The NC-AFM 2015 is the 18th edition of the conference for non-contact Atomic Force Microscopy (NC-AFM).
It continues a series of international conferences dedicated to research in science and technology conducted by NC-AFM and related techniques (spectroscopic methods, Kelvin Probe Force Microscopy, etc.).
The conference covers experimental, theoretical and instrumental contributions by means of the different dynamic operation modes used in NC-AFM. Particular emphasis is placed on high resolution imaging, nanoscale manipulation, and force spectroscopy applications used for all kinds of applications in nanoscience.
Former NC-AFM conferences were held in: Osaka, Japan (1998); Pontresina, Switzerland (1999); Hamburg, Germany (2000); Kyoto, Japan (2001); Montreal, Canada (2002); Dingle, Ireland (2003); Seattle, USA (2004); Bad Essen, Germany (2005); Kobe, Japan (2006); Antalya, Turkey (2007) ; Madrid, Spain (2008); New Haven, USA (2009); Kanazawa, Japan (2010); Lindau, Germany (2011); Ceský Krumlov, Czech Republic (2012); Maryland, USA (2013). ; Tsukuba, Japan (2014).
