INC7: The 7th International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation

For the seventh year in a row, global senior researchers, industry leaders and policy makers will gather at the International Nanotechnology Conference on Communication and Cooperation.

In 2011, Tsukuba, home city to the country's national testing and research facilities encompassing such research fields as science, industry, agriculture and forestry, environment and space development, will be the communal ground for in-depth discussions and technical sessions on a variety of issues related to the future of international collaboration in nanotechnologies.

In order to further strengthen the continuous dialogue between Japan, Europe and the United States, broad regional overviews will be combined with detailed presentations from each of the regions.

INC is one of the key events for policy makers, industry leaders and senior researchers to attend in order to stay informed of the developments in major research programs worldwide.


The electronics industry has been the major enabler of the computer, communication and consumer industries throughout the 20th century. They have propelled the growth of the economy Most of the building blocks of these industries will reach fundamental limits by the end of the next decade.

It is of critical importance that these limits are overcome in the next ten years.


Make overview presentations of regional Nanotechnology programs supported by the organizers including Government, Industry, and Academia.
Include a theme on Nano-electronics in each conference
Foster communications and cooperation among Nano-electronics initiatives and other fields, e.g. chemistry, opto/display electronics, biology etc.
Include presentations and posters on relevant nanotechnology subjects from other regions (i.e. non organizers) as submitted by request and subject to availability, to stimulate additional communications and cooperation Technical sessions highlight today's state of affairs and tomorrow's challenges and bottlenecks regarding various related domains in nanoelectronics and explore the links with related areas, such as biotechnology, advanced materials development, microsystems and photonics.

A topical session highlights the economical and societal implications of nanotechnology.

Keynote Speaker: Leo Esaki, Nobel Laureate
"In Half a Century of Research What did I Explore"

Im Focus: Novel light sources made of 2D materials

Physicists from the University of Würzburg have designed a light source that emits photon pairs. Two-photon sources are particularly well suited for tap-proof data encryption. The experiment's key ingredients: a semiconductor crystal and some sticky tape.

So-called monolayers are at the heart of the research activities. These "super materials" (as the prestigious science magazine "Nature" puts it) have been...

Im Focus: Etching Microstructures with Lasers

Ultrafast lasers have introduced new possibilities in engraving ultrafine structures, and scientists are now also investigating how to use them to etch microstructures into thin glass. There are possible applications in analytics (lab on a chip) and especially in electronics and the consumer sector, where great interest has been shown.

This new method was born of a surprising phenomenon: irradiating glass in a particular way with an ultrafast laser has the effect of making the glass up to a...

Im Focus: Light-driven atomic rotations excite magnetic waves

Terahertz excitation of selected crystal vibrations leads to an effective magnetic field that drives coherent spin motion

Controlling functional properties by light is one of the grand goals in modern condensed matter physics and materials science. A new study now demonstrates how...

Im Focus: New 3-D wiring technique brings scalable quantum computers closer to reality

Researchers from the Institute for Quantum Computing (IQC) at the University of Waterloo led the development of a new extensible wiring technique capable of controlling superconducting quantum bits, representing a significant step towards to the realization of a scalable quantum computer.

"The quantum socket is a wiring method that uses three-dimensional wires based on spring-loaded pins to address individual qubits," said Jeremy Béjanin, a PhD...

Im Focus: Scientists develop a semiconductor nanocomposite material that moves in response to light

In a paper in Scientific Reports, a research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute describes a novel light-activated phenomenon that could become the basis for applications as diverse as microscopic robotic grippers and more efficient solar cells.

A research team at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has developed a revolutionary, light-activated semiconductor nanocomposite material that can be used...
