Welcome to the 2nd Workshop on Low-Dimensional Structures: Properties and Applications

January, 31 - February, 1, 2008- Aveiro, Portugal

The Workshop will cover the properties and applications of low-dimensional structures that are currently a hot topic in the Physics, Chemistry, Biology and related areas. The Workshop will provide an in-depth introduction to the most recent developments in such fields.

The Workshop combines lectures of top-level scientists that are among the world leaders in their fields with a possibility for the attendees to present their own results in the form of posters and to discuss them with the renowned specialists.

The main topics of the Workshop will be dedicated to the following areas:

Energy Conversion:

Electroluminescence devices, optoelectronics, solar cells, polymers and organic small molecules semiconductors, chemical sensors, etc.

Microscopy / Photonics / Spintronics / Quantum Cryptography:

Electronic, optical and magnetic properties of low-dimensional semiconductors, systems for quantum communications, transparent conductive oxides, developments of quantum cryptography, etc.


Biological sensors, nanoparticles for biology and medicine, funcionalization of nanostructures for medicine, nanostructured devices for biologics applications, etc.
