IHRS NanoNet was funded by Initiative and Networking Fund of Helmholtz Association (VH-KO-606) until Dec 2020.

NanoNet+ Annual Workshop 2023

The Annual Workshop of the International Helmholtz Research School (IHRS) for Nanolectronic Networks (NanoNet) and the Department of Nanoelectronics of HZDR will place at the Jugendherberge Sayda on September 11-13, 2023. It will be organized in collaboration with the Chair for Integrated Photonic Devices at TU Dresden lead by Prof. Dr. Kambiz Jamshidi. This workshop will be exactly 10 years after the first workshop of IHRS NanoNet in 2013.
The topics of the workshop are 1D and 2D Materials and Devices for Electronic and Photonic Applications.
For registration details see below.

An Excursion to Seiffen is scheduled on the 2nd day- start at the hostel at 2:15 pm. by bus.
We will get a tour at the Seiffener Volkskunst to learn more on the unique local craftsmanship and the passion for shaping wood. For sure, there will be time to stroll around and admire the many precious wooden objects available in the shops around. Don't be puzzled, Seiffen looks like a German Christmas Market all year round.
At 4:15 pm., the participants may have a coffee break at 'Cafechen', Seiffen, Hauptstraße 102.
