Park Systems and NanoScientific Publications are proud to announce the 2018 NanoScientific Symposium on Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM), a new venue for nanoscience researchers, scientists, and engineers to learn about the latest studies being formed using SPM. Keynote speakers from both academia and industry will be on hand to talk about the current cutting-edge work being performed in their laboratories and discuss the headway they have made with SPM in some of the hottest fields and topics in nanoscience today.

Speakers for the 2018 NanoScientific Symposium on SPM at SUNY Polytechnic Institute

Dr. Alain Diebold, SUNY Polytechnic Institute, Interim Dean of the College of Nanoscale Science; Empire Innovation Professor of Nanoscale Science; Executive Director, Center for Nanoscale Metrology.The main focus of Professor Diebold's research is in the area of nanoscale metrology and materials science. Measurement of nanoscale films and structures requires a thorough understanding of the role of uniquely nanoscale phenomena on the properties of nanoscale semiconductors and metals.

Dr. Gwo Chang Wang, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), Travelstead Institute Chair, Physics, Applied Physics & Astronomy.Research focus on growth, characterization, and physics of thin films and nanostructures using state-of-art techniques.

Mr. Phil Kaszuba, Global Foundries Senior Member of Technical Staff and lead engineer in their Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) laboratory. Lead engineer in Globalfoundries' Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM) laboratory inEssex Junction, Vermont. Our lab performs analyses on state of the art semiconductor devices andnanostructures.

Dr. Rigoberto Advincula, Professor with the Department of Macromolecular Science and Engineering at Case Western Reserve, University and Research Professor at the Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, University of Houston, editor-in-chief of MRS Communications.

Jiahua Jack Zhu, PhD, University of Akron, Associate Professor, Department of Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. His lab focuses on the fundamental study of polymer nanocomposites (PNCs) and carbon nanocomposites (CNCs) and their applications in the fields of energy conversion and storage, environment remediation, catalysis, electronic devices & bioengineering.

Prof. John A. Marohn, Professor & Director of Undergraduate Studies,Department of Chemistry and Chemical Biology Member, Field of Materials Science & Engineering,Cornell University. His group is focused on imaging the structure and function of materials at the nanometer scale, pushing magnetic resonance imaging to nanoscale resolution in order to study individual biomolecules

Prof. Yiping Zhao Professor, Department of Physics and Astronomy, Director, Nanoscale Science and Engineering Center,The University of Georgia. Research focused on nanofabrication using glancing angle deposition (GLAD) or dynamic shadowing growth (DSG), chemical and biological sensor development based on surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS) or plasmonics, chiral plasmonic structure fabrication and characterization, novel nano-photocatalyst development and applications, catalytic nanomotors and novel stroke treatment strategy.

Ye Tao Rowland Institute at Harvard , The Tao Lab seeks structure-property relationships in nanoscale, heterogeneous matter through the development of single-nucleon magnetic resonance imaging.

Nancy A. Burnham , Associate Prof of Physics & Associate Prof of Biomedical Engineering, Worcester Polytechnic Institute, The study of the interaction of the last few atoms on a sharply pointed tip with a sample surface is my first love. Usually performed via Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM)
