Forum des Microscopies

Forum des Microscopies à sonde locale

From April 3rd, 2023 Until April 7th, 2023

Obernai, France

The Local Probe Microscopy Forum is a tri-national French-speaking conference that has taken place every year for more than 20 years. It brings together over 5 days about 100 scientists studying the physical and chemical properties of nanomaterials and surfaces, using the full range of local probe microscopy techniques (AFM, STM, SNOM). These booming microscopy techniques have now become essential tools for characterizing materials and nanoobjects and are used both in basic research and in industry.

Continuous technical developments around these microscopes allow them to operate in different environments (under UHV, at the liquid-solid interface, at low temperature, under controlled atmosphere, etc.) and they are increasingly often coupled with other characterization techniques (SEM, Raman, robots, etc.). They are used in all fields, ranging from Biology to Chemistry, including Physics (optics, mechanics, magnetism, surface physics, materials, sensors, etc.).

This Forum, which marks an important stage in the life of our community, is a privileged moment to take stock of recent advances in the physics and chemistry of surfaces but also to structure new collaborations favoring the emergence of original and promising projects in France. like on the international stage. In addition, by promoting the work of young researchers, doctoral and post-doctoral students, this symposium allows them to establish contacts in order to prepare for recruitment in our research organizations, our universities or our industrial partners.

The format of the Forum allows all participants to take the time to meet and discuss with manufacturers and distributors in the field. The support of our industrial partners is therefore a key point in the success of this Forum.


NWO Physics

NWO Dutch Research Council Annual Physics Conference

From April 4th, 2023 Until April 5th, 2023

Veldhoven, The Netherlands

After two online editions, NWO Physics is making a real-life comeback at NH Koningshof, Veldhoven! The 2023 edition of NWO Physics will take place on 4 and 5 April. NWO Physics is a large conference that provides a topical overview of physics in the Netherlands. Traditionally, young researchers are given the chance to present themselves and their work alongside renowned names from the Dutch and international physics community.


2023 MRS Spring

2023 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit

From April 10th, 2023 Until April 14th, 2023

San Francisco, California


Time and time again, multidisciplinary research is touted as essential to innovation. That is why, from April 10-14, 2023, researchers working in seemingly unrelated fields will gather in San Francisco to promote, share and discuss issues and developments across disciplines. The virtual portion of the 2023 MRS Spring Meeting will be held from April 25-27, 2023. 

The 2023 MRS Spring Meeting & Exhibit is the key forum to present research to an interdisciplinary and international audience. It provides a window on the future of materials science, and offers an opportunity for researchers—from students and postdoctoral fellows, to Nobel and Kavli Prize Laureates—to exchange technical information and network with colleagues.


EuroMBE 2023

The 21 st European Workshop on Molecular Beam Epitaxy (EuroMBE 2023)

From April 16th, 2023 Until April 19th, 2023

ETSI de Telecomunicación (Telecommunication Engineering School)
Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, Madrid (Spain)

This workshop gathers senior and young scientists from Europe and beyond in an informal and friendly atmosphere. It provides an unique opportunity for the presentation and open discussion of latest results on epitaxy of novel materials, nanostructures, new trends on MBE growth and modeling, devices and innovative technologies.

The workshop will also offer exhibition space for companies to present new products and applications to the MBE community.

EuroMBE 2023 follows the latest successful workshops held in L'Alpe d'Huez, France (2011), Levi, Finland (2013), Canazei, Italy (2015), Korobytsino, Russia (2017), and Lenggries, Germany (2019).

Main scientific topics

  • Epitaxy of conventional semiconductors (IV-IV, III-V, II-VI, IV-VI) and hybrid structures
  • Epitaxy of III-Nitrides (GaN, AlN, InN, BN)
  • Nanostructures (QDs, nanowires, site-controlled epitaxy, droplet epitaxy)
  • Novel III-V heterostructures including dilute nitrides, bismides, and topological insulators
  • Epitaxy of 2D materials
  • Epitaxy of oxides
  • Epitaxy of ferromagnetic and spintronic materials
  • Epitaxy of organic materials
  • Simulation, design, and theory of growth
  • Characterization of epitaxial structures
