PCAM Summer School: Electronic and optical properties of nanoscale materials

Lunes, 04 de Julio de 2011 (Todo el día) to Jueves, 07 de Julio de 2011 (Todo el día)

The PCAM (Physics and Chemistry of Advanced Materials) European network of doctorate programmes organizes every year a summer school on a specific relevant topic. The 2011 edition is being organized by the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU), the Materials Physics Center CSIC-UPV/EHU, the Donostia International Physics Center (DIPC), and the Nanoscience Cooperative Research Center nanoGUNE Consolider, in the framework of the Summer Courses of the University of the Basque Country. The lectures will focus on Electronic and Optical Properties of Nanoscale Materials. The participation is open to PhD students, post-docs, and all researchers interested in the field. The summer school will be held on 4-7 July 2011 in a seaside palace in the scenic city of San Sebastian, Basque Country (Spain).

Nanotechnology has set a new framework in material science where new materials are being designed for specific applications. A deep theoretical and experimental understanding is necessary to get insight and profit on the possibilities arising from the manipulation of materials at the nanoscale. The design of this course provides attendees with state-of-the-art knowledge on electronic and optical properties of nanoscale materials, most interesting in many applications such as nanodevices, sensoring, or medicine. 

The lecturers are first-class scientists and world leaders in their fields. The program, based on lectures and invited talks, will also include oral contributions and a poster session.
