Gordon Research Seminar

Basic Components for Enabling Nanomaterials: Synthesis and Advanced Imaging Techniques


July 8-9, 2017


Mount Holyoke College
South Hadley, MA


Luca G. Bettini & Giorgio Divitini

Meeting Description

The Gordon Research Seminar on Clusters and Nanostructures is a unique forum for graduate students, post-docs, and other scientists with comparable levels of experience and education to present and exchange new data and cutting edge ideas.

The Gordon Research Seminar on "Basic components for enabling nanomaterials: synthesis and advanced imaging techniques" will be focused on cutting-edge techniques for the fabrication and imaging of nanosystems and nanomaterials of both fundamental and applicative interest. A session on nanoscale materials for sustainable energy will also be presented.

The GRS will feature a keynote speech on nanomaterials from the gas-phase and a panel session on scientific publishing.
