The Villa and Virtual Conferences on Interaction Among Nanostructures (VC-IANs) provides an interdisciplinary forum for the open communication in understanding of the physical, chemical, and biological interactions among nanoscale components of any compositions and morphologies, including carbon nanotubes, nanoparticles, nanowires, and quantum dots.

Coverage includes, but is not limited to, the latest developments in the following areas:

  • Elastic and electronic interactions among semiconductor nanostructures;
  • Nanowire crossing and Nanowire-quantum dot interactions;
  • Hybrid semiconductor/metal nanostructures;
  • Functionalization of Carbon Nanotubes in conjunction with biomolecules, nanoparticles, organic polymers, or quantum dots;
  • Quantum dot molecules, quantum rings, and complexes;
  • Nanomaterials with nanoscale biological components;
  • Interplay between nanoscale patterning and nanowires/nanotubes/quantum dots;
  • Interactions between the building blocks in nanosystems.Universal
