General information

The III International Conference
"Modern problems in the physics of surfaces and nanostructures (ICMPSN2017) "
will be held in October 9-11, 2017 in Yaroslavl, Russia

Conference is covering wide area of research in the field of physics of surface and nanostructures and is focused on recent progress in that area.

Focus and topics of the conference:

  • physics of atoms, molecules and nanostructures (steps, clusters and islands) on surfaces,
  • physics of thin films, processes of thin film growth,
  • growth, self-organization and stability of nanostructures
  • self-organization of surfaces and nanostructuring, surface phase transitions,
  • surface magnetism, magnetic nanostructures, spintronics,
  • dynamics of surfaces and nanostructures
  • surface diffusion and growth
  • electronic and optical properties of surfaces, surface plasmonics
  • Interaction of ions with surfaces
  • physics of thin films and multilayer structures
  • physics of atomic clusters and nanostructures
  • MEMS and NEMS
  • surface chemical reactions and nanocatalysis
  • Nano/microscale heat and mass transfer. Radiative properties of nanomaterials
  • new experimental techniques to study surfaces
  • novel theoretical and computer simulation techniques in surface physics
  • nanocomposite materials for electrochemical power source

The experimental techniques discussed include physics and technology of nanofabrication and thin film growth. On the theoretical side, particular attention will be paid to coarse-graining methods to study nanoscale structures starting from microscopic calculations.

Yaroslavl is an ancient russian city, located in Central Russia region on Volga river ( 280 km from Moscow) and belongs to so called "Golden Ring of Russia". This city is of major touristic destination for tourists visiting Russia. It has numerous historical buildings and othodox churches dated from 16-19th century.
