4th Workshop on Nanotube Optics and Nanospectroscopy

 
     
 

Continuing the successful WONTON series (Telluride, USA, 2005, Ottawa, Canada, 2007 and Matsushima, Japan, 2009 ) WONTON’11 was organized in 2011 in the beautiful city area of Bordeaux, France.

 

The workshop mainly focused on the optical studies on nanotubes and graphene which will include :

  • Light absorption, emission, and scattering
  • Raman spectroscopy
  • Carrier interactions, band structure and optical spectra
  • Excitons in carbon nanotubes
  • Spectroscopy of individual nanotubes
  • Magneto- and electro-optics
  • Nanotube-based optoelectronic devices and electroluminescence
  • Growth, purification and separation of nanotubes for optical studies
  • Spectroscopy of Graphene.
4th Workshop on Nanotube Optics and Nanospectroscopy

 

The format of the workshop was kept in tradition with the previous WONTON editions to promote high-quality scientific and social interactions between the participants.
