INL researchers at NanoPT in Porto

January 26, 2015

A significant delegation of INL researchers will participate in this year’s edition of NanoPT. The international conference takes place in Porto from February 11th-13th. The 3rd edition will be held with the purpose of strengthening ties nationally and internationally in Nanotechnology and, intends to be a reference event in Portugal in forthcoming years.

INL’s Director-Geral, Lars Montelius, (Bridging the materials gap through radical Innovations) and research fellow, Inês Pinto (Epithelial Tumor Dynamics: Nanocharacterization of force-generating structures), are keynote speakers.

The programme includes oral presentations from Jérôme Bórme, Wafer-scale fabrication of solution-gated graphene field-effect transistors for biosensing applications; Lifeng Liu, Extraordinarily Efficient Electrocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution Achieved by Amorphous MoOxSy Catalysts Electrodeposited on Crystalline TiO2 Nanotube Arrays; Ana Vila, Designed Nanocomposite Magnetic Beads for isolation of Circulating Tumor Cells (CTC); Yury Kolen’ko, p-Type Cu2O colloids optimized for photoelectrochemistry and electronics; Jana Berit Nieder, Presentation of the New “Ultrafast Bio- and Nanophotonics” Laboratory at INL; and Xiaoguang Wang, Direct Growth of Nickel Phosphoride Nanoneedles on Nickel Foam for Efficient Electrocatalytic Hydrogen Evolution.

The programme also includes oral presentations from two PhD students: Mohammad Tareqzzaman will talk about Large power emission in MTJ based spin torque nano-oscillators using a free layer near the in-plane to out-of-plane transition and José Diogo Costa will give a presentation on Nanofabrication of Magnetic Tunnel Junction Pillars Targeting Nano-Oscillator Applications.

In the Poster section, INL will be represented by José Blanco (Water-Dispersible Silver Nanoclusters: Synthesis and Characterization) and Noelia Guldris (Iron Oxide Nanoparticles as Contrast Agents for Magnetic Resonance Imaging Applications)
