Every autumn, NanoLund celebrates scientific results by arranging a symposium on a specific focus theme, with invited talks by leading scientists, local presentations, and a large poster session on NanoLund research. Also invited are friends, collaborators, and associated institutions of NanoLund.
2021, the annual meeting was held on 12 October with 160 participants present and some 100 online. Program chairs Ivan Scheblykin and Jesper Wallentin had put together an exciting program. The program included invited and contributed talks on the topics:
- Radiation from microwaves to visible light and X-rays to study the nanoworld
- Generation and detection of radiation by nanodevices
- Systems from semiconductors to nanoparticles and nanowires and biologically related objects
27 speakers including Anders Mikkelsen’s introduction, poster pitches, and presentations of Seedling Projects – also known as the Junior Scientist Ideas Awards. There were 47 posters from Materials Science, Quantum Physics, Nanoenergy, Nanoelectronics & Photonics, Nanobiology & Neuronanoscience, and Exploratory Nanotechnology.
After the talks, awards and prizes were delivered:
