    IVSLA nanoscale school
    Directors: Alberto Diaspro and Giorgio Giacometti.

    Organised by Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia under the auspices of the Italian branch of the Biophysics and Photonics Society within an ItaBi training activity.

    The objective of this School is to advance the field of nanoscale optical microscopy operating at the scale of nanometres to tens of nanometres, through the exchange of information, ideas, and innovative techniques. The understanding of methods and techniques has the great potential of allowing, in the near future, for the design and performance of new exciting experiments in Biophysics, Optics and Photonics.
