New Materials Science Using Regulated Nano Spaces - Strategy in Ubiquitous Elements


Great progresses have been made in nano materials science in these two decades and such related researches have become one of the most important scientific directions to date. This conference focuses on novel materials that cannot be produced by the conventional lithographic techniques, from which we can expect very intriguing physical properties and apply them to observe new scientific phenomena.

Conference topics

Clathrate, Zeolite, Mesoporous material, Quantum confinement, Rattling, Covalent conversion, Synthesis, Thermal conductivity, Electric conductivity, Superconductivity, Magnetism, Magnetic resonance, Raman spectroscopy, Structure analysis, Semiconductor device, Quantum device, Mesoscopic device
