The University Lille 1 will host the Second International Workshop on Metallic Nano-Objects (MNO 2014) from 13th to 14th November 2014. This workshop will be built on the success of the previous edition (MNO 2012), organized by the Hubert Curien Laboratory, that took place at University Jean-Monnet in Saint-Etienne. It aims to provide an overview on recent advances and challenges in the development of nano-objects and their applications in materials science. Academic and industrial scientists, technologists and students from various national and international universities, institutes or companies are expected to participate to the workshop. During these two days, a number of talks will be given by key experts and well-known speakers on the elaboration, assembly, manipulation, modeling and characterization of metallic nano-objects, as well as on their applications. We solicit abstract for oral or poster presentations on the following topics.

    Topics: The topics of the workshop will be organised around the following themes:

    • Plasmonics and nanophotonics, nonlinear optics, nano-thermal effects, magnetic properties
    • Growth, reshaping and organization techniques of metallic nanoparticles and nanostructures
    • Characterization and modeling of the optical properties, single metallic nano-objects, interparticle coupling
    • Applications in art, catalysis, photovoltaic, lasers, data storage, cryptography, biology, ...
