EUPOC 2016 Block Copolymers for Nanotechnology Applications

22 - 26 May 2016, Gargnano , Italy

BCPs are extremely appealing for both fundamental studies and technological applications in several different fields that include nanostructured networks, nanoporous membranes, drug delivery vehicles, nanoparticle templates, organic photovoltaics, and next generation lithography. Modern synthetic chemistry offers the possibility of designing these macromolecules with very specific length scales and geometries.  The capability of precisely organizing these nano-objects on appropriate substrates represents a valuable tool to exploit novel technological developments.
EUPOC 2016 will offer a platform for discussing the main challenges facing this research field bringing together scientists, engineers and students working on every aspect of block copolymer self assembly.

Major topics will include:
Synthesis of new block copolymers
Theory and simulation
Self assembly for lithographic applications
Directed self-assembly of block copolymers
Metrology of block copolymers
Advanced electronic, optoelectronic, photovoltaic and membrane
