Nano Tech 2019 in Tokyo

The international nanotechnology conference and exhibition, Nano Tech 2019, brought together universities, research institutes, companies, and other actors to show the latest nano related materials, production methods, and technologies. At the event, current and future possibilities of nanotechnology and a wide variety of its applications were showcased. 

Of special interest was a Graphene seminar by Prof. Kostya Novoselov (Nobel laureate in Physics in 2010), giving a future vision on the possibilities for engineering structured 2D-layered materials on an atomic scale, creating possibilities for advanced multifunctional and multisensing applications with also other layers than carbon. 

Other interesting themes at the Nano Tech 2019 were the increased use of 3D-printing for different applications and materials; how to find new and efficient ways of harvesting energy for supplying electronics; as well as sensors integrated in vast range of applications.
