16th International Conference on Non-Contact Atomic Force Microscopy

 

August 5 - 9, 2013

Maryland, USA

 

The NC-AFM 2013 Conference continues a series of international conferences dedicated to research at the frontiers of science and technology of nc-AFM and spectroscopy.  The conference covers experimental, theoretical, and instrumental contributions on frequency modulation and other dynamic and static operation modes with particular emphasis on high resolution imaging and force spectroscopy for a broad range of applications in nanosciences.  

 

The conference welcomes contributions for oral and poster presentations dealing with one or more of the following topics:

  1. Novel Instrumentation and techniques in AFM
  2. Atomic resolution imaging on insulating substrates, semiconductors, and metals
  3. Atomic resolution imaging on molecular systems
  4. High-resolution imaging of clusters, biomolecules, and biological systems
  5. Atomic- and molecular-scale manipulation
  6. Combined force and tunneling spectroscopy
  7. High-resolution imaging and spectroscopy in liquid environments
  8. Theoretical analysis of contrast mechanisms; forces & tunneling phenomena
  9. Measuring tip-sample interaction potentials and mapping 2D and 3D force fields
  10. Small amplitude and lateral force measurements using dynamic methods
  11. Mechanisms for damping and energy dissipation
  12. Measuring nanoscale charges, work function, and magnetic properties
  13. Simulation of images and virtual SPM systems
  14. Tapping mode versus non-contact mode imaging
  15. Multifrequency techniques
