Dear ICTOPON 2009 participants!
Thank you for your scientific contributions to the conference: it was strong both from a scientific and cultural perspective. For that we thank you very much. We certainly hope that we will be able to capitalize on this conference, and to start and enhance potential collaborations.
We also want to take this opportunity to acknowledge conference chair, Professor Mahi Singh, who really was the prime driver in this event and worked tirelessly to ensure its success.
ICTOPON 2009 Organizing Committee
An International Conference on Transport and Optical Properties of Nanomaterials was held on January 5-8, 2009 at Allahabad, India. The objective of this conference is to bring together scientists and engineers working on various aspects of nanomaterial synthesis and characterization, and on photonics to discuss the most recent developments in the areas of growth and characterization of nano-structured materials, fabrication of devices with optical and electronic properties determined by nano-scale features, and theoretical modeling of electronic, optical, magnetic and thermal properties of such systems. There shall be both oral and poster presentations of research papers besides some plenary and invited talks by leading experts in the fields. One evening session will be devoted to remembering Late Prof. G.S. Verma, who worked at University of Allahabad and Banaras Hindu University and was a stalwart in the field of Transport Phenomenon.
We cordially invite all researchers in the fields listed below and in related areas:
This unparalleled change in technologies to date can be traced back very directly to discoveries in basic science and to the direct and focused interaction between basic, applied and industrial scientists and engineers. Entirely new methods and ideas have to be developed and new approaches will have to be tried. On the nanoscale, size itself (for example through quantization) produces novel physical, chemical and engineering properties that can be exploited to fabricate devices with entirely new characteristics. The associated challenges, both intellectually/scientifically and eventually industrially, are enormous and fascinating.
Conference co-chairs are Mahi Singh, University of Western Ontario, London, ON, Canada, and Hari Prakash, University of Allahabad, India.
