Progress in nanofabrication technology has led to the development of semiconductor nanostructures with characteristic physical properties and potential applications in micro- and optoelectronic devices. To evaluate such nanostructures, different spectroscopic techniques have been developed which can provide a lateral resolution of better than 100 nm. The first International Workshop on Nano-scale Spectroscopy and its Applications to Semiconductor Research provides a forum for the exchange of recent scientific and technical knowledge in this rapidly growing field. Scientists from industry, academia, and government labs are invited to participate. Technical sessions will cover the spectrum from fundamental to applied spectromicroscopic research. Discussion is an important feature of this workshop. Ample time will be available for discussion, both during and between the sessions.
The first International Workshop on Nano-scale Spectroscopy and its Applications to Semiconductor Research will be held at the Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics in Trieste, Italy from December 11 to 14, 2000. Workshop language is English. The proceedings of the workshop will be published in the series Lecture Notes in Physics (Springer Verlag Heidelberg). The deadline for manuscript submission has been set to 31 January 2001. During the workshop, detailed information on how to submit a manuscript will be given. Topics of the workshop are:
Spectromicroscopy with synchrotron radiation (PEEM, Fresnel zone plates, Schwarzschild optics, SXTM). Electron microscopy (CL-TEM, CL-SEM, SAM, TEM-EELS, SEM-FA, CBED). Scanning probe techniques (STS, SNOM, CL-STM, OBIC). Nanostructures (quantum dots, quantum wires, nanotubes) Nanofabrication technology (nanolithography).
