NANOENERGY2013 - International Conference, Perugia July 10-13, 2013

International Conference July 10-13, 2013 – Perugia (IT)
The first International Conference on Nanoenergy will be held in Perugia , Italy during July 10-13 2013.
The aim of Nanoenergy2013 is to bring together researchers, engineers, academicians as well as industrial professionals from all over the world and from different disciplines interested in the subject of micro and nanoscale energies.
Energy at small scales is a cross-disciplinary field that covers both theoretical and experimental aspects of fundamental and applied sciences ranging from nanotechnology to statistical physics, from computer science to biomedicine.
This conference, supported by the European Commission through the “Toward zero power” initiative, provides opportunities for the delegates to exchange new ideas and application experiences face to face, to establish business or research relations and to find global partners for future collaboration.

NANOPOWER second year is now completed

The NANOPOWER project has now completed the second year of activity and has reached a full maturity. It was conceived in order to address the powering issue in microscale electronic devices. The scientific objective of this project is thus to study energy efficiency with the specific aim of identifying new directions for energy-harvesting technologies. With this aim, three different classes of prospective power generators are presently under scrutiny by the six research groups composing the NANOPOWER consortium: nonlinear nanomechanical harvesters, heat rectification and quantum harvesters. For each device class significant progresses have been made. Two patents for two new concept devices are under consideration: a novel method for storing tiny quantities of energy at microscales and new nanoscale electric generators based on purely quantum devices.
