General Information


Welcome to ESBN2021 event that will take place from 13h to 18h CEST on June 14th & 15th


The research area of nanophotonics, the study of light at the nanoscale, has experienced a dramatic growth in the recent years. To further advance this field, it is essential to develop novel characterization techniques that are able to generate, probe and control light at length scales far below the diffraction limit of light.


Recently, electron-beam spectroscopies have emerged as powerful probes in nanophotonics research, fueled by the advent of improved microscopes and the exploration of brand new techniques. In particular, taking advantage of the extremely high spatial resolution in electron beam microscopy, novel techniques have appeared that combine the use of electron beams with optical spectroscopy. Cathodoluminescence imaging spectroscopy (CL) and Electron Energy Loss Spectroscopy (EELS) use high-energy beams in an SEM or TEM. Photoemission Electron Microscopy (PEEM) and Scanning Tunneling Microscopy (STM) enable electron beam spectroscopies to be performed at lower energies and are also becoming increasingly popular to provide insight into optical phenomena at the nanoscale. Electron beam phase-shaping techniques are now unveiling new properties of  optical materials.  Photon-induced near-field electron microscopy (PINEM) and newly emerging techniques that combine photon-ebeam interactions are revealing ultrafast phenomena with an unprecedented combination of spectral, spatial, and temporal resolutions. This altogether, have already introduced the novel field of electron-light interactions that cover interdisciplinary topics including matter-wave interferometry, holography, quantum optics, and materials science.
This workshop, which aims to review the state-of-the-art in electron spectroscopy for nanophotonics, is a 2-day event that will consist of invited talks, contributed talks, and e-poster presentations.


This is the 4th workshop in a series focusing on electron beam spectroscopy in nanophotonics.
Previous conferences have taken place in Paris (2019), Barcelona (2017), and Amsterdam (2014).
