The Snomipede: Project Open Day

Molecular Nanostructures from Fabrication to Applications – the Snomipede project aims to a adapt near-field optical techniques (capable of 9 nm resolution) to massively parallel operation, offering nanometre scale spatial resolution, combined with exquisite chemical selectivity, over macroscopically extended areas. This open day will provide a selection of highlights from our workon the development of […]
