Call for
There is a huge demand for research tools allowing one to “see” nanostructures and to characterize and understand materials as well as biochemical process at nanoscale resolution. Optical techniques such as imaging and spectroscopy at nanoscale make this possible. Optical imaging with spatial resolution far beyond the diffraction limits of light together with spectroscopic studies with highly localized optical fields have pushed the limits of spatial resolution and sensitivity to new scales. Continuous improvements open ways to novel applications at the forefront of scientific knowledge.

The purpose of this interdisciplinary conference is to encompass all aspects of nano-imaging and nano-spectroscopy, including theory and novel concepts, experimental demonstration of novel concepts, major developmental progress and applications to any field in science, in particular, biology, medicine, and the material sciences.

Papers are solicited in (but not restricted to) the following areas:

Far-field super-resolution imaging/nanoimaging techniques, such as:
  • stimulated emission depletion (STED) microscopy
  • photoactivated localization microscopy (PALM)
  • stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (STORM)
  • direct stochastic optical reconstruction microscopy (dSTORM)
  • structured illumination microscopy (SIM)
  • ground state depletion-individual molecule return (GSDIM) microscopy
  • reversible saturable optical fluorescence transitions (RESOLFT) microscopy.

Near-field super-resolution imaging/nanoimaging techniques, such as:
  • near-field scanning optical microscopy (NSOM/SNOM)
  • tip-enhanced Raman scattering (TERS) microscopy
  • tip-enhanced photoluminescence (TE-PL) microscopy
  • tip-enhanced coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (TE-CARS) microscopy.

Other super resolution optical imaging techniques, such as:
  • saturated excitation (SAX) microscopy
  • other nonlinear optical microscopy.

Nano-spectroscopic techniques, such as:
  • surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS)
  • surface-enhanced infrared absorption spectroscopy (SEIRAS)
  • shell-isolated nanoparticle-enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SHINERS)
  • stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SRS).
