COST action MP0901 NanoTP (WG 2 and 3) Workshop

Vibrational Spectroscopy in Nanotechnology

June 26 and 29, 2011, Istanbul, Turkey




The aim of this workshop is to bring together. The synthesis and preparation of novel nanostructures are one of the important goals in nanotechnology to extend the portfolio of novel engineered nanomaterials for their applications in variety of fields. The characterization is the first step to explore the novel properties of these structures. The vibrational spectroscopies such as Sum-Frequency Generation spectroscopy (SFG), Reflection-Absorption Infrared Spectroscopy (RAIRS), Raman Spectroscopy, Surface-enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS) are powerful characterization techniques for the goal. This workshop will bring the scientist working on the preparation of several different nanomaterials and realizing the vibrational spectroscopy as characterization tool. This will not only serve to recognize the importance of these techniques for nanomaterial characterization but also give an opportunity to the scientists working on related fields to discuss the recent advances vibrational spectroscopic techniques.

This workshop is organized as a satellite meeting to NanoTR (, which is the largest nanoscience and nanotechnology meeting of Turkey. This conference will be held during June 27-July 1 at Sabanci University ( The fist meeting of the workshop will take place on July 27, Sunday at Yeditepe University campus ( and the second meeting on June 29 as embedded into NanoTR conference. If you wish to attend and persent at NanoTR, you need to submit an abstract separately. The abstract submission and deadline are provided at its website.


Please contact the organizer for accommodation. There will be some free rooms available from Yeditepe University upon guest. However, there will be a priority list due to limited space. Please contact the secreteriat for more information. If you like to stay in a hotel close to the city you may reserve a room with special rates valid for NanoTR attendees. (
