscience and nanotechnology and in the development of nanomaterials and devices. This opportunity will allow ULTIMATE-I researchers to present tutorials on thin film growth, nanocharacterization by XRD and TEM, device nanofabrication, nanomagnetism, and transport measurements.
The school is aimed at doctoral students, post-doctoral students and young researchers interested in the area of nanoscience and nanotechnology.
The classes will be given by project members Laura Steren (CONICET), Myriam Aguirre (UNIZAR), Javier Briático (CNRS), Juan Bonaparte (CNEA) and Diego Rubí (CONICET):
