ConferenceTuesday, April 19, 2016 (All day)Washington, DC http://www.bloomberglive.com/events/the-future-of-manufacturing/ While economists debate over whether the U.S. manufacturing industry has hit a recession or a temporary stall due to low energy prices, one things appears clear – the future of U.S. manufacturing hinges on its ability to evolve and rethink operating models. In a recent study by Morgan Stanley, nearly 75% of U.S. plants are more than 20 years old. With such aging infrastructure, the question must be asked, how will the U.S. regain its place as the leader in manufacturing, and what will future manufacturing plants look like? Bloomberg will convene federal and state policy makers, and leaders of the manufacturing industry to discuss the imperative facing the U.S. manufacturing industry to innovate and evolve their businesses, and to develop an understanding of the benefits and costs of such efforts.
CNST: Designer Materials Through Controlled Nanocrystal Coupling for Electronic and Optical Applications
LectureThursday, April 7, 2016 - 1:00pmGaithersburg, MD http://www.nist.gov/cnst/designer_materials_through_controlled.cfm CNST Nanotechnology Seminar Series Cherie R. Kagan University of Pennsylvania, Department of Electrical and Systems Engineering, Department of Materials Science and Engineering, Department of Chemistry Bldg. 215, Rm C103-106 Semiconductor and plasmonic nanocrystals are known for their size- and shape-dependent photoluminescence and localized surface plasmon resonances respectively. In this talk, I will describe the use of semiconductor and plasmonic nanocrystals as building blocks of mesoscale materials for semiconductor electronics and optoelectronics and plasmonic optical metamaterials. Chemical exchange of the long ligands used in nanocrystal synthesis with more compact ligand chemistries brings neighboring nanocrystals into proximity and increases interparticle coupling. In semiconductor nanocrystal solids, we show strong electronic coupling in combination with doping allows us to control the carrier type and concentration and design high mobility n- and p-type materials. I will give examples where n- and p-type nanocrystal solids are used to construct field-effect transistors and integrated circuits and solar photovoltaics. In metal nanocrystals, ligand-controlled coupling allows us to tailor a dielectric-to-metal phase transition seen by a 1010 range in DC conductivity and a dielectric permittivity ranging from everywhere positive to everywhere negative across the whole range of optical frequencies. We realize a "diluted metal" with optical properties not found in the bulk metal analog, presenting a new axis in plasmonic materials design and the realization of optical properties akin to next-generation metamaterials. We harness the properties of metal NCs by using nanoimprint lithography to print large-area metamaterials on glass and plastics with widely tailorable optical properties that are used to realize near-infrared optical devices.

ConferenceMonday, August 22, 2016 (All day) to Thursday, August 25, 2016 (All day)Sendai, Japan http://ieeenano2016.org/index.html IEEE Nano is one of the largest nanotechnology conferences in the world, directly hosted by the IEEE Nanotechnology Council. It is a must for students, educators, researchers, scientists and engineers engaged in a wide range of nanotechnology fields and related applications, including electronic materials, photonics, biotechnology, medicine, alternative energy, environment and electronic devices. Since its first round on Maui Island, Hawaii, in 2001, IEEE Nano has been held annually in rotation between North America, Europe, and the Asia Pacific region.

ConferenceSunday, July 3, 2016 (All day) to Friday, July 8, 2016 (All day)Herrnstein, Austria http://www.engconf.org/conferences/biotechnology/nanotechnology-in-medicine-from-molecules-to-humans/ Nanotechnology is prominent in medicine for various applications that span use in understanding cellular and molecular interactions to the downstream development of technologies for disease characterization, detection and treatment. A few examples include systemically injectable nanoparticles for the targeted delivery of multiple therapeutic and contrast agents; multi-scale hierarchically-complex implants for the regeneration of bone and soft tissues; micro/nano-fluidic chips resembling the authentic architecture and biology of real organs. Despite the high promise of nanotechnology, only a few of these technologies generated have made it to clinical utility. It is likely that the limited translation of nanotechnology-based interventions to date is also due to the lack of mechanistic understanding of cellular and molecular interactions of these technologies owing to the complexity of biological systems in health and diseases. We envision the ECI Nanotechnology in Medicine conference to provide a platform to aid in the mechanistic understanding of cellular and molecular interactions/responses induced by nanotechnologies and the exploitation of these understandings to generate highly effective nanotechnologies for the early detection, imaging and treatment of human diseases. The conference will bring together biologists, materials scientists, physicists, engineers and clinical scientists. Session Topics (as currently envisioned) Nano/microparticles for diagnostics and therapeutics Nano/microtechnology for study of cellular and molecular dynamics Nanotechnology and translational medicine Nanotechnology and biopolymer for regenerative medicine Nanostructures for cell adhesion, growth, motility, and differentiation Nanoscale interactions for cell, tissue and organ
