Conference Focused Topics

VACUUM ELECTRON SOURCES: theory, materials, structures, devices and their applications
(field emission, photo emission, thermal emission, photo-enhanced field emission)

Materials, structures and characterization:

  • Novel cathode devices and their fabrications methods
  • Novel cathode measurement methods
  • Novel cathodes based on carbon and new materials
  • Micro- and nanostructures for vacuum generation and measurement
  • Photo-induced emission and ultrafast electron sources
  • Atmospheric micro plasmas and discharges

Devices and applications

  • X-ray and electron imaging
  • Displays, sensors and actuators
  • Emitters for electron microscopy and spectroscopy of surfaces
  • Thermionic energy converters
  • Nanoscale vacuum electronic transistors and novel devices

Who we are

IVNC, the International Vacuum Nanoelectronics Conference series, is devoted to nanoscience and technology of vacuum electron sources and their applications.

What we do

The conference aims to promote the understanding of physics, chemistry, electron emission and beam properties of nano-emitters based on various electron emission mechanisms, as well as the materials, growth, and fabrication technologies of novel cathodes and vacuum electronic devices.

Why us?

Established in 1988 by the founders of vacuum nanoelectronics,  IVNC brings together an international body of scientists and engineers to present and discuss their latest researches in vacuum micro and nanoelectronics.
