The 19th International Scanning Probe Microscopy Conference
Kyoto 2017

Scope of the Conference

Scanning Probe Microscopy

Traditionally, ISPM conferences provide an ideal occasion to present novel discoveries in theory, instrumentation and application of scanning probe microscopes. Applications of scanning probe techniques should emphasize studies of adsorbates as well as physical and chemical properties at solid surfaces. Topics of interest include high speed SPM, high resolution imaging of biomolecules, imaging of whole cells, processes on metals, semiconductors, and other solid surfaces.


A nanostructure session will provide the opportunity to present novel discoveries of recent developments in theory, processing and applications of self-organized and synthetic sublithographic nanoscaled structure formations and properties. Applications of processing should include developments of nanoscaled devices. Topics of interest include surface roughness, step dynamics during film growth, epitaxial growth modes, phase separation on surfaces, characterization techniques, defect engineering and electronic properties of nanostructures.

Nano- and Bio-sensors with Cantilevers

Nano- and Bio-sensors session will provide the chance to present the development, fabrication and implementation of the novel materials and technologies for the creation of state-of-the-art nano- and bio-sensors with cantilevers. The scope of the topic will include the following: bio-array, bio-patterning, electrochemical biosensors, nano-scaled biosensor system, multi-functional biochips for biological diagnostics.
