Warwick-internal NanoMaterials meeting "NanoDay06"

11:00-14:00 in PS128

Organiser: R.A. Roemer (Physics, Warwick)

[Sponsored partially by funds from the Physics Department]

Background and Purpose

The outcome of the meeting should be to see whether we can identify a common theme that we could usefully suggest to EPSRC as something worthwhile to fund at Warwick. We should prepare a two-page outline of this program after the meeting to be sent to ESPRC. Please indicate to me whether you would be interested in helping me draft this.

Application

If you wish to participate, please submit the application form at this link by February 8th, 2006.

Programme

The symposium will bring together Warwick scientists interested in Nanomaterials research. The lecturers in the following list are confirmed, their time slots are not.

Time Title Lecturer Affiliation
11:00-11:10 Welcome    
11:10-11:20 Transport in DNA / Exciton-Magnetoluminescence in Nano-Rings Rudolf A Römer Physics
11:20-11:30 Nanostructures from nucleosides Andrew Marsh Chemistry
11:30-11:40 Solid-State NMR: probing intermolecular interactions responsible for self assembly Steve Brown Physics
11:40-11:50 Theory of molecule-based electronics and self-assembly Alessandro Troisi Chemistry
11:50-12:30 lunch and posters Don Paul (Physics)  
12:30-12:40 When is self-assembly not self-assembly? Phil Woodruff Physics
12:40-12:50 Ab-initio theory for magnetic thin films and nanoclusters Julie Staunton Physics
12:50-13:00 Self-organised semiconductor nanostructures Gavin Bell Physics
13:00-13:10 Electrochemical based measurements on thin films nanoparticles and nanotubes Neil Wilson Chemistry


Organisation, Resources

Each of us should give an 8 minute presentation and then allows for 2 minutes of discussion. In that way we can have 6 talks for an hour. Please do not use more then 8-10 slides for your talk. In your talk, please try to detail

  • the systems investigated,
  • the methods employed and
  • anticipated collaboration or interaction

here at Warwick. Please also prepare handouts to be distributed to the participants of not more than 2 pages of write-up. Relevant copies of your slides will do nicely!

The physics department will pay for a sandwich lunch and depending on how many speakers we have, we might break the talk sequence for a short pause.

Confirmed Participants

Data should be correct up to 09 Feb 2005, 15:00 BST. This is all the data we hold, so if things appear wrong, contact the organizers at physics-funding-nanomaterialsforums.warwick.ac.uk.
