Symposium on 3D Active-site Science in London

-3D Atomic-imaging Technologies from Materials to Biology-


Day : Monday 4th February 2019.

Place: Ballroom of the Japanese Embassy

           Embassy of Japan in the UK, 101-104 Piccadilly London

Registration Fee: Free

Registration is closed

Aim (Scope):

"Active site" is a keyword indicating the atomic structures of the active centers, which govern functions in all inorganic-, organic- and bio-materials. Structural analysis methods focusing on the active sites of such various kinds of materials has not been established yet. To realize this goal, we have developed new 3D atomic imaging technologies based on holography and advanced instruments. In this meeting, we want to discuss the future collaboration with distinguished researchers relating large accelerator facilities in UK.
