Learn about a new, unique THz-frequency probe arm option for cryogenic probe stations. The solution enables precise probing of millimetre-wave devices at 75–110 GHz or 140–220 GHz frequencies, allowing calibrated S-parameter and other high-frequency measurements to be performed as a function of low temperature and magnetic field.

Int. Conference "Piezoresponse Force Microscopy and Nanoscale Phenomena in Polar Materials" and Int. Youth Conference "Functional Imaging of Nanomaterials"

The joint conference will cover a wide range of topics related to functional imaging of nanomaterials by various techniques including Scanning Probe Microscopy (Piezoresponse Force Microscopy – PFM, Electrochemical Strain Microscopy – ESM, Kelvin Probe Microscopy – KPM), Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM), Optical Microscopy (Confocal Microscopy – CM, Scanning Near-Field Optical Microscopy – SNOM, Raman Microscopy – RM). The Youth Conference will consist of tutorial session on these methods and scientific conference on nanoscale phenomena in ferroelectrics, ionic conductors, and polar biomaterials.

● Instrumental aspects of PFM, ESM, KPM, SNOM, SEM, CM, RM, and related techniques as applied to functional nanomaterials
● Ferroelectrics, piezoelectrics, and ionic conductors on the nanoscale
● Multiferroic phenomena and magnetoelectric coupling on the nanoscale
● Disordered ferroelectrics, domains, and mesoscopic effects
● Ferroelectric data storage and polarization lithography
● Ferroelectric photovoltaics and tip-enhanced phenomena
● Interface and domain engineering
● Biocompatible & organic polar materials on the nanoscale
● 1D and 2D nanostructured polar materials
● Theory and modeling
