8th International Tutorial Workshop on PFM and Nanoscale Electromechanics of Polar Materials, August 25-27, 2010, Beijing, ChinaSubmitted by jiangyuli on Wed, 2010-01-20 19:18.
This workshop aims
to provide in-depth description and recent advances in piezoresponse force microscopy (PFM) and nanoscale
electromechanics. It will introduce basic principles of PFM operation, relevant
instrumental aspects, and image interpretation. The theory of cantilever
dynamics, PFM contact mechanics, resolution theory, and their implications for
qualitative and quantitative data interpretation will be presented. The recent
technical advances, including vector PFM, high-frequency PFM, band-excitation
and DRFT imaging, switching spectroscopy PFM, and imaging and polarization
switching in liquids and vacuum, will also be illustrated. For ferroelectric
and multiferroic materials, applications of PFM for domain imaging, nucleation
The Nanobrücken Nanomechanical Testing Workshop, Feb 24-26, 2010 at INM Saarbrücken in Germany, aims to bring together researchers from the international nanomechanical community in a forum that highlights both techniques and applications. The workshop features an outstanding lineup of keynote and invited speakers. We cordially invite you to attend and encourage you to participate with a contributed oral or poster presentation.
The Sixth M.I.T. Conference on Computational Fluid and Solid Mechanics will be held in June 2011 at M.I.T.
The theme of the Conference is "Solids & Structures", and the topic is interpreted in a very broad way.
The Abstracts for full papers to be published in Computers & Structures are due January 31, 2010.
please see http://www.sixthmitconference.org
The conference proceedings will be published by Elsevier as a special issue of the journal "Computers and Structures",
and we are planning for this issue to be ready at the Conference in June 2011.
