International Symposium on

Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology

November 29-Dececember 4, 2015

Waikoloa, Hawaii


General Information

The 2015 International Symposium on Advanced Nanodevices and Nanotechnology (ISANN 2015) is the sixth in a series of joint symposia, following the previous ones held in Hawaii in December 2007, 2009, 2011, and 2013. These meetings bring together the series of New Phenomena in Mesoscopic Structures (NPMS) and the series of Surfaces and Interfaces of Mesoscopic Devices (SIMD). This sixth symposium will be held on the Big Island of Hawaiii, at the Hilton Waikoloa Village, north of Kona (USA). The symposium will be held November 29th to December 4th, 2015.

Special Plenary Session
This year, we will have a special Plenary Session devoted to recognizing the career and many contributions to the nanotechnology field of Nobel Laureate Professor Klaus von Klitzing
International Wigner Workshop
There will be a special pre-symposium Wigner Workshop, on Sunday, Nov. 29th, devoted to the topic of the Wigner formalism, as well as a special session during ISANN on its application in nanostructures.

The scope of ISANN spans nano-fabrication through complex phase coherent mesoscopic systems including nano-transistors and nano-scale characterization. Topics of interest include:
• Nano-scale fabrication (high-resolution electron lithography, FIB nano-patterning SFM lithography, SFM stimulated growth, novel patterning, nano-imprint lithography, special etching, and SAMs)
• Nano-characterization (SFM characterization, BEEM, optical studies of nanostructures, tunneling, properties of discrete impurities, phase coherence, noise, THz studies, electro-luminescence in small structures)
• Nano-devices (ultra-scaled FETs, quantum SETs, RTDs, ferromagnetic, and spin devices, superlattice arrays, IR detectors with quantum dots and wires, quantum point contacts, non-equilibrium transport, simulation, ballistic transport, molecular electronic devices, carbon nanotubes, spin selection devices, spin-coupled quantum dots, nano-magnetics)
• Quantum coherent transport (quantum Hall effect, ballistic quantum systems, quantum computing implementations and theory, magnetic spin systems, quantum NEMs)

Classification of topological phases in condensed matter and cold atomic gases, artificial generation of Berry curvature, interacting other symmetry protected topological phases, theoretical and experimental realizations of majorana and parafermions
• Mesoscopic structures (quantum wires and dots, chaos, non-equilibrium transport, instabilities, nano-electro-mechanical systems, mesoscopic Josephson effects, phase coherence and breaking, Kondo effect)
• Systems of nano-devices (QCAs, systolic SET processors, quantum neural nets, adaptive effects in circuits, molecular circuits, NEMs)
• Nanomaterials (nanotubes, nanowires, organic and molecular materials, self-assembled nanowires, organic devices, graphene, novel 2D materials, topological insulators)
• Nano-bio-electronics (electronic properties of biological structures on the nanoscale)

• Hybrid nanosystems
• Nanoenergy (nanostructures for advanced energy applications, 3rd generation photovoltaics, novel storage devices)
