Abstract Deadline: 1st August 2017
The major effort scientific effort worldwide towards the development of novel key enabling material for the emerging technologies of Ubiquitous Society, renewable energy and health requires the development of appropriate characterization tools and methodologies able to work at the nanoscale level. Among the most desirable ones are the optical and x-ray characterization techniques as these are fast and reliable, non-destructive and non-contact methods. Therefore there is a critical need for further development of both optical and x-ray characterization techniques in order to deal with the increasing complexity of the novel key enabling materials down to the nanoscale level. This international symposium is intended to give an overview of the current status and future trends of optical and x-ray metrology for key enabling nanoscale material characterization for emerging technologies, with a particular emphasis for Ubiquitous Society, renewable energy and health applications. In addition, the optical and x-ray techniques as analytical techniques for art and culture heritage preservation, in understanding ancient objects, the technologies used to produce them, and the mechanisms of aging, stabilization and consolidation will be explored. In this symposium, these methods will be discussed with particular attention paid to their application, as well as their limitations and complementarities.
The Symposium is aimed to:
- give an overview of the current status and future trends of optical and x-ray metrology for key enabling nanoscale material characterisation for emerging technologies, with a particular emphasis for Ubiquitous Society, renewable energy and health applications
- promote and encourage the interaction between worldwide academics and in particular European ones, and Japanese academics within the emerging fields of Ubiquitous Society and next generation renewable energy and health technologies
- promote and encourage the interaction between academics and instrument manufacture to address scientific and technological challenges associated with the improvement of standard analytical methods and qualification of newer techniques suitable for addressing the needs for the emerging technologies of the future.
