International Workshop on Nanoscale Spectroscopy and Nanotechnology 8 (NSS-8)
Chicago, Illinois

NSS-8, organized by the Center for Nanoscale Materials (CNM) and Advanced Photon Source (APS), featured sessions on SPM-and electron microscopy-based nanoscience, synchrotron applications to nanomaterials, solar/molecular processes, piezoelectrics, and nano-optics, among others. The conference was organized by Saw-Wai Hla, leader of the Electronic and Magnetic Materials and Devices group with co-chair Volker Rose of the X-ray Microscopy Group. The conference was hosted by Argonne National Laboratory and sponsored by Ohio University's Nanoscale and Quantum Phenomena Institute.

Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics
Workshop on Nanophotonics
Trieste, Italy

Co-sponsored by Argonne National Laboratory and the National Science Foundation, this workshop described the fundamentals, recent advances, and applications of nanophotonics. It was organized to encourage interaction among participants from all countries and at all levels. It provided a unique opportunity to advance knowledge and understanding in the area of interaction of light with subwavelength-size objects. Eric Isaacs (Argonne Director) and Daniel Lopez (CNM) were among the organizers.

Chemically Synthesized Nanoparticles and Catalysis

Co-Organizers: Elena Shevchenko (CNM) and Byeongdu Lee (Advanced Photon Source)

This workshop was part of Argonne's Materials for Energy Initiative, which is an incubator for creating an expansive landscape of new molecules and materials, exploring the science of synthesis in the laboratory and on the computer, and opening pathways through bottlenecks — both in fundamental and use-inspired arenas.

Materials to Enable Low-Power Nonvolatile Memories: Oxides and Beyond

One of Argonne's strategic themes is materials and molecular design and discovery (M2D2), with a particular focus on oxides and related materials relevant for energy applications. As power consumption for computing, data storage, and electronics applications are projected to increase at substantial rates, it is clearly of interest to explore materials for applications in low-power electronics.

This workshop consisted of invited presentations, poster session, and discussions, and we hope it will provide the basis for future collaborations among researchers in industry, academia, and national laboratories. The invited presentations spanned topics from an industrial perspective to fundamental materials research as well as device-oriented research.

Applications of Raman Microscopy to Nanoscience

The CNM hosted a workshop and training course covering applications of Raman microscopy to nanoscience. One day of invited scientific presentations included nanoscale materials, nanoscale devices, and nanotechnology projects that have been advanced by exploiting, for example, confocal Raman microscopy and tip-enhanced Raman spectroscopy. The program also included a poster session and an additional half-day short course devoted to hands-on demonstrations and training on the CNM Raman instrumentation. The co-organizers were David Gosztola (CNM) and Vic Maroni (CSE).

Opportunities for Magnetism in MEMS/NEMS

Daniel Lopez (CNM)
Axel Hoffmann (MSD)
John Moreland (National Institute for Standards and Technology)

Hosted by the Center for Nanoscale Materials and
Materials Science Division

Several speakers from the United States and Canada will discuss their current research in this area and the interesting possibilities that appear when magnetic nanostructures are incorporated into micro- and nano-mechanical systems. Opportunities beyond some of the ongoing work in this area will be identified and explored.
