NanoInk is sponsoring a symposium for researchers whose common interest lies in expanding methods of direct-write nanoscale fabrication, and realizing applications from these capabilities. Considering Dip Pen Nanolithography (DPN) and other Scanning Probe Lithographies, Microcontact Printing, and Inkjet Printing (among others), we want to explore overlapping interests in both bottom-up and top-down nanofabrication.

Topics & Application Areas

Online abstract submissions are now being accepted. Proposed topics include, but are not be limited to:

  • Direct-write nanobio arrays, and detection techniques
  • Cellular diagnostics and cell-surface modeling
  • Conductive inks
  • SERS / plasmonics interfacing with nanolithographic techniques
  • Bottom-up assembly via templating (i.e., for biomolecules, carbon nanotubes or quantum dots)
  • Nanopatterned materials for devices (i.e., gas sensors, OLEDs)
  • Other
