NAMBE 2023

Workshop on Quantum Materials Epitaxy

From September 15th, 2023 Until September 19th, 2023

University of Wisconsin, Madison, USA

The 37th North American Conference on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (NAMBE 2023) is a prominent international forum for reporting scientific and technological developments in Molecular Beam Epitaxy research.

The conference showcases important results from fundamental materials and device research, through technological applications, and into high-volume and low-cost production. NAMBE features the presentations of the Art Gossard MBE Innovator Award, the NAMBE Young Investigator Award, and the Best Student Paper awards.

In addition to a diverse technical program, vendors will exhibit the latest equipment available for material growth and characterization. The exhibit will surround the coffee breaks and poster presentations, providing many opportunities for discussions between attendees and vendors. There will also be a job board.

The Workshop on Quantum Materials Epitaxy will be held September 16-17, 2023, at Monona Terrace. The Workshop will be all invited and they are accepting poster abstracts through April 26. Read more about the Workshop on Quantum Materials Epitaxy here.

The Conference welcomes the contribution for oral and poster presentations on the following topics (but not limited to):

  • Novel instrumentation and techniques
  • Atomic resolution imaging on insulating substrates, semiconductors, and metals
  • High-resolution imaging of molecules, clusters and biological systems
  • Atomic-scale imaging and spectroscopic measurements of 2D materials & quantum materials
  • Simultaneous force and tunneling spectroscopy
  • Theoretical analysis of contrast mechanisms; forces & tunneling phenomena



The AVS International Symposium and Exhibition

From November 4th, 2023 Until November 9th, 2023

Oregon Convention Center, Portland, OR.

The AVS International Symposium and Exhibition addresses cutting edge issues associated with materials, processing and interfaces in both the research and manufacturing communities.

The weeklong Symposium fosters a multidisciplinary environment that cuts across traditional boundaries between disciplines, featuring papers from AVS Technical Division, Groups, Focus Topics on emerging technologies and more.

An extensive Exhibition of related equipment, tools, materials, supplies, chemicals, services, consulting, technical literature, and new technologies are showcased during the week. 



From November 20th, 2023 Until November 22nd, 2023

Nancy at the Grand Amphithéatre de l'Université de Lorraine, France

Since 2021, the national network entitled NS-CPU, have gathered the entire French UHV SPM community. More than 130 people participate, including researchers and engineers from the CNRS, CEA2 and universities who all use UHV based SPM techniques such as STM, noncontact AFM, KPFM and other related techniques. The 40 research groups are in the possession of around 70 UHV systems, which partially also have integrated several other UHV instruments such as LEED, Auger, QMS, XPS/UPS, etc. Like before (Toulouse 2021 and Paris 2022), this years workshop will be organized in the beautiful city of Nancy at the Grand Amphithéatre de l'Université de Lorraine between November 21st (Tuesday 2 PM) and November 23rd (Thursday 2 PM).


STM/AFM Workshop


From November 28th, 2023 Until December 2nd, 2023

Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland

We will be attending the 12th Workshop on Applications of Scanning Probe Microscopy – STM/AFM 2023 which will be held in Zakopane from Wednesday, November 29 to Sunday, December 3, 2023, at the HYRNY Hotel ( The Workshop is organized by the Centre for Nanometer-scale Science and Advanced Materials, NANOSAM, of the Faculty of Physics, Astronomy, and Applied Computer Sciences, Jagiellonian University in Krakow, Poland. The main goal of the Workshop series is to gather scientists who are or who would like to be involved in surface science research using Scanning Probe Microscopy (SPM). These SPM methods include Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AFM), and other related techniques operating in ultra-high vacuum environment and liquid/gas atmospheres. The Workshop to be an interdisciplinary meeting for participants representing different theoretical and experimental disciplines of scientific research.
