Collaborative Workshop on

Modulation and Nanostructuring
in Layered Materials

(Workshop ModNanoLayered 2012)

28 - 31 March 2012

Institute of Physics, Zagreb, Croatia

Dear Colleagues,

We invite you to attend the Collaborative Workshop on Modulation and Nanostructuring in Layered Materials (Workshop ModNanoLayered 2012), organized by the Institute of Physics, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL), Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb and University of Split which was financed with the funds obtained from the Croatian Science Foundation (CSF) and to a lesser degree with the ones obtained from the Laboratoire de Physique de la Matière Complexe, École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, and the Institute of Physics.

The purpose of the workshop is to push forward the ideas of future joint investigations, collaboration, and project applications. The precise subject and scale of the possible collaborations/project-proposals is not fixed, although it is expected that some may be drafted during the meeting, and then refined in the following months. The reference to layered (quasi-2d) systems that figures in the title of the gathering is expected to give a broad guideline, as this still seems a vast and promising subject, especially when combined with structuring on nano-scale. This also reflects in the background of the invited participants. The gathering is expected to have around thirty participants, with around fifteen externally invited participants. The people from experiment in condensed matter (transport, ESR, neutron scattering, NMR, ...), theory, as well as sample production are supposed to be there.

Contributions are invited in the areas of various homogenous low-dimensional/layered crystalline materials, spontaneous nano-structuring in otherwise homogenous systems, and artificial nano-patterned materials.

We cordially ask you to join us at the Workshop ModNanoLayered 2012 !
