ICON² is organised by the Synchrotron SOLEIL and the CEA Saclay and will be held at INSTN and Synchrotron Soleil on October 18th-20th, 2017. A social dinner will be held at the Musée d'Orsay.
During the last years intensive research activity in the field of nanomaterials lead to tremendous improvement and discoveries in the fields of novel materials including their preparation, characterization, properties and applications. ICON2 is an interdisciplinary conference with the aim of facilitating discussions and scientific interactions on fine chemistry, biomaterials, functional polymers, energy storage and conversion materials, nano materials, ceramic materials, metallic materials, and other novel materials. A session will be dedicated to time resolved experiments and especially laser pump / synchrotron based spectroscopy and related techniques (X-FEL, HHG, 2PPE) at time scale ranging from millisecond to femtosecond to promote this growing research field.
