NMAET VPast Conferences:
Nano-Molecular Analysis for Emerging Technologies V

Wednesday 14 & Thursday 15 November 2012 - NPL, Teddington

Surface characterisation is critical for a wide range of industries and applications. Each system presents its own challenges for analysis and characterisation. This two-day conference and exhibition focused on frontier issues in high resolution imaging and 3D nano-analysis for food, agro-chem, healthcare, energy, surface interactions and characterisation of nanoparticles in the environment.

The meeting covered both the frontier science and applications in novel systems as well as recent advances in analytical techniques to characterise them, including XPS, SIMS, AFM, SPM, near field optical methods, optical trapping, ambient mass spectrometry and MALDI and will interest and engage analysts from both industry and academia.

Topics covered included:

  • Nano-Analysis for healthcare
  • Nano-Analysis for energy and environment
  • Characterisation of nanoparticles
  • Nano-Analysis for food
  • Nano-Analysis for agro-chem and forestry
  • High-resolution imaging
  • 3D Nano-Analysis and Surface Interactions

Exhibition & Sponsorship

NMAET V 2012 was established with the following media partnership:

Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) logo  

Established in 2005, the Nanotechnology Industries Association (NIA) is the only global industry-focused trade association for the nanotechnology sector. With branches across Europe and our head office in Brussels, the NIA collaborates with regulators and stakeholders on the national, European and international levels so as to secure a publically and regulatory supportive environment for the continuing advancement and establishment of nanotechnologies.

The NIA's membership consists of both established and up-and-coming companies from a wide variety of industrial sectors. Members of the NIA benefit from it acting on their behalf in globally influential fora and by providing science- and technology-based expertise through exclusive documents, alerts and articles about contemporary nano developments and events.


The following organisations participated in the exhibition of scientific equipment at this event:
