Symposium 1: Nanospectroscopy (June 1st, 2016)


- Prof. Pierre-Michel Adam University of technology of Troyes, France



Nanospectroscopy is a highly developing recent field of research that is dedicated to new methods or techniques to perform spectroscopy with a nanometric spatial resolution and to the investigation and discovery of new phenomena at the nanometer scale. Nanospectroscopy is at the interface between physics, chemistry and biology and includes both new theoretical and experimental developments.


  • UV / VIS / NIR spectroscopy, absorption and scattering spectroscopies
  • Raman scattering and fluorescence, non-linear spectroscopies
  • Enhanced surface sensitive spectroscopies : SERS, SEIRA, SEF
  • Spectroscopic techniques with (ultra-)high spatial, temporal, and spectral resolution and sensitivity
  • Nanoscale systems design and nanofabrication: novel (hybrid) (in)organic nanomaterials
  • Physical processes and modelling of light-matter interactions at the nanoscale
  • Applications : biochemical sensing, healthcare, photovoltaics, light sources, new materials
