Scientific Calendar Event

Starts 15 Sep 2020
Ends 17 Sep 2020

The online Workshop is supported by ICTP.

This online Workshop will recapitulate the fundamental concepts of nano-and optomechanical systems and introduce the key concepts behind future potential nano- and optomechanical technologies.
To account for the breadth of the field, the workshop will consist of nine talks delivered by international experts.  These talks will reflect the fields which currently attract the highest scientific interest and/or application potential and cover landmark implementations of nanomechanical systems. They also represent a good balance between experimental and theory perspectives, fundamental recurrent topics and modern topics which only developed in the last couple of years, as well as between classical and quantum mechanical aspects of nanomechanics.
