18th Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference, TNT 201718th Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference, TNT 2017External EventDresden, Germany 07:00:00 18th edition of Trends in Nanotechnology International Conference (TNT2017) is being launched following the overwhelming success of earlier Nanotechnology Conferences. The TNT2017 edition will take place in TU Dresden Auditorium Center (Dresden, Germany). On the occasion of TNT2017 a Graphene one-day Symposium will be organized in collaboration with ICN2 (Spain) and will take place on June 06. This high-level scientific meeting series aims to present a broad range of current research in Nanoscience and Nanotechnology as well as related policies (European Commission, etc.) or other kind of initiatives (iNANO, nanoGUNE, MANA, GDR-I, etc.). TNT events have demonstrated that they are particularly effective in transmitting information and establishing contacts among workers in this field. The TNT2017 structure will keep the fundamental features of the previous editions, providing a unique opportunity for broad interaction.11/04/2017 07:46:14085932aspx13

14th European Conference on Molecular Electronics, ECME 201714th European Conference on Molecular Electronics, ECME 2017External EventDresden, Germany 07:00:00 European Conference on Molecular Electronics, ECME, has become the premier European Conference in the field, and ECME 2017 will belong to the prestigious series of biannual conferences previously organized in Italy (Padua, 1992), Germany (Kloster Banz, 1994), Belgium (Leuven, 1996), United Kingdom (Cambridge, 1997), Sweden (Linköping, 1999), The Netherlands (Rolduc, 2001), France (Avignon, 2003), Italy (Bologna, 2005), France (Metz, 2007), Denmark (Copenhagen 2009), Spain (Barcelona, 2011), United Kingdom (London, 2013) and France (Strasbourg, 2015). ECME 2017 will take place in Dresden from August 29 – September 2, 2017. Dresden is one of the international hub for organic and molecular electronics. In a short time, the city grew to become a top location in the areas of microelectronics, nanotechnology, new generation materials, and life sciences. Electronic companies such as Globalfoundries, Infineon, VON ARDENNE GmbH, and Novaled broaden the economic and scientifically spectrum. Therefore, the capital of Saxony offers a combination of young and already grown expertise within these fields and therefore qualifies as one of the leading advanced research centers in Europe. The conference will cover all areas related to molecular -organic and plastic- electronics including chemistry, physics, biology, materials science, nanoscience, engineering, device fabrication and commercialization. We are very much looking forward to your participation! The Organizing Committee Prof. Dr. Gianaurelio Cuniberti Prof. Dr. Karl Leo Prof. Dr. rer. nat.

Explore graphene

What is graphene?
Graphene – a single layer of carbon atoms – may be the most amazing and versatile substance available to mankind.
The history of graphene
If you have ever drawn with a pencil, you’ve probably made graphene.
The European roadmap for graphene science and technology
This roadmap was developed within the framework of the Graphene Flagship and outlines the main targets and research areas as best understood at the start of this ambitious project.
