Conference: Frontiers of Characterization and Metrology for Nanoelectronics (FCMN)

14.04.2015 (Tuesday) - 16.04.2015 (Thursday) Hilton Dresden , An der Frauenkirche 5 , 01067 Dresden

The FCMN brings together scientists and engineers interested in all aspects of the characterization technology needed for nanoelectronic materials and device research, development, and manufacturing. All approaches are welcome: chemical, physical, electrical, magnetic, optical, in-situ, and real-time control and monitoring. The conference summarizes major issues and provides critical reviews of important semiconductor techniques needed as the semiconductor industry moves to silicon nanoelectronics and beyond.

The conference will consist of formal invited presentation sessions and poster sessions for contributed papers. The poster papers will cover new developments in characterization and metrology especially at the nanoscale.
