NanoInk announces a full and varied list of talks for their symposium at NSTI for researchers whose common interest lies in expanding methods of direct-write nanoscale fabrication and realizing applications from these capabilities. Considering Dip Pen Nanolithography® (DPN®) and other Scanning Probe Lithographies, Microcontact Printing, and Inkjet Printing (among others), the symposium sets out to explore overlapping interests in both bottom-up and top-down nanofabrication.

The symposium (June 3rd) will form part of the expanding program of the NSTI Nanotech 2008 event to be held in Boston, June 1-5, at the Hynes Convention Center.
The program features speakers from leading research groups in the US and Europe. The keynote speakers will provide insight on various topics. Northwestern University’s Professor Chad Mirkin who is well known for his discovery and pioneering work in dip pen nanolithography and will discuss its capabilities, applications and future challenges.
Professor Vinayak Dravid, will report on his work on “old” materials, “new” tricks where he will illustrate site- and shape-specific nanopatterning of multifunctional oxides.
UC Irvine’s Professor Kumar Wickramasinghe, noted for his work in establishing scanning probe techniques while with IBM, will discuss his work applying ultrafast electrophoresis and manipulation on the nanoscale with atomic force microscopy.
With talks looking at many different materials – from biosensors and catalysts to oligonucleotides and catalysts, attendees are promised a wealth of ground-breaking applications showing the growing importance of direct-write nanoscale fabrication techniques.
