ICTP in Vietnam

Nanotubes, nanoribbons, quantum dots: this is the language of nanophysics--the study of physical phenomena at the nanoscale level--which has become a distinct new sub-branch of physics and is key to finding applications in the rapidly developing field of nanotechnology.

ICTP's section on Condensed Matter and Statistical Physics used its expertise in the field to collaborate with the Institute of Physics of the Vietnam Academy of Sciences and Technology and the Asia Pacific Center for Theoretical Physics to host a Regional School on Physics at the Nanoscale. The school, held in Hanoi in December 2009, attracted some 60 participants from the Southeast Asia region and covered theoretical and computational aspects of nanophysics.
